Description

Neonatal Neurology is designed to update the reader on the latest and clinically relevant advances in the study of neurological diseases that are diagnosed in the fetal and neonatal periods. With recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging and digital electroencephalography recording, as well as genetic testing and diagnosis, there is expanding awareness of early onset neurological conditions and how early neurological diagnosis can improve prediction of outcome and how management can improve subsequent neurodevelopmental outcome. The volume covers diagnosis and management of congenital conditions, including brain malformations, neuromuscular conditions and genetic epilepsies, as well as acquired injury related to peri-partum events, prematurity, critical illness, and systemic diseases.

Key Features

  • Provides an in-depth understanding of the basic scientific research, translational research, and clinical consensus across neonatal and fetal medicine
  • Explores how early neurological diagnosis can improve prediction of outcome and how management can improve subsequent neurodevelopmental outcome
  • Features chapters co-authored by two experts, combining expertise in both neonatal and fetal neurology

Readership

Basic and clinical researchers in neuroscience; fellows, residents, and practicing clinicians in neurology, neonatal neurology, pediatric neurology, and neuropathology

About the Series Volume Editors

Linda S. de Vries Series Volume Editor

Linda de Vries obtained her PhD degree in Utrecht (1987) with Leo van de Brande. The degree was based on data collected during a 4 year research period at the Hammersmith Postgraduate school in London where she worked with Lilly and Victor Dubowitz in the field of Neonatal Neurology. Between 1987 and 1989 she did her Pediatric Neurology fellowship in Leuven with Paul Casaer. Since 1989, she has worked in the department of Neonatology in Utrecht, where she is a professor in Neonatal Neurology since 2001. Her research focuses on prediction of neurodevelopmental outcome in high risk preterm and full-term newborns, using neurophysiology and neuro-imaging methods. These at risk children are also seen by her in the follow-up clinic until early childhood. She has a special interest in neonatal stroke and brain plasticity. Her work has been published in >300 publications. She is also an adjunct professor in neonatal neurology at University of California San Francisco (UCSF).

Hannah C. Glass Series Volume Editor

Dr. Hannah C. Glass is a pediatric neurologist, founding co-director of the Neurointensive Care Nursery (NICN), and Director of Neonatal Critical Care Services at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. She is also the program director of the Neonatal Neurology Fellowship Program. Dr. Glass specializes in brain focused care for children with neurological conditions diagnosed in the newborn period, including hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, stroke and seizures, as well as brain injury following preterm birth. She sees children during the neonatal period, and through childhood.
