This book is a comprehensive overview of the clinical and scientific aspects of Autism from the leading experts in the field. The clinical section covers everything from epidemiological features to epigenetic regulation to behavioral therapies and much in between. The basic science section presents the latest knowledge on the underlying causes of the disorder including the role of various neurotransmitters, neurexins and neuroligins, reelin, and other proteins. Chapters also explore the cognition and motor control in autism and the connection between oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction and autism. The thorough description of these underlying causes may help researchers and clinicians find more effective treatments and therapies for the 1 in 68 American children who have been diagnosed with Autism.

Autism is no longer considered a rare disease, and the Center for Disease Control now estimates that upwards of 730,000 children in the US struggle with this isolating brain disorder. New research is leading to greater understanding of and ability to treat the disorder at an earlier age. It is hoped that further genetic and imaging studies will lead to biologically based diagnostic techniques that could help speed detection and allow early, more effective intervention. Edited by two leaders in the field, this volume offers a current survey and synthesis of the most important findings of the neuroscience behind autism of the past 20 years. With chapters authored by experts in each topic, the volume explores etiology, neuropathology, imaging, and pathways/models. Offering a broad background of ASDs with a unique focus on neurobiology, the volume offers more than the others on the market with a strictly clinical focus or a single authored perspective that fails to offer expert, comprehensive coverage. Researchers and graduate students alike with an interest in developmental disorders and autism will benefit, as will autism specialists across psychology and medicine looking to expand their expertise. Uniquely explores ASDs from a neurobiological angle, looking to uncover the molecular/cellular basis rather than to merely catalog the commonly used behavioral interventions Comprehensive coverage synthesizes widely dispersed research, serving as one-stop shopping for neurodevelopmental disorder researchers and autism specialists Edited work with chapters authored by leaders in the field around the globe – the broadest, most expert coverage available

For more than 35 years, Kaufman’s Clinical Neurology for Psychiatrists has been the only reference to focus on the must-know aspects of neurology for psychiatrists. Now in a revised 8th Edition, this classic text brings you up to date with essential knowledge in clinical neurology with new topics, new illustrations, and new questions to help you excel on the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination. Discusses timely, clinically-relevant topics such as traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer and non-Alzheimer dementias, other age-related neurologic conditions, neurologic illnesses that present with symptoms of autism, neurologic effects of illicit drug use, and current treatments. Correlates neurologic illnesses with the DSM-5. Includes nearly 2,000 multiple-choice questions - all written to help you succeed on the ABPN certifying exam. Features new and improved clinical illustrations throughout: life-like patient sketches, anatomy line drawings, CTs, MRIs, and EEGs that demonstrate clinical features.

GAIN A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO HUMAN NEUROLOGIC DISORDERS Molecular Neuropharmacology first reviews the fundamental biochemistry of the functioning nervous system and then describes how nerve cells communicate with one another through numerous types of neurotransmitters involving amino acids, monoamines, neuropeptides, and neurotrophic factors, among several others. The neuropharmacology and neural circuits that underlie complex behaviors as well as major neural disorders are also discussed as are the drugs used to treat those conditions. In the final section, the authors use the concepts presented in the first two sections to explain how irregularities in the biochemistry of neuronal interactions can lead to a wide array of clinical manifestations. FEATURES NEW chapter on neuroinflammation All chemical structure illustrations have been redrawn and improved Fully updated to reflect the latest breakthroughs and new drugs The most well-written and easily understood work on the subject More than 300 full-color illustrations!

Principles of Child Neurology is a comprehensive textbook on the diagnosis and management of neurologic disorders affecting neonates, infants, children, and adolescents. Patterned after Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology, this text begins with ``Approach to the Patient,'' then details the cardinal manifestations and the major disease categories for diagnosing pediatric neurologic disorders.
