Summary:

Another terrifying sci-fi page-turner from the author of The Tomorrow Code! Las Vegas is gone--destroyed in a terrorist attack. Black Hawk helicopters patrol the skies over New York City. And immersive online gaming is the most dangerous street drug around. In this dystopic near-future, technology has leapt forward once again, and neuro-headsets have replaced computer keyboards. Just slip on a headset, and it's the Internet at the speed of thought. For teen hacker Sam Wilson, a headset is a must. But as he becomes familiar with the new technology, he has a terrifying realization. If anything on his computer is vulnerable to a hack, what happens when his mind is linked to the system? Could consciousness itself be hijacked? Before he realizes what's happened, Sam's incursion against the world's largest telecommunications company leads him to the heart of the nation's cyberdefense network and brings him face to face with a terrifying and unforeseen threat.

Summary:

"The Ultimate Therapy addresses the question: will stem cells bring about new, effective therapies for brain disorders? Stem cell therapies are the subject of enormous hype. The International Society for Stem Cell Research notes the 'near magical hold' that stem cell therapies have over patients' imaginations. This is not healthy. The intention with this book is to try to introduce some realism into this discussion. Certainly, stem cell therapies have real therapeutic promise, but it is important that patients, doctors, ethicists, regulators, and the public at large understand their potential and their limitations. Stem cell therapies have failed in the past. We need to understand why, and learn for the future. The therapies offered by unlicensed clinics are not the same as those going forward into proper regulated trials. We all need to understand the difference, and why it matters. Regenerative medicine for the brain-were it to emerge-would be the ultimate therapy. Brain diseases are more than just killers. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and stroke steal our capacity for thought, emotion, and social interaction. They destroy human faculties to a far greater degree even than disorders such as cancer. Further, repairing brain tissue is the ultimate biomedical challenge. The human brain is the most complex structure in the known universe, a structure we still barely understand. To be able to rebuild it once damaged is surely the ultimate prize for biomedical science. It is also the ultimate ethical challenge. We can rebuild joints, reconstitute blood, and regenerate liver with barely a thought for ethical concerns. But the prospect for brain repair stirs atavistic fears. Will I be the same person with new brain cells in my head? Stem cells offer the prospect for bringing this ultimate therapy to life, in a way that could be envisaged for no other therapeutic vehicle. Repairing brain with stem cells: truly the Ultimate Therapy"--

Summary:

Sound and Music explores the effects of music on emotion and reason from a psychological point of view. Jack Orbach examines the brain of the listener, performer, and composer, engaged in hearing, feeling, understanding, and enjoying musical compositions. He follows the development of music, beginning with the Greek philosopher Pythagoras, who first studied music scientifically, through what is known about music as a science today. Orbach begins with the basic physics of music, and advances into the components as music comes together from different sounds, effecting the mind of those who hear it. He also details the organization of music as it was ordered and manipulated, including musical aptitude in relation to intelligence, while examining the popular methods of training and the mind's response to these processes. Finally, he presents the place of musical therapy throughout history, as well as a comparison of musical practices in various parts of the world.

Summary:

Miracle Boy was a science fiction novel with interesting characters and well-woven plots. It involved the Dow Jones Stock Market averages and the life of a day trader, medical dramas caused by the shortcomings of medical technology, human relationships, philosophical concepts of life and death, and adventure with romantic sub-plots and interesting twists. The over all theme of the novel was that a beautiful, happy and healthy boy brought joy to his adopted father, his babysitters and their friends. The boy possessed a power to foresee the movement of the Dow Jones Stock Market to create a fortune for his adopted father. He possessed a powerful light source, and an advanced intelligent radiation therapy that aimed to destroy only cancerous cells in the human body. He restored humans' minds from coma and insanity by rebooting the human operating system using the copy of the person's health profile when they once were healthy. He was a sex therapist, and brought back his favorite lady's joy of sex. He was the medical god of the Peruvian villagers, and the angel who granted his adopted father's wishes.

Summary:

This volume presents a basic overview of the human brain. The brain is the center of the nervous system in all vertebrate, and most invertebrate, animals. In vertebrates, the brain is located in the head, protected by the skull and close to the primary sensory apparatus of vision, hearing, balance, taste, and smell. This work contains a quick look at mankind's knowledge about the human brain throughout history. It also looks at human brain anatomy, the neurons, sensory perception, and the capacity for language, intelligence and creativity, memory, psychiatry, states of consciousness and sleep, as well as other rudimentary examinations of several medical aspects of neurology.

Summary:

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of disability worldwide. Each year 1.7 million new TBIs occur in the United States, and it is also considered a signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Despite the relatively high incidence-within both civilian and military populations-the diagnosis and treatment, particularly of mild TBI/concussion, remains an inexact science. Traumatic Brain Injury: A Clinician's Guide to Diagnosis, Management, and Rehabilitation is a concise guide designed for neurologists, primary care, and sports physicians and other medical providers, psychologists and neuropsychologists, and athletic trainers who may evaluate and care for patients with TBI. The book features summaries of the most pertinent areas of diagnosis and therapy, which can be readily accessed by the busy clinician/professional. In addition, the book's treatment algorithms provide a highly practical reference to cutting edge therapies. A superb contribution to the literature, Traumatic Brain Injury: A Clinician's Guide to Diagnosis, Management, and Rehabilitation offers a well-designed, well-written, useful resource for all providers who treat patients with TBI.

Summary:

This book gathers some of the most talented and well-informed experts in the field, who not only summarize the recent breakthroughs and new findings, but also shed light on future research. Special emphasis is placed on the exciting new understanding of the molecular structure of one of the major enzymes (type 1 iodothyronine deiodinase) involved in the activation of the thyroid hormone. This breakthrough culminates the major effort in this field around the world. As a result, we can study the regulation of thyroid hormone activation mechanism at the molecular level. Two other important deiodinase enzymes (types II and III) are also reviewed. Alternate pathways of thyroid hormone metabolism represent another major advance. These pathways are associated with a variety of physiological and disease states, including fasting, glucocorticoid excess, fetal development, and inflammatory and non-thyroidal illnesses. The understanding of these pathways assists us to better understand the physiological and biological basis of the disease process and thus to improve clinical management of patients with thyroidal and non-thyroidal illnesses.
