Hearing Aids (Springer Handbook of Auditory Research) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

41cywzlrxel-_sx340_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319330349]

This volume will serve as the first Handbook of its kind in the area of hearing aid research, often the least-defined, least-understood, part of the multi-disciplinary research process. Most scientific training is very advanced within the particular disciplines but provides little opportunity for systematic introduction to the issues and obstacles that prevent effective hearing-aid related research. This area has emerged as one of critical importance, as signified by a single specialized meeting (the International Hearing Aid Conference, IHCON) that brings together specialists from the disparate disciplines involved, including both university and industry researchers. Identification of the key steps that enable high-impact basic science to ultimately result in significant clinical advances that improve patient outcome is critical. This volume will provide an overview of current key issues in hearing aid research from the perspective of many different disciplines, not only from the perspective of the key funding agencies, but also from the scientists and clinicians who are currently involved in hearing aid research. It will offer insight into the experience, current technology and future technology that can help improve hearing aids, as scientists and clinicians typically have little or no formal training over the whole range of the individual disciplines that are relevant. The selection and coverage of topics insures that it will have lasting impact, well beyond immediate, short-term, or parochial concerns.

Skin Stress Response Pathways: Environmental Factors and Molecular Opportunities 1st ed. 2016 Edition

41ah5zvz7ol-_sx330_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319431552]

It is now established that the interplay between environmental exposure and molecular stress response pathways plays a critical role in skin health and disease, and a refined mechanistic understanding of this phenomenon at the molecular level promises to open new avenues for targeted therapeutic strategies that may benefit patients in the near future. Coauthored by recognized international leaders in molecular and clinical biomedical sciences, this novel book provides a comprehensive perspective on environmental exposure-induced skin stress response pathways.  Focusing on molecular opportunities targeting skin stress response pathways that are involved in cutaneous barrier function and repair, antimicrobial defense, immune regulation, inflammation, and malignant progression, the book is essential reading for students, basic researchers, and biomedical health care professionals interested in skin health and disease with implications for small molecule therapeutic development.

New Insights on Antiviral Probiotics: From Research to Applications 1st ed. 2017 Edition

51gebbrp3cl-_sx340_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319496875]

This book focuses on probiotics with antiviral activities. The “antiviral probiotic” is a new concept in medical sciences. Recently, studies have shown that antiviral probiotics can fight or prevent viral infections in many ways. The immunomodulation of mucosal immunity, production of antiviral compounds, virus trapping and the use thereof as vaccination vectors are the principal modes of action of antiviral probiotics. The author dedicates an entire chapter of the book to discussing the methods and techniques used to assess the antiviral activity of probiotic strains and their metabolites.

Neuroeconomics (Studies in Neuroscience, Psychology and Behavioral Economics) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

41nvtkn8pll-_sx313_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3642359221]

This book represents one of the cornerstones of the series Studies in Neuroscience, Psychology and Behavioral Economics. It is divided into eight sections, starting with an introduction to neuroeconomics followed by an overview of frequently applied experimental paradigms (games) in neuroeconomics research. Furthermore, it addresses the molecular basis of human decision making, environmental/situational factors and social contexts influencing human decision making, as well as translational and developmental/clinical approaches to neuroeconomics. In closing, a paper on neuro-marketing demonstrates how knowledge from neuroeconomics research can be applied in “real life.” Culminating in an extensive methods section, in which eight different neuroscience techniques are introduced, the book offers an essential resource for researchers and practitioners, and may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Fundamentals of Modern Bioprocessing 1st Edition

51-xmpqaynl-_sx338_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1466585730]

Biological drug and vaccine manufacturing has quickly become one of the highest-value fields of bioprocess engineering, and many bioprocess engineers are now finding job opportunities that have traditionally gone to chemical engineers. Fundamentals of Modern Bioprocessing addresses this growing demand.

Written by experts well-established in the field, this book connects the principles and applications of bioprocessing engineering to healthcare product manufacturing and expands on areas of opportunity for qualified bioprocess engineers and students. The book is divided into two sections: the first half centers on the engineering fundamentals of bioprocessing; while the second half serves as a handbook offering advice and practical applications.

Focused on the fundamental principles at the core of this discipline, this work outlines every facet of design, component selection, and regulatory concerns. It discusses the purpose of bioprocessing (to produce products suitable for human use), describes the manufacturing technologies related to bioprocessing, and explores the rapid expansion of bioprocess engineering applications relevant to health care product manufacturing. It also considers the future of bioprocessing―the use of disposable components (which is the fastest growing area in the field of bioprocessing) to replace traditional stainless steel.

In addition, this text:

  • Discusses the many types of genetically modified organisms
  • Outlines laboratory techniques
  • Includes the most recent developments
  • Serves as a reference and contains an extensive bibliography
  • Emphasizes biological manufacturing using recombinant processing, which begins with creating a genetically modified organism using recombinant techniques

Fundamentals of Modern Bioprocessing outlines both the principles and applications of bioprocessing engineering related to healthcare product manufacturing. It lays out the basic concepts, definitions, methods and applications of bioprocessing. A single volume comprehensive reference developed to meet the needs of students with a bioprocessing background; it can also be used as a source for professionals in the field.
