The Medical Directory 2014, 168th Edition 168th Edition

First published in 1845, this directory has established an enviable reputation for the quantity and extent of its information on UK-registered medical practitioners. It provides mini career profiles of doctors listed A-Z by surname. Each record contains, if available, full name, primary and other qualifications, professional contact details, current and past appointments, specialty, society memberships, and special interests. Qualification information within the directory is sourced from the General Medical Council (GMC).

A full entry contains: name, unique reference number allocated by the GMC, contact details – usually the main NHS hospital or surgery address for doctors still engaged in medical or clinical practice, primary medical qualification and other qualifications, current and most recent appointments (up to three), specialty and special interests, and up to five society memberships.

Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior 2014th Edition

Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior is a timely and major contribution to the literature that comprehensively addresses the neuromechanisms, predispositions, and latest developments in the evaluation and management of concussive injuries.  Also known as mild traumatic brain injury, concussion in athletics is a growing public health concern with increased attention focusing on treatment and management of this puzzling epidemic. Despite the increasing occurrence and prevalence of concussions in athletics, there is no universally accepted definition, or “gold standard,” for its assessment. Concussion in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior provides a range of major findings that may shed important light on current controversy within the field.  The book is organized in five parts: Evaluation of Concussion and Current Development; Biomechanical Mechanisms of Concussion and Helmets; Neural Substrates, Biomarkers and Brain Imaging of Concussion Research; Pediatric Sport-related Concussions; and Clinical Management and Rehabilitation of Concussions. An invaluable contribution to the literature, Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior is a state-of-the-art reference that will be of significant interest to a wide range of clinicians, researchers, administrators, and policy makers.

Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism: The Rhythm of Life 1st Edition

Providing a nuanced study of the connections between sleep, circadian rhythms, and metabolis, this informative book examines how circadian actions affect the liver and adipose tissue, the brain, and metabolism. This important book introduces the reader to circadian rhythms in the body and the external cues that set them, discusses on a molecular and organ level how disrupting these clocks results in metabolic and sleep disorders, and looks at the clinical applications of circadian rhythms, with a focus on sleep.

The book covers a variety of important research in the field, including:

• The power of computational biology to uncover new nodes in the network of circadian rhythms

• Circadian rhythms as they relates to obesity

• How late-night shift conditions impair the body’s ability to keep time and promote metabolic diseases and how this can be mitigated by strategic planning of feeding times

• The relationship between the suprachiasmatic nuclei and orexin neurons, demonstrating the elegant interplay between our biological clocks and wakefulness

• How sleep disorders can result from irregular circadian rhythms and potential ways to diagnose this in individuals

• How sleeping behaviors can disturb the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the repercussions of this disruption on female reproduction

• How disruption of sleep can be clinically beneficial for depressed patients

• How mental state is influenced by circadian rhythm

Hereditary Colorectal Cancer: Proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on Colorectal Cance

Since the success in chemical induction of cancer in rabbit’s ear skin by K. Yamagiwa in 1915, oncologists of the world have come to believe that they can only solve their problems by means of animal experimen­ tation. The importance of environmental factors became moreevident in 1935 when T. Yoshida and T. Sasaki introduced azodye hepatocarcino­ genesis in rats. In the domain of the gastrointestinal tract, T. Sugimura has more recently accumulated enough evidence to indicate that locally active chemical mutagens are carcinogenic. In contrast, principal approaches to colorectal tumors have been quite different: emphasis has been placed on gene identification. Long before cancer of the large bowel was recognized, importance of the roles of adenomatosis coli and its familial occurrence attracted the attention of epidemiologists and geneticists. Morphological characteri­ zation and analysis of hereditary trends of human material have already bad a long history, and recently detailed analysis of genetic material has become feasible in the wake of rapid development in our knowledge of the oncoviruses, oncogenes, suppressor genes, chromosomal and DNA mapping, molecular mutation and so on. lt is true that in colorectal pathology, and in no other field, these areas of research have been explored more extensively and decisively. The identification of previ­ ously ill-defined lesions such as precancers and benign neoplasms have been improved because sequential changes can be observed in multiple samples spread over a wide area and followed up in due course.
