The perioperative neuroscience is a specialty that is continuously evolving. This specialty depends on the integration of neuroanesthesiology, neurology, neurointensive care, neuroradiology, neurointeventional radiology and neurosurgery. This book provides in-depth information for the most recent evidence-based advances in perioperative neurosciences.

It includes research on postoperative cognitive dysfunctions, the effect of anesthetics on the growing brain, the new theories for the development of cerebral aneurysm and cerebral vasospasm, and many more. A unique feature of the book is the world-renowned authorities in anesthesiology, neurosurgery, neurointensive care, neurology, and neuroradiology and neurointeventional radiology who helped compile it. Consequently, this book will give the reader a unique opportunity to have in-depth coverage for the most recent advances in this very important specialty.
