An autobiographical and inspirational record about one of the rarest and most abnormal heart conditions. This book describes my true story of the struggles and processes I used to survive this ferocious syndrome. This can be beneficial for medical professionals and patients that deal with this syndrome. This chronicle of my diagnosis of Wolff-White-Parkinson Syndrome can provide people whom possess this syndrome with inspiration and hope. I combined this true story of my experience with this syndrome using inspirational thoughts and religious insight. There are some interesting twists and short true stories that are involved with this suffering. I hope those that suffer from this syndrome can relate to my struggle. . 1. Language: English.

Recognizing and solving the PTSD epidemic, for our soldiers and our society. Suicide rates among Army soldiers increased 80 percent between 2004 and 2008, according to a recent report published in Injury Prevention. In the last several years, the number of soldiers returning from the Middle East with mental and physical wounds has continued to climb. According to Dr. Simon Rego, a supervising psychologist at Montefiore Medical Center, "Unlike any other time in history, U.S. military suicide rates now appear to have surpassed those among comparable civilian populations. It is therefore critical that we address this emerging public-health problem." In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Liebert, a psychiatrist who has examined hundreds of violent offenders with combat experience, and best-selling author Dr. William Birnes uncover the disturbing truths of why post-traumatic stress injury is on the rise, how it’s threatening society, and how the military is failing to properly address this serious issue. In addition, they describe the most recent research and methods that have been developed to help soldiers heal their mental and emotional wounds. Wounded Minds dissects several high-profile cases of suicide and massacre, including Staff Sergeant Robert Bales’s murder of 16 Afghan citizens and Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who opened fire on a room full of defenseless American troops. Through these stories the authors paint a clear picture of the very real threat PTSD poses to individuals and society. They then go on to explain how to diagnose and understand the brain abnormalities associated with PTSD, the diagnostic problems confronting military medicine today, and both immediate and ongoing medical solutions. 1.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Parkinson's Law is the adage first articulated by Cyril Northcote Parkinson as the first sentence of a humorous essay published in The Economist in 1955: Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. It was later reprinted together with other essays in the book Parkinson's Law: The Pursuit of Progress (London, John Murray, 1958). He derived the dictum from his extensive experience in the British Civil Service. The current form of the law is not that which Parkinson refers to by that name in the article. Rather, he assigns to the term a mathematical equation describing the rate at which bureaucracies expand over time.

Rather, he assigns to the term a mathematical equation describing the rate at which bureaucracies expand over time. Much of the essay is dedicated to a summary of purportedly scientific observations supporting his law, such as the increase in the number of employees at the Colonial Office while Great Britain's overseas empire declined (indeed, he shows that the Colonial Office had its greatest number of staff at the point when it was folded into the Foreign Office because of a lack of colonies to administer).
This book investigated how vision contributes to gait impairment in Parkinson s disease (PD). This was achieved by manipulating visual feedback in the form of step cues, but also from a perceptual standpoint by evaluating how visual perception might contribute to gait impairment. Combining visual feedback aids in perceptually demanding conditions facilitated a greater understanding of the deficits associated with gait in PD. Also, a number of visual cues were examined to determine the viability of these cues in improving the abnormal gait patterns demonstrated by these individuals with PD, including freezing of gait (FOG) and the less severe shuffling step pattern. It was determined that individuals with PD require conscious control of their gait pattern in order to overcome the gait deficits which are prevalent in PD. Also, it was found that a certain degree of visuospatial ability appears to be more greatly affected in thoseindividuals with PD who are subject to FOG. This suggests an important perceptual difference between the PD observed within those who experience FOG and non-FOG individuals with PD.
This book provides new insight into how learned skilled movements are affected in a disease with basal ganglia damage. The first aim was to examine the different types of praxis errors made by individuals with Parkinson s disease(PD) in reference to other populations that experience apraxia. Apraxia by definition cannot be caused by weakness, sensory loss, or lack of comprehension, therefore the second objective of the study was to detect apraxia while remaining true to these prerequisites. The third objective was to extend the examination of apraxia beyond the upper limbs to investigate lower limb apraxia. In summary, these studies showed while not clinically present in all individuals with PD, apraxia is often featured in both the upper limbs and lower limbs, and is observable even in the presence of motor symptoms. A newly developed assessment tool for examining apraxia in the lower limbs was also introduced and found to be insightful and should be considered for assessment in other populations such as stroke. The results have supported the notion that apraxia assessments should be taken into account in the diagnosis and treatment of PD and other basal ganglia disorders.
