The one-stop resource on deep brain stimulation for functional neurosurgeons! Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used to modulate dysfunctional circuits in the brain with stimulation pulses applied to specific target areas of the brain. Globally, DBS procedures have been most commonly performed for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor, but there are now new and growing research efforts studying DBS for psychiatric disorders and epilepsy. Deep Brain Stimulation: Techniques and Practices written by the Society for Innovative Neuroscience in Neurosurgery along with Dr. William S. Anderson and distinguished experts presents the latest DBS approaches. The book begins with a history of DBS, general frame-based techniques, patient selection primarily for movement disorders, multidisciplinary collaboration, and ethical considerations. Subsequent chapters detail diverse technologies and disease-specific treatment for Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, OCD, epilepsy, major depression, Tourette syndrome, emerging psychiatric indications, and pediatric applications. Key highlights Lead placement techniques utilizing currently available customized platforms and robotics Microelectrode recording and image-based direct targeting with MRI and CT to enhance lead placement Lesioning methods including radiofrequency, and MR-guided focused ultrasound Discussion of recent innovations in tractography to delineate white matter tracts in the brain and closed loop stimulation DBS has helped thousands of patients with intractable conditions, allowing for a programmable therapy with durable treatment effect. This remarkable guide provides the essentials for functional neurosurgeons to pursue intraoperative research opportunities in this growing subspecialty and incorporate DBS into clinical practice.

Train Your Brain to Energize Your Life. In The Sharp Solution, Heidi Hanna introduces listeners to a brain-based approach to realistic, sustainable energy management that supports a healthier brain, and as a result a healthier, happier body. By engaging our brain, we can strategically re-wire how we operate, creating more energy and improving productivity while simultaneously reducing stress. As a result, we become more focused and productive, flexible and resilient, and able to sustain higher levels of health and performance over time. These critical aspects of "cognitive fitness" - mental strength, flexibility, and endurance - allow us to function at our best and enjoy life to the fullest. Breaking down complicated concepts into easy to understand stories and applications, Hanna walks listeners through a step-by-step process of designing a personal action plan that can be utilized to decrease stress, balance hormones, increase energy, and improve overall health, happiness, and performance. Heidi Hanna, PhD, is a performance coach and keynote speaker who has trained thousands of individuals on practical ways to incorporate positive psychology and wellness strategies to improve productivity and performance. We all know what we should be doing to create a more optimal life - eating better, exercising regularly, sleeping more, taking time to relax, and having more balance in our life. But The Sharp Solution enables you to actually make those changes to your habits. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heidi Hanna.

Natural-Born Cyborgs

From Robocop to the Terminator to Eve 8, no image better captures our deepest fears about technology than the cyborg, the person who is both flesh and metal, brain and electronics. But philosopher and cognitive scientist Andy Clark sees it differently. Cyborgs, he writes, are not something to be feared--we already are cyborgs. In Natural-Born Cyborgs, Clark argues that what makes humans so different from other species is our capacity to fully incorporate tools and supporting cultural practices into our existence. Technology as simple as writing on a sketchpad, as familiar as Google or a cellular phone, and as potentially revolutionary as mind-extending neural implants--all exploit our brains' astonishingly plastic nature. Our minds are primed to seek out and incorporate non-biological resources, so that we actually think and feel through our best technologies. Drawing on his expertise in cognitive science, Clark demonstrates that our sense of self and of physical presence can be expanded to a remarkable extent, placing the long-existing telephone and the emerging technology of telepresence on the same continuum. He explores ways in which we have adapted our lives to make use of technology (the measurement of time, for example, has wrought enormous changes in human existence), as well as ways in which increasingly fluid technologies can adapt to individual users during normal use. Bio-technological unions, Clark argues, are evolving with a speed never seen before in history. As we enter an age of wearable computers, sensory augmentation, wireless devices, intelligent environments, thought-controlled prosthetics, and rapid-fire information search and retrieval, the linebetween the user and her tools grows thinner day by day. "This double whammy of plastic brains and increasingly responsive and well-fitted tools creates an unprecedented opportunity for ever-closer kinds of human-machine merger," he writes, arguing that such a merger is

Reader, Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digit...

From the author of Proust and the Squid, a lively, ambitious, and deeply informative epistolary book that considers the future of the reading brain and our capacity for critical thinking, empathy, and reflection as we become increasingly dependent on digital technologies.A decade ago, Maryanne Wolf’s Proust and the Squid revealed what we know about how the brain learns to read and how reading changes the way we think and feel. Since then, the ways we process written language have changed dramatically with many concerned about both their own changes and that of children. New research on the reading brain chronicles these changes in the brains of children and adults as they learn to read while immersed in a digitally dominated medium.Drawing deeply on this research, this audiobook comprises a series of letters Wolf writes to us to describe her concerns and her hopes about what is happening to the reading brain as it unavoidably changes to adapt to digital mediums. Wolf raises difficult questions, including:Will children learn to incorporate the full range of "deep reading" processes that are at the core of the expert reading brain?Will the mix of a seemingly infinite set of distractions for children’s attention and their quick access to immediate, voluminous information alter their ability to think for themselves?With information at their fingertips, will the next generation learn to build their own storehouse of knowledge, which could impede the ability to make analogies and draw inferences from what they know?Will all these influences, in turn, change the formation in children and the use in adults of "slower" cognitive processes like critical thinking, personal reflection, imagination, and empathy that comprise deep reading and that influence both how we think and how we live our lives?Will the chain of digital influences ultimately influence the use of the critical analytical and e 1.

Thought Revolution invites readers to unlock their whole brain to change the way they see themselves and find the truth in whatever challenges them. Encompassing twelve years of research, the book takes readers on an unexpected journey that will set them free - and it all begins with moving the pen from one hand to the other. The technique is called “intuitive,” or “nondominant” hand writing and is the basis for this revolutionary approach to making lasting life changes. Tapping the nondominant subconscious right brain through nondominant hand writing, or drawing, can act as a direct pipeline to one’s inner truth, open up creative problem-solving abilities, and help people think outside the box. Others have reported improvements in relationships, reduction in stress, better physical health, discovery of hidden talents, deeper spiritual awareness, healing from trauma, breakthroughs in career, accessing inner wisdom, and connection with a higher power. Inside Thought Revolution William A. Donius offers the science behind nondominant hand writing and teaches readers how to incorporate nondominant hand writing in their own lives.
