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.
For first-year graduate courses in Econometrics for Social Scientists. This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States. This text serves as a bridge between an introduction to the field of econometrics and the professional literature for graduate students in the social sciences, focusing on applied econometrics and theoretical concepts. Features + Benefits How much theoretical background on the study of econometrics do your students have before entering your classroom? By the end of the semester, do they typically walk away with a solid understanding of both applied econometrics and theoretical concepts? This text has two objectives that are intended to help students bridge the gap between the field of econometrics and the professional literature for graduate students in social sciences: To introduce students to applied econometrics To present students with sufficient theoretical background so they will recognize new variants of the models learned about here as natural extensions of common principles. What are some important concepts you feel are necessary in understanding the fundamental concepts of econometrics? The arrangement of this text begins with formal presentation of the development of the fundamental pillar of econometrics. Some highlights include: The classical linear regression model; Chapters 1-7 The generalized regression model and non-linear regressions; Chapters 8-11 Instrumental variables and its application to the estimation of simultaneous equations models; Chapters 12 and 13 Matrix Algebra This text makes heavy use of this feature. All the matrix algebra needed in the text contains a description of numerical methods that will be useful to practicing econometricians. This can be found in: What types of real-world examples do your students find most engaging? How does this help them understand course material? Once the fundamental concepts are addressed, the second half proceeds to explain the involved methods of analysis that contemporary researchers use in analysis of real world data. Chapters 14-18 present different estimation methodologies such as: o Parametric and nonparametric methods o Generalized method of moments estimator o Maximum likelihood estimation o Bayesian methods Do you tend to provide students with a broad coverage of all possible alternatives to the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) or would you rather focus in on what is most used by researchers in the real-world? Where there exist robust alternatives to the MLE, such as moments based estimators for the random effects linear model, researchers have tended to gravitate to them. Our treatment of maximum likelihood estimation is more compartmentalized in this edition. For example, Chapter 16 has been streamlined into one presentation of the ML estimator, covering the: o Multiplicative heteroscedasticity model o Random effects model o Regressions model OTHER POINTS OF DISTINCTION How often do you incorporate information from outside sources into the classroom? Do you ever share articles and journals to your class featuring the most recent developments in econometrics? New and interesting developments have been included in the area of microeconometrics (panel data and models for discrete choice) and in time series which continues its rapid development. Is it ever difficult to formulate a concrete outline with some econometrics books on the market? A substantial rearrangement of the material has been made, by using advice of readers to make it easier to construct a course outline with this text. Table of Contents Part I: The Linear Regression Model Chapter 1: Econometrics Chapter 2: The Linear Regression Model Chapter 3: Least Squares Chapter 4: The Least Squares Estimator Chapter 5: Hypothesis Tests and Model Selection Chapter 6: Functional Form and Structural Change Chapter 7: Nonlinear, Semiparametric, and Nonparametric Regression Models Chapter 8: Endogeneity and Instrumental Variable Estimation Part II: Generalized Regression Model and Equation Systems Chapter 9: The Generalized Regression Model and Heteroscedasticity Chapter 10: Systems of Equations Chapter 11: Models for Panel Data Part III: Estimation Methodology Chapter 12: Estimation Frameworks in Econometrics Chapter 13: Minimum Distance Estimation and the Generalized Method of Moments Chapter 14: Maximum

Part of the Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History series. In May 1970 aerial photographs revealed what US military intelligence believed was a POW camp near the town of Son Tay, 23 miles west of North Vietnam´s capital city. When American officials decided the prisoners were attempting to send signals, they set in motion a daring plan to rescue the more than 60 airmen thought to be held captive. On November 20 a joint group of volunteers from US Army Green Berets and US Air Force Special Operations Forces perfectly executed the raid, only to find the prisoners´ quarters ∅ the POWs had been moved to a different location. Initially the Son Tay raid was a devastating disappointment to the men who risked their lives to carry it out. Many vocal critics labeled it as a spectacular failure of our nation´s intelligence network. However, subsequent events proved that the audacity of the rescue attempt stunned the North Vietnamese, who implemented immediate changes in the treatment of their captives. The operation also restored the prisoners´ faith that their nation had not forgotten them. John Gargus not only participated in the planning phase of the Son Tay rescue but also flew as a lead navigator for the strike force. This revised edition incorporates the most recent information from raid participants and includes recent translations of North Vietnamese perspectives. No previous account of this top-secret action has given such a full account or such insight into both the execution and the aftermath of Son Tay. The book is published by Texas A&M Press. 1.
