Researchers discuss treating neurological disorders with neural stem cells
This book summarizes the current knowledge on neural stem cell activity and the functional significance of adult neurogenesis in health and disease; susceptibility and plasticity of neural stem cells to drugs of abuse and anesthesia; neural stem cell therapy for Parkinson's disease, stroke, temporal lobe epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease and spinal cord injury; and manufacturing of donor neural cells for cell therapy via directed differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells.
New book shows how US can achieve better health of its citizens and cut healthcare costs
What should the US do to improve the health of its citizens? According to a new book by Arizona State University and Mayo Clinic health experts, what is needed is a new frame of mind when it comes to individual health behaviors, especially in regard to diet and exercise.
Everyone's a star: 21st century theater audiences' part of the show
Audiences in the 21st century are not content to just sit in the dark and be quiet. A new book by QUT Lecturer in Drama Caroline Heim explores the growing trend of audiences to insert themselves in the show and how theaters and performers are increasingly embracing the concept. A former stage actor, she conducted her research in the theaters of New York, London, Toronto, Glasgow and Sydney.
QUT Woman in Research
World's first comprehensive volume of convection parameterization in atmospheric modeling
'Parameterization of Atmospheric Convection,' recently published by World Scientific, provides for the first time, a comprehensive presentation of this important topic.
Caring for people with dementia -- a new Australian-first guide on respite care
It's Dementia Awareness Month in Australia and World Alzheimer's Day on Sept. 21 but who is looking out for those who care for the million-plus Australians with dementia? QUT and the Dementia Collaborative Research Centres have launched an Australian-first national guide on respite for carers written with input from hundreds of carers surveyed on their experiences.
Free e-book offers tips for reducing breast cancer risk
A free e-book, 'Together - Every Woman's Guide to Preventing Breast Cancer' aims to help women improve their breast health and the breast health of their loved ones.
A UCSB anthropologist explores cattle raising in the Amazon and the tensions between conservation and development.
'From the First Star to Milkomeda'
Avi Loeb, chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department and director of the Institute for Theory and Computation, has published a new eBook: 'From the First Star to Milkomeda.'
New computational method for the simulation of solids aids in prediction of fracture
The discipline of fracture mechanics is required only because of the limitations of continuum mechanics. What if a theory for the deformation of solids included both continuous and cracking behavior by design? The new book 'Introduction to Practical Peridynamics' by Walter Gerstle and published by World Scientific develops a computational approach to the simulation of solids that is much more efficacious than current finite element approaches.
New book on 'Methods in Yeast Genetics and Genomics' from CSHLPress
'Methods in Yeast Genetics and Genomics: A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Course Manual, 2015 Edition' covers the full repertoire of genetic approaches needed to dissect complex biological problems in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Dramatic breakthroughs in treatment of autoimmune inflammatory diseases
Over the past two decades, dramatic breakthroughs have occurred in the treatment of the inflammatory autoimmune diseases. In this volume, the recent progress, current status, and future development of therapy research for this large group of diseases are discussed by experts from different fields of medicine, including clinical immunology, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, pulmonology and rheumatology.
'Laboratory Biorisk Management' details safety, security methods for biosciences sites
Sandia National Laboratories announces a new book, titled 'Laboratory Biorisk Management.' It's the first full-length manuscript detailing the implementation of biorisk management principles to improve the safety and security of biosciences labs.
New book argues that social sciences are critical to climate change
Pope Francis recently made an impassioned plea for a 'cultural revolution' to combat climate change, calling for collective action and 'a conversation which includes everyone.' Thus far, the climate conversation has often neglected the contributions of one key group: social scientists. According to the new book 'Climate Change and Society: Sociological Perspectives,' engaging the social -- and not just natural -- sciences is essential for effecting large-scale change.
Entirely new invariant in commutative (and non-commutative) algebra
World Scientific's newly published book 'A Non-Hausdorff Completion: The Abelian Category of C-complete Left Modules over a Topological Ring,' introduces an entirely new invariant in commutative (and non-commutative) algebra and in homological algebra, and opens up a whole new area for study, with also probable applications to algebraic geometry and algebraic topology -- including p-adic cohomology in algebraic geometry.
The next leap forward in energy storage
Editors Nancy J. Dudney, William C. West, and Jagjit Nanda have brought together a highly diverse and accomplished group of expert theorists and experimentalists in the field of solid-state batteries. These 51 authors across a wide range of disciplines contributed 22 chapters encompassing three main aspects of the field: Enabling Technologies and Fundamental of Solid State Systems, Novel Solid Electrolyte Systems and Interfaces, and Devices and Three Dimensional Architectures.
ASA task force releases new book on climate change
Edited by Riley E. Dunlap and Robert J. Brulle, the forthcoming book, 'Climate Change and Society: Sociological Perspectives,' breaks new theoretical and empirical ground by presenting climate change as a thoroughly social phenomenon, embedded in behaviors, institutions, and cultural practices.
New clinical standards for emergency nurse practitioners
Dr. Jane O'Connell, Australia's first endorsed nurse practitioner specializing in emergency care, is leading the way in re-defining the role specialty nurse practitioners play in the health system. She has published the first set of clinical practice standards for emergency nurse practitioners.
'Nudging' consumers along: New book helps organizations solve the 'last mile' problem
Most organizations spend much of their effort on the start of the value creation process. They pay a lot less attention to the end: the crucial 'last mile' where consumers come to their website, store, or sales representatives and make a choice. In 'The Last Mile: Creating Social and Economic Value from Behavioral Insights,' a new book from Rotman-UTP Publishing, author Dilip Soman shows how to use insights from behavioral science in order to close that gap.

New research could lead to better identification of human vulnerabilities
A researcher at the University of Missouri suggests that research in 'male vulnerability' should be expanded to include 'female vulnerability.' Using evolutionary theory, he proposes a method for identifying when specific traits, such as height or language abilities, are compromised in one sex or the other or at some ages but not others. Identification of age-, sex-, and trait-specific sensitivities will enable an assessment of how disease, poor nutrition and environmental toxins undermine human wellbeing.
Solving energy-related engineering problems with thermodynamics concepts
In his third book, Thermodynamics: Principles and Applications, published by World Scientific, Ismail Tosun (Middle East Technical University) helps students to easily grasp the fundamentals of thermodynamics.
A Singularly Unfeminine Profession: One Woman's Journey in Physics
'I became a feminist by necessity. My passion was physics.' With this quote from Mary K. Gaillard's new book, 'A Singularly Unfeminine Profession: One Woman's Journey in Physics', Robert Sanders begins his description of this book about Gaillard's career and her resilience in the face of subtle and not-so-subtle discrimination.
The 9th edition of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart is out
The JRC has released a new edition of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart, an extended periodic table which displays all known isotopes of every element and their radioactive data. The 9th edition contains new and updated radioactive decay data on 1,644 nuclides not found in the previous 2012 issue. In total, nuclear data on 3,992 experimentally observed nuclides are presented.
