Description

Brain Mapping: The Disorders is the first comprehensive text to describe the uses of the latest brain mapping technologies in the evaluation of patients with neurological, neurosurgical and psychiatric disorders. With contributions from the leading figures in the field, this heavily illustrated text is organized by disorders of brain systems, with specific examples of how one should use current neuroimaging techniques to evaluate patients with specific cerebral disorders. Comprehensive in scope, the text discusses patient evaluations using the wide range of modern magnetic resonance imaging techniques, positron emission tomography, single photon emission computed tomography, optical intrinsic signal imaging, electroencephalography, magnetoencephalography, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. The third in this brain mapping series, Brain Mapping: The Disorders, is the ultimate text for anyone interested in the use of brain mapping techniques to study patients with disorders of the central nervous system.

Reviews

"a delightfully readable and reasonably comprehensive review of the vast array of investigations seeking to map mind and brain. The figures are magnificent, both in their beauty and their effectiveness in conveying key concepts. ...will remain an important resource regarding the history of the field and the issues that must be faced in designing and interpreting brain mapping experiments. ...Brain Mapping: The Disorders provides an extraordinary guide to the use of functional imaging and atlases in clinical diagnosis, management, and research. ...provides the reader with a uniquely expansive perspective on brain mapping. The authors span many nations and several disciplines; the result is a sweeping view of the field." @source:—-ANNALS OF NEUROLOGY (April 2001) @qu:"Brain Mapping: The Disorders is one of the most impressive arguments for the potential utility of functional imaging in clinical neuroscience that I am aware of...A broad range of readers with an interest in neurological or psychiatric disease will find much to engage them in this large book." @source:--P.M. Matthews, University Department of Clinical Neurology, The Radcliffe Infirmary, in BRAIN (2001)
