Human aging; a biological and behavioral study by National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)( Book )

22 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the more serious public health problems of our day relate to the later years of life; and one of the most challenging issues for scholarly study is the mystery of the phenomenon of aging itself. This volume presents the efforts of 22 investigators and is primarily directed toward the understanding of the aging experience and the processes it involves. However, consonant with the premise of science that pure inquiry affords practical consequences, the public health implications of this work are obvious. Two strategies are clear in this study: first, the selection of the healthy, community-dwelling aged so that we may look anew at the prevailing ideas and research findings concerning the aged and aging which heretofore have stemmed primarily from studies of the sick and institutionalized; second, the introduction of the collaborative, multidisciplinary approach so that there can be a more complete and accurate evaluation of the many factors known, or believed, to determine the overt manifestations of aging. As important as the substantive findings, are the methods used in the research investigations. Despite the public health significance of the problems affecting the aged, ranging from sensory handicaps, to housing, to mental and physical illness, there has been a relative neglect of the study, care, and treatment of the aged. Basic inquiry into the final stages of life, therefore, is a welcome contribution to our public health effort in this country. It is opportune in many ways that this volume appears now at a time of increased national concern for the welfare of our older citizens and for the study and improvement of their health and welfare.

Dyslexia : an appraisal of current knowledge by Arthur Lester Benton( Book )

5 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 22 chapters of this book provide an analysis of current thinking about the condition known as "developmental dyslexia, ""specific reading disability," or "specific reading retardation." Leading investigators were commissioned to critically examine the scientific literature on dyslexia in various research areas and to write comprehensive state-of-the-art reviews. Topics of the major sections of the book are the nature and prevalence of dyslexia, psychological factors, neurobehavioral research, electroencephalographic and neurophysiological studies, genetic factors, early detection and preventive intervention, and remediation and instructional techniques. The conclusion notes that a satisfactory understanding of the nature of this disorder has not been achieved and that specific treatment and remediation methods of proven effectiveness have still to be developed.

Schizophrenia by Melissa K Spearing( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has affected people throughout history. About 1 percent of Americans have this illness. People with the disorder may hear voices other people don't hear. They may believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. This can terrify people with the illness and make them withdrawn or extremely agitated. People with schizophrenia may not make sense when they talk. They may sit for hours without moving or talking. Sometimes people with schizophrenia seem perfectly fine until they talk about what they are really thinking. Families and society are affected by schizophrenia too. Many people with schizophrenia have difficulty holding a job or caring for themselves, so they rely on others for help. Treatment helps relieve many symptoms of schizophrenia, but most people who have the disorder cope with symptoms throughout their lives. However, many people with schizophrenia can lead rewarding and meaningful lives in their communities. Researchers are developing more effective medications and using new research tools to understand the causes of schizophrenia. In the years to come, this work may help prevent and better treat the illness
