Thoroughly revised and updated by internationally recognized experts, the Third Edition of this popular and widely used atlas reflects twelve years of vital advances in electrodiagnosis of neurologic function in neonates. The authors have distilled the vast, complex literature on neonatal EEG to provide a practical, contemporary, superbly illustrated guide to performing EEG in neonates and interpreting both common and unusual patterns.
This edition includes digital as well as analog EEG and features over 200 brand-new, full-sized reproductions of EEG tracings. The authors demonstrate state-of-the-art improvements in recording technique and highlight recent advances in the understanding of normal and abnormal brain development.
Although Epilepsy in children is often considered as a benign condition with possible recovery in adolescence, most cases are accompanied by serious disturbances of the cognitive functions. Epileptics encephalopathies represent the most dramatic section of paediatric neurology. In most cases, children develop severe frequent polymorphic seizures, permanent extended epileptiform activity on the electroencephalogram and severe disturbances of higher mental functions. In some patients, seizures may be absent but severe cognitive, behaviour and speech disturbances develop in any case. This book, written by Russian experts in the aforementioned field, is devoted to those epileptic encephalopathies when epilepsy itself is the major cause of psychomotor retardation in children. It summarises current data from the world-wide literature and authors' long experience of practical work with patients suffering from epileptic encephalopathies. Each chapter includes a clear definition of the syndrome, its historical background, information about aetiology and pathogenesis. Maximal attention is paid to the semiology of epileptic seizures, EEG and neuroimaging data. Diagnostic criteria and differential diagnosis are presented in detail. Many sections are illustrated with histories and photos of patients with rare diseases, examples of typical changes in EEG and MRI. And of course, the treatment is provided for all forms of epileptic encephalopathies.
Based on the teachings of Jesus and a biblical foundation, this book presents a new framework for education and teaching, referred to as the shalom education model, that addresses four essential questions in education (why teach, what to teach, how to teach and who are teachers?) After explaining the theoretical background of shalom, the book investigates a range of contemporary educational issues including gender identity, bullying, disability, linguistic and cultural diversity, and social justice, and presents practical guidelines that can be applied to classroom teaching. The book also emphasizes the role of teachers as missional leaders who help students unlock their full potential.
