Like its preceding editions, this atlas is an indispensable guide to the field of neurology, featuring the most clinically essential images and figures. Chapters offer insight and research written by deeply practiced, knowledgeable neurologists that is supplemented with detailed imagery, tables, algorithms, and delineative drawings. Topics covered include developmental and genetic diseases, neuroendocrine disorders, critical care neurology, cerebrovascular disease, dementias, behavioral neurology, neuro-oncology, movement disorders, epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases, infectious diseases, neuroimmunology, neurotoxic disorders, and headache. The authors also delve into specific issues currently prevalent in neuroscientific research, including Alzheimer´s disease, dementia, Machado-Joseph disease, Huntington´s disease, and brain scanning with PET and fMRI. The Atlas of Clinical Neurology, 4th Edition serves as a comprehensive and premier visual resource for neurologists.

This detailed volume explores essential protocols for the study of Proteus mirabilis which, despite its genetic relatedness to species such as E. coli , often requires specialized handling techniques. This opportunistic bacterial pathogen, most often known as a causative agent of complicated urinary tract infection, is addressed in chapters from global experts in the field. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Proteus mirabilis : Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide for researchers intrigued by the renewed appreciation for the medical impact and environmental adaptability of this organism, coupled with continued fascination for its dynamic behavior.
Why would two women separated by thousands of miles share a common thread involving alien abduction? Both cases are supported by multiple witnesses and have substantial evidence. Both women experienced missing time while driving with a companion and were later taken from their homes. Both have been unwilling participants in ongoing experimental procedures that appear to follow family genetic lines. Both witnesses have given detailed descriptions of the crafts - interior, technology, medical procedures, messages from the visitors, and the types of ET they have encountered, including their society´s hierarchical structure. Even more startling, both have independently described finding themselves on identical huge craft within the same time frame. The Alien Abduction Files finally reveals: The little-known details of alien experimental procedures The theoretical science that can explain alien technology The messages conveyed by the ETs to abduction experiencers The vulnerabilities and benefits of living life as an abduction experiencer The evidence that these phenomena are real 1.

von Recklinghausen syndrome is a complex genetic disorder that range from mild hardly noticed condition to an extremely terrifying progressive disorder with numerous complications and serious disfigurement of the body caused by generalized or huge growth of tumors. The condition was named after Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen who published in 1882 a detailed description of the disorder including information from previous literature. However, the condition has not been well described or documented in Iraqi children despite it is believed that the condition was observed. The main aim of this book is to describe a unique case of von Recklinghausen syndrome in an Iraqi child associated with right sided basal ganglion abnormalities on brain MRI. A second aim of this book is to describe the early historic documentation of the syndrome in the literature.
Predicting the future for financial gain is a difficult, sometimes profitable activity. The focus of this book is the application of biologically inspired algorithms (BIAs) to financial modelling.In a detailed introduction, the authors explain computer trading on financial markets and the difficulties faced in financial market modelling. Then Part I provides a thorough guide to the various bioinspired methodologies neural networks, evolutionary computing (particularly genetic algorithms and grammatical evolution), particle swarm and ant colony optimization, and immune systems. Part II brings the reader through the development of market trading systems. Finally, Part III examines real-world case studies where BIA methodologies are employed to construct trading systems in equity and foreign exchange markets, and for the prediction of corporate bond ratings and corporate failures.The book was written for those in the finance community who want toapply BIAs in financial modelling, and for computer scientists who want an introduction to this growing application domain.
Turing´s connectionism provides a detailed and in-depth analysis of Turing´s almost forgotten ideas on connectionist machines. In a little known paper entitled ´´Intelligent Machinery´´, Turing already investigated connectionist models as early as 1948. Unfortunately, his work was dismissed by his employer as a ´´schoolboy essay´´ and went unpublished until 1968, 14 years after his death. In this book, Christof Teuscher analyzes all aspects of Turing´s ´´unorganized machines´´. Turing himself also proposed a sort of genetic algorithm to train the networks. This idea has been resumed by the author and genetic algorithms are used to build and train Turing´s unorganized machines. Teuscher´s work starts from Turing´s initial ideas, but importantly goes beyond them. Many new kinds of machines and new aspects are considered, e.g., hardware implementation, analysis of the complex dynamics of the networks, hypercomputation, and learning algorithms.
