Textbook of Neural Repair and Rehabilitation: Volume 1, 2nd edition Preface

Neurorehabilitation is a medical specialty that is growing rapidly because medical advances have extended life expectancy and saved the lives of persons who previously would not have survived neurological injury. It is now urgent to develop a rigorous scientific basis for the field. The basic science relevant to functional recovery from neural injury is perhaps the most exciting and compelling of all the medical sciences.

It encompasses areas of plasticity, regeneration, and transplantation in the nervous system that individually have been the subjects of many monographs. With the Textbook of Neural Repair and Rehabilitation, these areas are integrated with each other and with the clinical topics to which they apply.

The Textbook of Neural Repair and Rehabilitation is organized into two volumes. Volume I: Neural Repair and Plasticity can stand alone as a textbook for graduate- or advanced undergraduate-level courses on recovery from neural injury. Following an injury to the nervous system, most patients partially regain function, but this is very incomplete. Volume I is subdivided into seven sections covering areas of physiological and anatomical plasticity in the normal and injured nervous system, the determinants of regeneration and therapeutic approaches to
restore connectivity and function after neural injury. Chapters cover the anatomical and physiologic responses of neurons to injury, mechanisms of learning and memory, and plasticity in specific areas of the nervous system consequent to intense use, disuse and injury.

Ultimately, interventions aimed at repairing the damaged neural circuitry will be required if full function is to be
restored. Thus chapters also cover topics on neuronal death, trophic factors, axonal regeneration and the molecules that inhibit it, stem cell biology, and cell transplantation. Compared with the first edition, greater emphasis has been placed on gene and cell based therapies and on intracellular signalling. Section 7 is devoted to translational research applied to human neural injury.

Volume II: Medical Neurorehabilitation can stand alone as a clinical handbook for physicians, therapists, rehabilitation nurses, and other neurorehabilitation professionals. It too is organized into seven sections. The first two cover the diagnostic and therapeutic technology of neurorehabilitation and constitute a direct transition from Volume I, emphasizing the applications of basic scientific principles to the practice of neurorehabilitation. Included are new chapters on the design of clinical trials in neurorehabilitation, requirements for valid
clinical trials in regenerative therapies, expanded coverage of gene, cell transplantation, and brain stimulation therapies, as well as functional imaging, motor control, gait and balance assessment, electrodiagnosis, virtual reality, and bioengineering and robotic applications to prosthetics and orthotics.

The second section includes chapters on the organization of neurorehabilitation services, including a new chapter on
rehabilitation during the acute phase of injury. Sections 4–6 cover symptom-specific approaches to neurorehabilitation, including sensory, motor, autonomic, vegetative, and cognitive functions. This includes a new chapter on disorders of consciousness. Section 7 includes 9 chapters on comprehensive approaches to the rehabilitation of persons suffering from the major categories of disabling neurologic disorders, such as spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Wherever possible, the chapters in this book refer the reader back to chapters that deal with relevant material at a
different level. However, in the second edition, the level of truly interactive content between basic laboratory and clinical science is vastly increased compared to the first edition. It is hoped that, by stressing the integration of clinical and basic scientific knowledge, this book is helping to advance the quality and scientific rigor of neurorehabilitation….
