Brain Neurotrauma : Molecular, Neuropsychological, and Rehabilitation Aspects Hardback
Part of the Frontiers in Neuroengineering Series series
Every year, an estimated 1.7 million Americans sustain brain injury.
Long-term disabilities impact nearly half of moderate brain injury survivors and nearly 50,000 of these cases result in death.
Brain Neurotrauma: Molecular, Neuropsychological, and Rehabilitation Aspects provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account on the latest developments in the area of neurotrauma, including brain injury pathophysiology, biomarker research, experimental models of CNS injury, diagnostic methods, and neurotherapeutic interventions as well as neurorehabilitation strategies in the field of neurotraum research.
The book includes several sections on neurotrauma mechanisms, biomarker discovery, neurocognitive/neurobehavioral deficits, and neurorehabilitation and treatment approaches.
It also contains a section devoted to models of mild CNS injury, including blast and sport-related injuries.
Over the last decade, the field of neurotrauma has witnessed significant advances, especially at the molecular, cellular, and behavioral levels.
This progress is largely due to the introduction of novel techniques, as well as the development of new animal models of central nervous system (CNS) injury.
This book, with its diverse coherent content, gives you insight into the diverse and heterogeneous aspects of CNS pathology and/or rehabilitation needs.
