BMA Medical Book Awards 2015: Highly Commended in the Neurology, British Medical Association

Aminoff's Neurology and General Medicine is the standard and classic reference providing comprehensive coverage of the relationship between neurologic practice and general medicine. As neurologists are asked to consult on general medical conditions, this reference provides an authoritative tool linking general medical conditions to specific neurologic issues and disorders. This is also a valuable tool for the general practitioner seeking to understand the neurologic aspects of their medical practice.

Completely revised with new chapters covering metastatic disease, bladder disease, psychogenic disorders, dementia, and pre-operative and post-operative care of patients with neurologic disorders, this new edition will again be the go-to reference for both neurologists and general practitioners.

  • The standard authoritative reference detailing the relationship between neurology and general medicine
  • 100% revised and updated with several new chapters
  • Well illustrated, with most illustrations in full color

Amniote Origins: Completing the Transition to Land

Identificadores:  ISBN 978-0-12-676460-4 (en línea)

Accesos/Suscripciones

Este recurso está disponible en las siguientes plataformas

Cobertura temática

Amniote Origins integrates modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes, and illustrates how studies of paleobiology can be illuminated by studies of neonatology. For this reason, comparative anatomists and physiologists, functional morphologists, zoologists, and paleontologists will all find this unique volume very useful. Inspired by the prospect of integrating fields that have long been isolated from one another, Amniote Origins provides a thorough and interdisciplinary synthesis of one of the classic transitions of evolutionary history.

Key Features
* Integrates modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes
* Illustrates how studies of paleobiology can be illuminated by studies of neonatology
* Provides a thorough and interdisciplinary synthesis of one of the classic transitions of evolutionary history

Cobertura temática

Amphioxus Immunity: Tracing the Origin of Human Immunity covers a remarkable range of information about Amphioxus and its evolutionary context. This compilation of what is currently known about Amphioxus, with a sharp focus on its immune system, includes 13 topics, such as:

  • Amphioxus as a model for understanding the evolution of vertebrates
  • basic knowledge of immunology
  • immune organs and cells of amphioxus
  • a genomic and transcriptomic view of the Amphioxus immunity
  • pattern recognition system in Amphioxus
  • transcription factors in Amphioxus
  • the complement system of Amphioxus
  • the oxidative burst system in Amphioxus
  • immune effectors in Amphioxus
  • lipid signaling of immune response in Amphioxus
  • apoptosis in amphioxus; primitive adaptive immune system of Amphioxus
  • and future research directions

This valuable reference book is loaded with information that will be useful for anyone who wishes to learn more about the origin of vertebrates and adaptive immunity.

  • Provides new evidence on the origin of the adaptive immune system, the evolution of innate immunity, and evolution-stage specific immune defense mechanisms
  • Not only presents the cells and molecules involved in the adaptive immune response in Amphioxus, but also characterizes the origination and evolution of the gene families and pathways involved in innate immunity
  • Includes much pioneering work, from the molecular, genomic, and cellular to the individual level

Cobertura temática

Extensively revised, updated and expanded, the fourth edition of this popular text provides a rigorous analytical treatment of modern energy conversion plant. Notable for both its theoretical and practical treatment of conventional and nuclear power plant, and its studies of refrigerating and gas-liquefaction plant. This fourth edition now includes material on topics of increasing concern in the fields of energy 'saving' and reduction of environmental pollution. This increased coverage deals specifically with the following areas: CHP (cogeneration) plant, studies of both gas and coal burning plant designed to reduce toxic emissions, and the study of PWR plant in the nuclear industry, which has been extended to cover conceptual designs aimed at greater inherent safety. With over 20 new sections plus new appendices and more problems this text not only retains its value but also enhances its usefulness to the reader, covering areas of current interest and importance.

Este recurso está disponible en las siguientes plataformas

Cobertura temática

This text provides an introductory outline of the analytical principles involved in appraising the efficiency of crop-fertilizer and livestock-feed response.


It provides students of both agricultural science and economics with a simple but formal exposition of the why, how and wherefore of the principles of crop and livestock analysis, thereby helping to further co-operative effort among biological and
economic researchers. The third edition has been updated and revised thoroughly. `The book is very nicely produced, easy to read, and free from errors and innacuracies...Dillon and Anderson's text is excellent value.' Outlook on Agriculture, 1990

Este recurso está disponible en las siguientes plataformas

Cobertura temática

In fuel cell research, the gap between fundamental electrochemical processes and the engineering of fuel cell systems is bridged by the physical modelling of fuel cells. This relatively new discipline aims to understand the basic transport and kinetic phenomena in a real cell and stack environment, paving the way for improved design and performance. The author brings his unique approach to the analytical modeling of fuel cells to this essential reference for energy technologists...
  • Covers recent advances and analytical solutions to a range of problems faced by energy technologists, from catalyst layer performance to thermal stability
  • Provides detailed graphs, charts and other tools (glossary, index) to maximize R&D output while minimizing costs and time spent on dead-end research
  • Presents Kulikovsky’s signature approach (and the data to support it)—which uses "simplified" models based on idealized systems, basic geometries, and minimal assumptions—enabling qualitative understanding of the causes and effects of phenomena

    Animal Vigilance: Monitoring Predators and Competitors

    Cobertura temática

    Animal Vigilance builds on the author’s previous publication with Academic Press (Social Predation: How Group Living Benefits Predators and Prey) by developing several other themes including the development and mechanisms underlying vigilance, as well as developing more fully the evolution and function of vigilance.

    Animal vigilance has been at the forefront of research on animal behavior for many years, but no comprehensive review of this topic has existed. Students of animal behavior have focused on many aspects of animal vigilance, from models of its adaptive value to empirical research in the laboratory and in the field. The vast literature on vigilance is widely dispersed with often little contact between models and empirical work and between researchers focusing on different taxa such as birds and mammals. Animal Vigilance fills this gap in the available material.

    • Tackles vigilance from all angles, theoretical and empirical, while including the broadest range of species to underscore unifying themes
    • Discusses several newer developments in the area, such as vigilance copying and effect of food density
    • Highlights recent challenges to assumptions of traditional models of vigilance, such as the assumption that vigilance is independent among group members, which is reviewed during discussion of synchronization and coordination of vigilance in a group
    • Written by a top expert in animal vigilance
