Hardly a week goes by without a news story about brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and stroke. General readers who are regularly exposed to information about the brain and brain disorders will appreciate this accessible reference from a medical writer. Containing more than 800 clear, concise entries, the volume also includes three directories (of self-help, professional and governmental organizations), a glossary, and an extensive list of references. An index facilitates access to the wide range of terms that are covered. The first edition, called The Brain Encyclopedia, was published in 1996.
Entries treat Aging and the brain, Brain scans, Circadian rhythm, Down syndrome, Friedreich's ataxia, Mapping the brain, Narcolepsy, Postconcussion syndrome, and Slow viruses of the brain, to name just a few topics. The introduction notes that almost every entry has been revised, many with extensive updates. Among the new entries are Ecstasy (MDMA), Mad cow disease, Multiple intelligences, Neurological manifestation of AIDS, Shaken baby syndrome, and entries for each of the four drugs approved to treat Alzheimer's disease. Students interested in the brain and brain disorders will find much of interest here--information on the causes, cures, key research, symptoms, treatments, and trends of each field of study. The Encyclopedia of the Brain and Brain Disorders is useful for brief definitions of terms and ready-reference questions. Lay readers and students will undoubtedly appreciate the jargon-free language. RBB
