Tinnitus A multidisciplinary approach

Tinnitus A multidisciplinary approach
Clinicians and researchers who accept the challenge of helping patients suffering from
tinnitus must be prepared to implement management strategies that are as varied and
diverse as the population they serve. The notorious abundance of tinnitus ‘cures’ suggests that there are (at least) as many tinnitus causes, triggers and mechanisms. It will probably always be the case that no one-size-fits-all approach to tinnitus management will succeed, but it is equally likely that a variety of interventions may, in many cases, produce some amelioration of the patient’s distress. Most researchers and practising clinicians report that a combination of sound therapy and counselling facilitates the patient’s ability to manage the tinnitus experience.

Computational Analysis Of The Human

Computational Analysis Of The Human
The human visual system, from photoreceptors to higher-order processing of signals in the brain, is a remarkable example of the power of evolutionary processes acting over vast periods to develop a finely tuned system capable of complex recognition, recall, and execution of highly accurate tasks in space and time. In terms of genetics, physiology, and structure, the evolutionary pathway to higher vertebrate vision can be traced.1 In fact, it has been hypothesized that the development of a complex visual system preceded and provided the evolutionary substrate for the evolution of brain expansion that made possible higher cognitive functions in primates. Vertebrate vision is one of the most profound and illuminating examples illustrating the operation of evolutionary principles.

Acute Side Effects of Radiation Therapy

Acute Side Effects of Radiation Therapy
Dichotomies in medicine are common, but it is nowhere more clearly demonstrated than in radiation exposure either used in diagnoses or in treatment as compared to excessive or unwanted radiation exposure either locally or systematically. Other
dichotomies demonstrated in radiation injury include the separation between acute
and late radiation damage, locally applied as contrasted to systemic or total body
exposure, one or few radiation exposures vs. fractionated radiation exposures, and
use of preventive or ameliorating agents applied before exposure in contrast to postexposure treatments. All of these are important to our understanding of the effective, appropriate use of radiation as a treatment modality. This can only be ameliorated by accurate information about the causes, frequency, severity, and prevention or treatment of these radiation-associated conditions.

Neuropsychological Evaluation of Somatoform and Other Functional Somatic Conditions

Neuropsychological Evaluation of Somatoform and Other Functional Somatic Conditions
I remember as a graduate psychology student, and then as a neuropsychology postdoctoral fellow, being puzzled by somatoform presentations, particularly those involving conversion disorder. I recall wondering as I witnessed a psychogenic non-epileptic seizure patient displaying a “seizure, ” “What is this person thinking? What is going through his mind?” I viewed myself as a logical person who behaved in what I thought were rational ways, and the idea that a person could create physical symptoms that were not “real” at a less than conscious level seemed mysterious, fantastical, and contrary to our prized human intellect. Over the intervening three decades as a psychologist and neuropsychologist, my understanding of somatoform disorders felt incomplete and unsatisfactory. In working on this book, I finally had the opportunity to immerse myself in the rich literature on the genesis of “nonconscious” behaviors and how these might apply to symptom creation.

Field Guide To The Arrhythmias
If the innocent or uninitiated were to wander through the cardiac unit, telemetry unit, or in fact through any unit where ECG monitoring is in use (we will stick with the English ElectroCardioGram spelling), he or she would likely encounter rhythms which were un familiar. It is even possible such rhythms might be rudely thrust into one’s face with a request to evaluate them or even take drastic action: “Should I shock him?” or “Do you think this is Mobitz I second degree exit block?” In fact, traveling through a unit in such fashion may be likened to a wanderer strolling through a forest, unsure of the names of the trees or wildflowers, or the significance of certain tracks.

International Perspectives on Psychotherapy

International Perspectives on Psychotherapy
Witmer, who later became one of the cofounders of the American Psychological Association, thought that the goal of clinical psychology should be similar to that of medicine to improve the human condition. This notion signiicantly expanded the boundaries of the young discipline, which was primarily deined by experimental psychology to simply study the nature of psychological phenomena, Despite the early call for intervention and prevention of human suffering, training in clinical psychology primarily focused on psychological assessments during the irst half of the twentieth century. The emphasis shifted more toward intervention after World , when there was a greater need for clinicians.

Integrating Psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology
Integrating Psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology a Handbook for Clinicians is a practical
guide for the growing number of mental health practitioners searching for information on
treatments that combine psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and psychosocial rehabilitation.
Research shows that combined approaches are among the most effective ways to treat an increasing number of psychiatric disorders. However, though these combined treatments are becoming the everyday practice of psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals, identifying the right treatment plan can be notoriously diffi cult, and clinicians are often left scrambling to answer questions about how to design and customize their treatment strategies.

Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Chronic Respiratory Diseases
As populations age, the prevalence of chronic respiratory conditions increases steadily. Further, recent advances in various health-related fields have been extending human longevity. Undoubtedly, chronic medical conditions, with no exception for chronic respiratory conditions, affect quality of life negatively and result in various psychiatric conditions including depression and anxiety. Thus, as the prevalence of chronic medical conditions increases, the prevalence of associated psychiatric conditions increases too. In this book, we aim at evaluating various chronic respiratory conditions associated with psychiatric comorbidities and explore the management options available.

Burnout, Fatigue, Exhaustion
Our age, it seems, is the age of exhaustion. The prevalence of exhaustion both as an individual experience and as a broader socio-cultural phenomenon – is manifest in the epidemic rise of burnout, depression, and chronic fatigue. It is equally present in a growing disenchantment with capitalism in its current neo-liberal form, in concerns about the psycho-social repercussions of ever-faster information and communication technologies, in a general distrust in grand narratives, and in anxieties about ecological ustainability.

Nanomedicine for Cancer Therapy

Nanomedicine for Cancer Therapy
The aim of this book is to provide an overview of cancer therapies from conventional to nanomedicine based modern-day therapy. The initial part of the book discussed the conventional therapy and multiple drug resistance mechanisms. The conventional treatments have several limitations like nonspecific delivery, toxicity stability and multiple drug resistance by cancer cells. Among all, multiple drug resistance is a major concern for drug delivery and therapy for cancer. To overcome this, nanomedicine or drug delivery through small carrier known as nanoparticles based therapy came into existence.

Anxiety Disorders A Guide for Integrating Psychopharmacology and Psychotherapy ANXIETY
Treatment of the anxiety disorders over the past century has reflected an implicit artesian dualism. Early conceptualizations of psychopathology dominated by psychoanalytic theory posited the primacy of a variety of unconscious impulses and conflicts, ecessitating a psychodynamic approach to treatment that at times seemed to belie the patients’ esentation and experience.
