Dysfonction C r brovasculaire Dans Le Syndrome de Wernicke Korsakoff
Le syndrome de Wernicke-Korsakoff est un desordre neuropsychiatrique devastateur resultant d'une carence severe en thiamine, le plus souvent retrouve chez les alcooliques chroniques, et caracterise par des hemorragies cerebrales et une neurodegenerescence severe entrainant des symptomes de demence. La structure et la fonction cerebrovasculaire dans ce desordre est severement compromise, et ce de facon precoce, et le present ouvrage demontre la presence d'alterations critiques au niveau de la barriere hemato-encephalique dans un modele animal de la pathologie. De plus, cet ouvrage demontre les mecanismes moleculaires cles responsables de ces lesions, en particulier le role central du stress oxydatif au niveau de l'endothelium vasculaire cerebral. Cet ouvrage met de l'emphase sur le role critique de la dysfonction cerebrovasculaire dans le processus de neurodegenerescence, et propose de nouvelles avenues therapeutiques visant a preserver l'integrite cerebrovasculaire et ainsi a prevenir ou a limiter les sequelles cerebrales dans le syndrome de Wernicke-Korsakoff ainsi que dans d'autres desordres neurodegeneratifs ou l'integrite cerebrovasculaire est severement compromise.

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat
With an introduction by Will Self A classic work of psychology, this international bestseller provides a groundbreaking insight into the human mind. If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self - himself - he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it. In this extraordinary book, Dr. Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities; who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded, yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human. A provocative exploration of the mysteries of the human mind, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a million-copy bestseller by the twentieth century's greatest neurologist.
ICPC 2 R
This fully revised and corrected edition of the International Classification of Primary Care 2e (ICPC-2) is indispensable for anyone wishing to use the international classification system for classificaton of morbidity data in a primary care setting. The concept of ICPC-2 has not been changed but the main body of the actual classification (chapter 10) has been completely revised to reflect the adequate use for an individual patient record and for research purposes. This now brings the printed version of ICPC-2 completely in-line with the electronic version previously only available through the Oxford Website for the journal Family Practice. ICPC-2 is patient-oriented rather than disease or provider-oriented. It encompasses both the patient's reason for encounter and the patient's problem. ICPC-2 is extensively used internationally and includes a detailed conversion system for linking the ICPC and ICD-10 codes published by WHO, additional inclusion criteria, and cross-referencing rubrics. ICPC-2 It has been developed based on the recognition that building the appropriate primary care systems to allow the assessment and implementation of health care priorities is possible only if the right information is available to health care planners.

The Ghost Riders of Ordebec
‘People will die,’ says the panic-stricken woman outside police headquarters. She refuses to speak to anyone besides Commissaire Adamsberg. Her daughter has seen a vision: ghostly horsemen who target the most nefarious characters in Normandy. Since the middle ages there have been stories of murderers, rapists, those with serious crimes on their conscience, meeting a grisly end following a visitation by the riders. Soon after the young woman’s vision a notoriously vicious and cruel man disappears. Although the case is far outside his jurisdiction, Adamsberg agrees to investigate the strange happenings in a village terrorised by wild rumours and ancient feuds.

Enriched and Impoverished Environments
Enriched and Impoverished Environments: Effects on Brain and Behaviour is the most recent review of the active area of neuronal plasticity. The question of how experience is recorded is fundamental to psychology; speculations and investigations concerning the role of the brain in this process have entered a particularly exciting phase as of the late 1980's. Manipulations of environmental complexity is one of the earliest methods utilized in the study of neural plasticity. This monograph organizes the evidence to date concerning the responsiveness of neural and behavioural systems to external manipulation of the environment. Further consideration is given to the issues of causation of the general effects of environment on brain and behaviour.
