"Elsevier's Analytical Services and Global Academic Relations teams worked to examine trends in brain and neuroscience research from 2009 - 2013. The report focuses on brain science research output on a national level, levels of collaboration within brain research, cross-disciplinary researcher mobility, and emerging trends and themes in brain research. Experts from around the world were consulted for interviews on developments in brain science research. To generate this report, Elsevier's Analytical Services identified a set of relevant and specific neuroscience concepts and terms, defined as a semantic fingerprint. We then applied this semantic fingerprint to the Scopus database to identify all published articles related to brain and neuroscience research. The resulting set of articles was then analyzed to describe the state of brain and neuroscience research, in terms of research output, impact, collaboration, and quality, as well as the extent of cross-disciplinary research, emerging and highly active areas of research, and the state of research funding. Members of the Global Academic Relations team conducted interviews with leaders in brain science around the world, whose responses are included in the report." -- Editor.

The brain is omnipresent in bodily functions. Its vast array of responsibilities includes the regulation of all physical movements, memory, learning and emotions, as well as the reception and interpretation of all sensory inputs. These numerous responsibilities require the facility of a very complex organ, and the brain is complex, to say the least. The brain's complexity provides a constant challenge for scientists to explore new theories. Because of the brain's wide-ranging role in bodily functions these studies have an impact on many other realms of science, such as psychology, neurology, and genetics. This book features recent studies from this important field of scientific research.

There are two types of brain tumours: primary brain tumours that originate in the brain and metastatic (secondary) brain tumours that originate from cancer cells that have migrated from other parts of the body. Primary brain cancer rarely spreads beyond the central nervous system, and death results from uncontrolled tumour growth within the limited space of the skull. Metastatic brain cancer indicates advanced disease and has a poor prognosis. Primary brain tumours can be cancerous or non-cancerous. Both types take up space in the brain and may cause serious symptoms (e.g., vision or hearing loss) and complications (e.g., stroke). All cancerous brain tumours are life threatening (malignant) because they have an aggressive and invasive nature. A non-cancerous primary brain tumour is life threatening when it compromises vital structures (e.g., an artery). This book brings together the leading research in this dynamic area of research.

This book focuses on advances in imaging and mapping strategies to study the brain's structure, function and the relationship between both, from the whole brain to the molecular and cellular tissue level in order to improve the understanding of normal and disease processes. Studies of intact living organisms may be at the human, animal, cellular or molecular level, which advance our understanding of biological events in living systems and how these events relate to normal and pathological processes. Imaging modalities include nuclear medicine techniques (SPECT and PET) and non-nuclear techniques such as MRI, MRS, CT, ultrasound, intravital microscopy, optical imaging, diffuse optical tomography, electromagnetic tomography and other methods which elucidate molecular and cellular mechanisms, accelerate the understanding of biology, test the efficacy of therapeutic interventions in intact living systems and assess the therapeutic outcomes.

Cancer is a group of different diseases (over 100) characterised by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Cancer can arise in many sites and behave differently depending on its organ of origin. If a cancer spreads (metastasises), the new tumour bears the same name as the original (primary) tumour. Significant progress has been made in recent years in the battle against cancer and in understanding its underlying biological mechanisms. This research progress has resulted in many experimental treatments and cures which establish hope for wide-spread cures. This book brings together important research from around the world in this frontal field.

This new and significant book concentrates on brain mapping which is a set of neuroscience techniques predicated on the mapping of (biological) quantities or properties onto spatial representations of the (human or non-human) brain resulting in maps. All neuroimaging can be considered part of brain mapping. Brain mapping can be conceived as a higher form of neuroimaging, producing brain images supplemented by the result of additional (imaging or non-imaging) data processing or analysis, such as maps projecting (measures of) behaviour onto brain regions (see fMRI). Brain mapping techniques are constantly evolving, and rely on the development and refinement of image acquisition, representation, analysis, visualisation and interpretation techniques. Functional and structural neuroimaging are at the core of the mapping aspect of brain mapping.

This book presents an interdisciplinary approach to the question of how observer-participant perspectives are generated, what constrains them and how they may be modified. These questions are of vital importance and must be addressed in any discipline before formulating a hypothesis or designing a model about reality. Both epistemological questions about the nature of temporal nested structures and practical applications of our ability to contextualize are discussed. The resulting temporal observer-participant perspectives reflect approaches to the concept of simultaneity from the viewpoints of philosophers, logicians, cyberneticists and systems theorists, mathematicians, psychologists, medical practitioners, physicists, educationists, economists and musicologists. Although the main focus is on the cognitive sciences, as constraints to observer perspectives arise primarily from this field, the book will appeal to researchers of all disciplines and interested layman readers.

Epilepsy, also called seizure disorder, is a condition of the brain marked by a susceptibility to recurrent seizures. Epilepsy affects 1 per cent to 2 per cent of the population. In about half the cases of epilepsy, the cause is unknown. However, some possible causes of epilepsy include: birth trauma, perinatal infection, anoxia, infectious diseases, ingestion of toxins, tumours of the brain, inherited disorders or degenerative disease, head injury or trauma, metabolic disorders, cerebrovascular accident and alcohol withdrawal. This volume presents international research on the prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.

Psychoneuroendocrinology is the clinical study of hormone fluctuations and their relationship to human behaviour. It may be viewed from the perspective of psychiatry, where in certain mood disorders, there are associated neuroendocrine or hormonal changes. It may also be viewed from the perspective of endocrinology, where certain endocrine disorders can be associated with psychiatric illness. It is the blend of psychiatry and endocrinology. This new book presents the latest research advances in the field.

Despite prodigious developments in the field of language assessment in the Middle East and the Pacific Rim, research and practice in these areas have been underrepresented in mainstream literature. This volume takes a fresh look at language assessment in these regions, and provides a unique overview of contemporary language assessment research. In compiling this book, the editors have tapped into the knowledge of language and educational assessment experts whose diversity of perspectives and experience has enriched the focus and scope of language and educational assessment in general, and the present volume in particular. The six ‘trends’ addressed in the 26 chapters that comprise this title consider such contemporary topics as data mining, in-class assessment, and washback. The contributors explore new approaches and techniques in language assessment including advances resulting from multidisciplinary collaboration with researchers in computer science, genetics, and neuroscience. The current trends and promising new directions identified in this volume and the research reported here suggest that researchers across the Middle East and the Pacific Rim are playing—and will continue to play—an important role in advancing the quality, utility, and fairness of language testing and assessment practices.

Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities. The most common form of dementia among older people is Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which involves the parts of the brain that control memory, thought and language. Age is the most important known risk factor for AD. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. AD is a slow disease, starting with mild memory loss and ending with severe brain damage. The course the disease takes and how fast changes occur vary from person to person. On average, AD patients live from 8 to 10 years after they are diagnosed, though the disease can last for as many as 20 years. Current research is aimed at understanding why AD occurs and who is at greatest risk for developing it, improving the accuracy of diagnosis and ability to identify who is at risk, developing, discovering and testing new treatments for behavioural problems in patients with AD. This book gathers state-of-the-art research from leading scientists throughout the world which offers important information on understanding the underlying causes and discovering the most effective treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.
