The Handbook of Clinical Neurology volume on traumatic brain injury (TBI) provides the reader with an updated review of emerging approaches to traumatic brain injury (TBI) research, clinical management and rehabilitation of the traumatic brain injury patient. Chapters in this volume range from epidemiology and pathological mechanisms of injury, and neuroprotection to long-term outcomes with a strong emphasis on current neurobiological approaches to describing the consequences and mechanisms of recovery from TBI. The book presents contemporary investigations on blast injury and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, making this state-of-the-art volume a must have for clinicians and researchers concerned with the clinical management, or investigation, of TBI. Internationally renowned scientists describe cutting edge research on the neurobiological response to traumatic brain injury, including descriptions of potential biomarkers and indicators of potential targets for treatments to reduce the impact of the injury Explores cellular and molecular mechanisms as well as genetic predictors of outcome Offers coverage of various diagnostic tools - CT, MRI, DDTI, fMRI, EEG, resting functional imaging, and more State-of-the-art traumatic brain injury management and treatment principles are presented for both civilian and military careHandbook of Clinical Neurology (Series Editors: Aminoff, Boller and Swaab) Jordan Grafman, Andres M.
