• Les ombres de Wild Fell

    Michael Rowe

    « Une superbe ghost story destinée aux amoureux de belles histoires, qui évoque des terreurs à la fois anciennes et modernes, et nous place au coeur d'un endroit où règne la peur, profonde, où passé et présent se croisent, faisant apparaître un monde obscur où les morts portent nos visages. Ou aucun. Un roman fantastique de première classe. Cli

  • More than 50 years ago, President Kennedy gave an address to congress that launched the community mental health movement in the U.S. This movement involved a vast and complex effort to replace the wholesale institutionalization of people with serious mental illnesses with community mental health centers, public education on mental illness, and prevention efforts. The mission and main thrust of this new movement, however, were quite simple: we would provide effective mental health treatment to people in their home communities and provide the conditions for them to have 'a life in the community.' Starting in the 1990s with Jim, a person who was homeless and initially refused help from outreach workers, Citizenship and Mental Health tells a 20-year story of practice, theory, and research to support the full participation of persons with mental illnesses who, in many cases, have also been homeless, have criminal charges in their past, and are poor. As the first of its kind, this book addresses the concept of citizenship as an applied theory for fulfilling the promise of the community mental health center movement. Citizenship is defined as a strong connection to the 5 R's of rights, responsibilities, roles, resources, and relationships that society offers to its members, and a sense of belonging that comes from others' recognition of one's valued membership in society. The citizenship model supports the strengths, hopes, and aspirations of people with mental illnesses to become neighbors, community members, and citizens.

  • As age related diseases increase in prevalence and impact more significantly on medical resources it is imperative to understand these diseases and the mechanisms behind their progression. New research has stimulated a growing interest in mitochondrial involvement in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis and the mechanisms which lead from mitochondrial dysfunction to neurodegeneration.
    Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Neurodegenerative Disorders brings together contributions from leaders in the field internationally on the various ways in which mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the pathogenesis of these diseases, guiding the reader through the basic functions of mitochondria and the mechanisms that lead to their dysfunction, to the consequences of this dysfunction on neuronal function before finishing with the modelling of these disorders and discussion of new potential therapeutic targets.
    Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Neurodegenerative Disorders provides an accessible, authoritative guide to this important area for neurologists; research and clinical neuroscientists; neuropathologists; and residents with an interest in clinical research.

  • This second edition brings together up-to-date contributions
    from leaders in the field internationally on the various ways in which
    mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative
    diseases, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and multiple
    sclerosis. The reader is guided through the basic functions of mitochondria and
    the mechanisms that lead to their dysfunction, and on to the consequences of
    this dysfunction for neuronal function before finishing with the modelling of
    these disorders and discussion of new potential therapeutic targets. Additional chapters have been added to the book to reflect
    advances in the field and there are many new contributors and topics, including
    how mitochondria are degraded and the interaction of the mitochondria with
    pathologically relevant proteins.
