Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior 2014th Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1493902946]

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.

Sports Nutrition Needs for Child and Adolescent Athletes Hardcover – May 6, 2016

51ih3j7h4al-_sx333_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1466579749]

As the number of child and adolescent athletes continues to increase each year, more children are being exposed to greater training volumes and increasing physical demands―making the need for nutritional and recovery guidance increasingly important. While massive amounts of empirical research are published each year on responses and adaptations to exercise and nutrition, a relative lack of this data is focused on children and adolescents.

Filling this need, Sports Nutrition Needs for Child and Adolescent Athletes explores the optimal sports nutrition needs for the child and adolescent athlete in three, detailed sections. The first section―Nutritional Foundation―supplies a comprehensive look at topics that relate to nearly every athlete. It focuses on the need for optimal nutrition in youth athlete populations, highlighting energy, body composition, hydration, and both macro- and micro-nutrient requirements.

The second section―Special Considerations in Child and Adolescent Athletes―focuses on topics that are more specific. This section includes coverage of the impact of common recreational drugs on exercise performance, steroid use in youth and associated dangers, key elements of working with diabetic and other clinically relevant populations, as well as discussions that relate to overweight and weight-conscious athletes, respectively.

The final section―A Hands-On Approach―reviews nutritional programs for both child and adolescent athletes. It uses an easy-to-understand approach to discuss and apply situations that can challenge athletes, their parents, and coaches by making sure young athletes are well fueled and recovered for all sporting situations.

For the purposes of the research presented in this book, a child athlete is defined as an athlete between the ages of 7 and 12 years while an adolescent athlete is defined as an athlete 13–17 years of age.

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0443101183]

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Designed to help readers understand and evaluate the relationship between exercise, immune function and infection risk, this book presents evidence for the “J-shaped” relationship between exercise load and infection risk. It also describes the components of the human immune system and key functions that protect the body from disease, the impact of acute and chronic psychological stress on immune function, and practical guidelines for minimizing the risk of immunodepression and infection in athletes. Further chapters explore different ways of measuring immune function, as well as the effects of heavy training on innate and specific (acquired) immunity, exercise in environmental extremes, and nutrition. Connections between exercise, infection risk, and immune function in special populations (elderly, obese, diabetic and HIV patients) are also addressed.

  • Authored by a team of highly experienced experts.
  • The “J-shaped” relationship between exercise load and infection risk is described, backed by current research and evidence.
