neuropathology and pathogenesis of brain damage, head injury, brain ischemia, and cerebral edema with some speculative chapters on potential for treatment.
Movement Disorders 2
Edited by C. David Marsden and Stanley Fahn
London, Buttenuorths, 1987
468 pp, illustrated, $45.00
This useful 22-chapter book is everything the thoughtful
neurologist hopes for in a focused volume. Advances in research are put to the test of improvements in diagnosis and
treatment by the assorted authors, and the steady hands of
the editors are always apparent. Subjects include parkinsonism and allied diseases and the dyskinesias, including essential tremor. It deserves our shortest review: buy it.
The Neuro-Immune-Endocrine Connection
Edited by Carl W. Cotman, Roberta E . Brinton,
Albert Galaburdz, Bruce McEwen, and Diana M. Schneider
New York, Raven. 1987
150 pp, illustrated, $45.00
Based on a 1985 meeting held in New York, this volume is
directed primarily toward the relationship of the neuroimmune-endocrine connection to development. Most of the
book concerns fundamental studies, many in vitro; nevertheless, occasional long leaps of imagination are made in an
effort to establish clinical relevance. How successful these
are would appear to depend somewhat upon the reader’s
point of view.
Neurosurgery-The Scientific Basis of Clinical Practice
Edited by Alan crockard, Riihard Hayward,
and J~ilianT . Hofi
Oxford, Blackwell, 1985
647 pp, illustrated
In 5 sections the authors cover basic neurosciences, functions
of the brain, maintenance of brain function, response of the
nervous system to disease, and investigations. Authors of the
individual chapters were carefully chosen and many have
backgrounds in fundamental neuroscience rather than clinical neurosurgery. Even orthopedists, urologists, and neurochemists have been drawn into the net. The result is a nurnber of chapters that will be of interest to neurologists and
neurosurgeons alike, particularly since the book primarily
emphasizes scientific process rather than technical therapy.
The Physiology and Pathophysiology of the
Cerebrospinal Fluid
By Hugh Davson, Keasley Welch, and Malcolm B. Segal
New York. Livingstone, I987
1013 pp. illustrateil! $198.00
D r Davson has received well-deserved fame for his earlier
volumes on the cerebrospinal fluid, the most recent of
which, prior to this book, was in 1967. Bioscience has done
106 Annals of Neurology
Vol 24 No 1 July 1988
much in the last 20 years and, judging by this treatise, Davson and his co-authors have achieved remarkable success in
distilling, condensing, and translating into understandable
prose many of the advances that have taken place. Back in
the days when textbooks or focused monographs were regarded by their authors as expressions of their art, a reviewer
would look at this as the appropriate masterpiece of a long
and productive career in the author’s specialty. I see no reason to change that view. The bibliography dates to 1083 but
it does not neglect the enduring, well-established classics of
the past. The contents range from fundamental physiology of
secretion, solute concentrations, acid-base balance and drainage to consider edema, macromolecules, comparative physiology, and the various altered CSF pressure syndromes, including hydrocephalus. While the rate of change in scientific
research may not allow this fine book to lead the pack for
another 20 years, it certainly is the reference to have on the
cerebrospinal fluid at this point. The 10‘) pages of bibliography alone almost justify the high price.
Progress i n Neuropathology, Vol 6
Edited by Harry M. Zimmerman
New York, Raven, 1986
304 pp, illustrated, $89.50
The authors describe various neuropathological reactions in
diseases within 15 chapters that vary from fatal catatonia to
experimental allergic encephalomyelitis. The volume should
be primarily of interest to those interested in classical neuropathology.
Quantitative Examination of Neurologic Functions,
Vols I and I1
By Alfed R. Potvin and Wallace W . Tourtellotte
Boca Ratan, CRC, 1985
Vol I : 247 pp; Vol. 2: 205 pp, illustrated
The authors have pioneered efforts to make the clinical appraisal of patients with neurological disorders quantitative
with an emphasis on providing measures that will indicate
progression of disease or response to therapy. The book
does not make for easy reading but it is valuable for anyone
planning clinical trials. The approach is primarily directed
toward sensory and motor disorders.
Sleep and Its Disorders in Children
Edited by Christian Guilleminault
New York, Raven, 1987
31 6 pp, illustrated, $36.50
Sleep and Its Disorders in Children is a collection of individual
essays describing a number of different problems with no
special effort to tie the material together in the form of a
textbook. Two major sections describe normative data and
population surveys about sleep in infants and children as well
as pathology and sleep. The latter directs attention toward
disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep, such as excessive sleepiness, parasomnias, and sleep in the brain-in jured
child, including those who have epilepsy.
