Abstract
The accelerating advancement in research in neurodevelopmental disorders -- including autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, and more -- has enormous implications for clinical practice. Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders provides clinicians with up-to-date information on the impact these advances have on the standard of care in the range of disorders commonly encountered by both primary and subspecialist physicians. The authors, affiliated with the UC-Davis MIND Institute, explain the latest findings from the biological, behavioral, and clinical sciences in ways that are accessible to clinicians and helpful to patients and their families.

Abstract
This unique title is designed to illustrate and foster how a closer working relationship between pediatricians and subspecialists can make childhood medicine work more seamlessly. Despite the common lack of training for pediatricians in pediatric neurosurgery, they are challenged almost daily with caring for children with neurologic conditions. Common Neurological Conditions in the Pediatric Practice is replete with a wide range of instructional case vignettes and is organized into sections that loosely approximate the neurologic development of a child and address issues that are commonly encountered. The first section reviews neurologic development and birth related trauma commonly seen in the neonatal intensive care unit. The second part addresses findings commonly encountered by a pediatrician in a child's first month of life. The third section is a comprehensive review of hydrocephalus. Part four describes state of the art imaging techniques for the central nervous system in children, from pre-natal ultrasound through MRI and CT; and the fifth part consists of individual explorations of common neurosurgical conditions that many pediatricians are uncomfortable managing, including brain tumors, spasticity, and vascular lesions to use as a reference tool when caring for a complex neurosurgical patient. Finally a series of chapters related to head trauma, including sections on non-accidental trauma and concussion management, completes the text.

Abstract
This book offers a practical tool for handling neuromuscular emergencies, and is divided by the main neuromuscular diseases on the basis of their anatomical and clinical location: diseases affecting the anterior horn of the spinal cord (tetanus), those that affect the nerve roots and nerves (SGB, multiple mononeuritis, porphyria), the neuromuscular junction (MG and botulism) and, lastly, muscle pathologies (rhabdomyolysis, malignant hyperthermia, periodic paralysis). It provides updated diagnostic/therapeutic protocols and decision-making algorithms for each pathology, and examines a range of scenarios on the basis of clinical cases. Emergencies in Neuromuscular Disease will be of interests for a wide variety of specialists including neurologist, neurophysiologists and anesthesiologists.
