Negli ultimi due decenni la ricerca neurologica italiana ha avuto un notevole sviluppo contribuendo considerevolmente alla crescita culturale della Neurologia mondiale. Il Manuale è stato scritto dai neurologi dell’Università Sapienza di Roma, esperti nei diversi settori della Neurologia. Particolare attenzione è stata dedicata agli aspetti diagnostici, clinici e terapeutici delle diverse malattie neurologiche segnalando anche i recenti avanzamenti scientifici. I curatori hanno favorito la coerenza stilistica e l’uniformità nell’approccio alla materia con lo scopo di fornire uno strumento di conoscenza e di consultazione agile ed efficace. Il volume è costituito da 32 capitoli (su argomenti di Neurologia, Neuroradiologia e Neurochirurgia), compresi un capitolo sulla Neuroriabilitazione, uno sulla Neurologia Infantile e uno sui Principi di Psichiatria. Riteniamo che gli ultimi tre capitoli, pur nella loro diversità, siano essenziali per una migliore e completa conoscenza della Neurologia. Il Manuale resta, comunque, uno strumento utile essenzialmente allo studente di Medicina, compresi gli studenti delle Professioni sanitarie. Il massimo spazio è stato dedicato, infatti, ai sintomi di possibile origine neurologica che si incontrano nella pratica clinica generale ed alle patologie neurologiche che il clinico dovrebbe conoscere. Desideriamo ringraziare per la loro dedizione e professionalità tutti gli Autori che han- no contribuito alla stesura del manuale. Sentiamo di voler rivolgere un ringraziamento particolare al Prof. Mario Manfredi per aver contribuito con la stesura del capitolo sui Nervi cranici e per averci concesso la possibilità di utilizzare molte delle illustrazioni presenti nel suo celebre volume di Neurologia. Il manuale “La Neurologia della Sapienza” non è un punto di arrivo, ma di partenza. Il nostro intento è di aggiornare e rendere sempre più completo il volume con successive edizioni. La ricerca, infatti, va avanti e in questa II Edizione sono stati aggiornati la quasi totalità dei capitoli, a dimostrazione della vitalità della comunità scientifica neurologica e della necessità di un aggiornamento costante per clinici e studenti.

Risk Factors for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke address the relationship of a wide variety of vascular risk factors in the spectrum of cerebrovascular diseases. An international group of professionals the forefront of research and education, provide their expertise about environmental and genetic determinants for cerebrovascular disease and stroke. The authors aim to provide information on developments of genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke, and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular disease. One in two men, and one in three women after the age of 40, will develop a stroke in their lifetime. The burden of cerebrovascular disease extends far beyond that of acute clinical events such as stroke, with "covert" vascular injury on brain MRI being highly prevalent in older community-dwelling persons. Therefore, improving our understanding of the risk factors for stroke and cerebrovascular disease is of paramount importance for improving prevention strategies. Secular trends in stroke epidemiology, risk factors, and intermediate markers (including carotid ultrasound, brain MRI and circulating biomarkers) are presented. Cutting edge information on genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular diseases are displayed. This important book is an essential reference to physicians interested in more effective primary prevention of stroke.

Fully revised and updated, the Third Edition of this respected text continues to provide complete and current information on the sites, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of focal lesions of the peripheral nervous system. Detailed coverage of individual nerves emphasizes normal anatomy, pathology, and diagnosis. While this edition retains the easy-access organizational framework of prior editions, many more clinical figures have been added to aid readers in improving diagnostic accuracy. Close attention is given to the latest imaging techniques, electrodiagnostic testing methods, and intraoperative electrophysiologic recordings. Early chapters review the gross anatomy and structure of peripheral nerves, the physiologic sequelae of various types of nerve damage, the abnormalities found in electrodiagnostic tests, and the work-up for patients with focal neuropathies. The remaining chapters address the courses and anatomical relations of various nerves, identify the types and sites of lesions, and discuss the investigation and management of specific focal neuropathies.

In this new collection of essays, Andrew Feenberg argues that conflicts over the design and organization of the technical systems that structure our society shape deep choices for the future. A pioneer in the philosophy of technology, Feenberg demonstrates the continuing vitality of the critical theory of the Frankfurt School. He calls into question the anti-technological stance commonly associated with its theoretical legacy and argues that technology contains potentialities that could be developed as the basis for an alternative form of modern society. Feenberg's critical reflections on the ideas of Jürgen Habermas, Herbert Marcuse, Jean-François Lyotard, and Kitaro Nishida shed new light on the philosophical study of technology and modernity. He contests the prevalent conception of technology as an unstoppable force responsive only to its own internal dynamic and politicizes the discussion of its social and cultural construction. This argument is substantiated in a series of compelling and well-grounded case studies. Through his exploration of science fiction and film, AIDS research, the French experience with the "information superhighway," and the Japanese reception of Western values, he demonstrates how technology, when subjected to public pressure and debate, can incorporate ethical and aesthetic values.
