Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury, 1ed

|

This timely book reports recent progress in research on traumatic brain injury (TBI) by leading investigators encompassing translational and clinical studies. The text covers epidemiology, pathophysiology, brain imaging, cognition, behavioral sequelae, and clinical trials of innovative treatments, including new approaches to rehabilitation. The range of TBI mechanisms represented in this cutting-edge book includes closed head trauma and blast-related injury, and the spectrum of TBI severity. Chapters offer a developmental perspective, including the effects of TBI on cognitive development in children and outcome studies in adults. Contributors from various countries provide a global perspective on this worldwide health problem. The editors have synthesized the contents in a concluding chapter. Researchers and clinicians will find this volume to be an informative, authoritative reference for current TBI research.

Review

“All professionals working in the field of TBI will want to purchase this book as it brings together the latest research in this complex area. Contributors from around the globe provide the latest information on historical, medical, cognitive, emotional, psychosocial and pharmacological issues in TBI. Also included are discussions of some areas rarely addressed such as blast injuries and TBI in elderly people. I particularly liked the consideration of outcome measures, a vitally important topic in TBI.”
-Professor Barbara A. Wilson, The Oliver Zangwill Centre for Rehabilitation, Ely, United Kingdom

“[R]esearch and study to treat TBI is extremely important, and this volume makes a significant contribution to that purpose. Each chapter supplies a voluminous amount of knowledge and insight being imparted by the author(s). In addition, charts, drawings, photos, and tables provide more information, contributing to the understanding of the subject matters being discussed. The lists of Reference materials at the end of the chapters provide further opportunities for you to consult other works and expand and deepen your understanding of any particular topic. This is a comprehensive, authoritative text.” –Nano Khilnani, Biz India
“This is a high-quality, well-researched book that makes a unique contribution to the existing literature in this field. It nicely reviews fundamental concepts while at the same time pushes boundaries, exploring the latest on both the clinical and research fronts. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to better understand traumatic brain injury, including clinicians, researchers, and healthcare policymakers.” —DOODY’S
