Author: Christopher Brand
Is human intelligence mainly a matter of IQ - the general "g" factor? What basically is g - a relatively simple psychological reality or a complex construction? The debate on intelligence and its social relevance is a topic that continues to spark much argument and discussion. This study addresses the main questions and controversies surrounding IQ. The author moves from the historical background of IQ studies to a discussion of current arguments and the implications of recent research studies.

|Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy (Hodder Arnold Publication)
Lowest new price: $180.95
Lowest used price: $223.82
List price: $98.50
Author: Stephen Paget
Principles of Cortocosteroid Therapy provides a thorough and systematic review of the clinical use of corticosteroids, a class of drugs whose potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions have placed them among the most widely used in medicine. However, these drugs have many serious side effects on many organ systems. Proper use requires a thorough understanding of their mechanism of action, clinical indications and adverse effects.
This book outlines in detail the use of corticosteroids in diseases that affect each organ system and follows with a thorough discussion of their side effects. It analyses the use of corticosteroids in pregnancy, neonates, childhood and adolescence, as well as covering special management issues such as pulse corticosteroid and medicolegal aspects.
Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy will be of major interest to medical students and residents. Medical students will find it especially useful during their training in pharmacology and clinical medicine and it will be an indispensable text to residents in internal medicine and all its subspecialties. Doctors in many fields of medicine, especially internal medicine, will find it immensely valuable in the daily management of their patients.
Written by internationally recognized clinicians in internal medicine, immunology, rheumatology and other fields of medicine. Principles of Cortocosteroid Therapy is the first comprehensive and authoritative text to discuss the clinical use of cortocosteroids.
|Hypospadias and Genital Development (Advances in Experimental Medicine & Biology)
Lowest new price: $65.53
Lowest used price: $23.07
List price: $199.00
This book focuses on the current basic science research of hypospadias and genital development. Congenital anomalies of the genitalia are the second most common birth abnormality besides congenital heart defects. Genital anomalies come in many varieties with the most common abnormality being hypospadias. The etiology of hypospadias remains unknown and the incidence is doubling in western countries with no definable explanation. It therefore seems especially germane to study this common congenital anomaly with a baseline incidence of 1/125-250 newborn males.
|Central Regulation of Energy Metabolism With Special Reference To Circadian Rhythm

Author: Katsuya Nagai
Brand: Brand: CRC Press
This excellent book describes the roles of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus as a regulatory center of homeostatic mechanism and a circadian oscillator in mammals, including humans. The authors emphasize two important points based on their findings: 1) SCN plays a critical role in central regulation of energy metabolism through which a constant supply of glucose to the central nervous system (CNS) is well maintained; and 2) neurons responsible for the regulation of energy metabolism are located in the ventrolateral part of the SCN and receive retinal neural inputs through both the retinohypothalamic tract and the geniculohypothalamic tract. The authors then discuss the evolutionary importance of these points to the survival of mammals on earth. Other topics examined include the involvement of light in the regulation of neural activity of the autonomic nervous system through the retina and SCN, in addition to the relation of the SCN with regulations of other autonomic nerve functions, such as blood pressure and body temperature.
Central Regulation of Energy Metabolism with Special Reference to Circadian Rhythm is important reading for researchers and students in neuroendocrinologists, neurobiologists, biochemists, endocrinologists, physiologists, chronobiologists, psychologists, pharmacologists, and others interested in the topic.

Lowest new price: $63.03
Lowest used price: $14.31
List price: $320.00
This volume presents a state-of-the-art examination of the medical and surgical management of kidney stones. The opening section on the biophysical and biological bases of stone formation covers such topics as inhibitors and promoters of crystallization, crystal-crystal interactions, oxalate handling by renal cells, and intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus. A section on clinical and laboratory evaluation of urolithiasis addresses the analysis of stones, the epidemiology of urolithiasis, the stone-forming patient, laboratory evaluation of patients with urolithiasis, radiologic evaluation of patients with urolithiasis, and the pathophysiology of obstructive uropathy. A section on the surgical management of stones includes consideration of acute and chronic renal pain, percutaneous techniques for stone removal, interventional radiology for stone disease, and management of ureteral calculi. In a final section on medical and surgical management of specific stone types, international experts discuss such topics as primary hyperparathyroidism, renal tubular acidosis, and stones due to bowel disease. In this section, extensive consideration is given to both struvite and urate stones.
