Machine Learning is an area of artificial intelligence involving the development of algorithms to discover trends and patterns in existing data; this information can then be used to make predictions on new data. A growing number of researchers and clinicians are using machine learning methods to develop and validate tools for assisting the diagnosis and treatment of patients with brain disorders. Machine Learning: Methods and Applications to Brain Disorders provides an up-to-date overview of how these methods can be applied to brain disorders, including both psychiatric and neurological disease. This book is written for a non-technical audience, such as neuroscientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists and health care practitioners. Provides a non-technical introduction to machine learning and applications to brain disorders Includes a detailed description of the most commonly used machine learning algorithms as well as some novel and promising approaches Covers the main methodological challenges in the application of machine learning to brain disorders Provides a step-by-step tutorial for implementing a machine learning pipeline to neuroimaging data in Python

This book has brought together leading investigators who work in the new arena of brain connectomics. This includes ‘macro-connectome’ efforts to comprehensively chart long-distance pathways and functional networks; ‘micro-connectome’ efforts to identify every neuron, axon, dendrite, synapse, and glial process within restricted brain regions; and ‘meso-connectome’ efforts to systematically map both local and long-distance connections using anatomical tracers. This book highlights cutting-edge methods that can accelerate progress in elucidating static ‘hard-wired’ circuits of the brain as well as dynamic interactions that are vital for brain function. The power of connectomic approaches in characterizing abnormal circuits in the many brain disorders that afflict humankind is considered. Experts in computational neuroscience and network theory provide perspectives needed for synthesizing across different scales in space and time. Altogether, this book provides an integrated view of the challenges and opportunities in deciphering brain circuits in health and disease.

An introduction to Neuroimaging and Neurophysiology in Psychiatry, this book explains the basic physics and physiology behind the main techniques of neuroimaging, including MRI and PET, and non-invasive neurophysiology. This title covers all the clinically relevant aspects of neuroimaging and neurophysiology methods. It includes individual chapters on techniques, diagnostic disease markers, and neurophysiological treatments to ensure psychiatrists are familiar with the clinical relevance of reported abnormalities. With the latest research, Neuroimaging and Neurophysiology in Psychiatry is an invaluable and easy-to-read reference that will help practising psychiatrists in the evaluation of the use of neuroimaging methods in clinical, research, and forensic settings.

Mary Lincoln is a lightning rod for controversy. Stories reveal widely different interpretations, and it is impossible to write a definitive version of her life that will suit everyone. The thirteen engaging essays in this collection introduce Mary Lincoln’s complex nature and show how she is viewed today. The authors’ explanations of her personal and private image stem from a variety of backgrounds, and through these lenses—history, theater, graphic arts, and psychiatry—they present their latest research and assessments. Here they reveal the effects of familial culture and society on her life and give a broader assessment of Mary Lincoln as a woman, wife, and mother. Topics include Mary’s childhood in Kentucky, the early years of her marriage to Abraham, Mary’s love of travel and fashion, the presidential couple’s political partnership, and Mary’s relationship with her son Robert. The fascinating epilogue meditates on Mary Lincoln’s universal appeal and her enigmatic personality, showcasing the dramatic differences in interpretations. With gripping prose and in-depth documentation, this anthology will capture the imagination of all readers. Univeristy Press Books for Public and Secondary Schools 2013 edition

The pathological behavior of a modern man is indebted to the complexity of various environmental encounters acting as unspoken, disconcerting even trivial events of day to day life. Each one of us is exposed to such psychic and socio-cultural strains which are inherent in the particular environments and will sooner or later succumb to the need to fidget and to perform small trivial acts, displaced from usual functional context and injected into quite alien behavior sequences, in an attempt to avoid behavioral stalemates of contradictory urges. It was surprising when somebody had said: such and such garments make me uneasy and sick or I feel completely relaxed with certain blend of Garments. We wanted to make sure, if these influences have lasting maturational influences on the body systems. Because an overload of stress, which may arrive as a big chunk or in a series of small bits, may be a Physical source of insult i.e. accidental trauma, malnutrition, disturbed sleep or Psychological i.e., disturbed family, life, loss of a job, personal insecurity etc. But the more appropriate definition of a stressor is given in the most recent literature. A stressor could be an environmental source, in more scientific words "Extroceptive" i.e., natural calamities, chronic occupational stress, over crowding, territorial conflicts, imposition of stressful behavioral task, etc. This could also be a naturally evoked "Agonistic" behavioral response, such as resulting from confrontation with an attacking animal or an on-rushing car. But the more complex behavioral response of an individual is observed in response to activation of the cutaneous receptors, due to Noxious or Nociceptive Stress. Initially, only painful stimuli were attributed to have such influences. But later scientists used loud noise and noxious cold stimulation and produced similar behavioral responses. Our experience with the Synthetic Blend of Garments showed similar behavioral reactions. We wanted to confirm the local static, thermal and mechanical influences instigated due poor sweat absorption of the Synthetic Blend of Garments could really produce nociceptive type of behavioral responses.

Relying upon the best-selling third edition of Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology, Dr Stephen M. Stahl has revised chapters covering depression and bipolar disorder for this edition. Significantly revised and expanded it is essential for professionals treating depression and students needing a straight forward illustrated guide to drug mechanism and current research. It includes advances in neurobiology and recent clinical developments to explain with renewed clarity clinical advances in antidepressant therapy and includes new coverage of sleep disorders and disorders of impulse control. The fully revised text is complemented by many new illustrations and enhanced to reflect new knowledge and topics not covered in the previous edition. More than one-third longer than the previous edition, it is essential reading for professionals treating psychosis and students learning the mechanisms of drug reactions. Intended as a primer text covering all aspects of treatment for psychosis and related conditions, this concise volume can nevertheless be read cover to cover by experts and novices alike.

Professor Bencion Kampos expresses his thoughts on man's existence in both the material and spiritual worlds. He uses logical reasoning along with scientific analysis to answer the age-old question of "why we are here" and "where we are going" afterwards. Combining intuition and a creative mind to support his theory, Kampos shows us there is a reason for everything that happens in life, highlighting the role that destiny plays in the process.
