Although the perioperative care of patients by anesthesiologists draws on diverse clinical skills, the principles of anesthesiology and pain management are rooted in the neurosciences. The Neuroscientific Foundations of Anesthesiology thoroughly examines the anesthetic modulation of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems and will help redefine anesthesiology as a fundamentally neuroscientific field. The book is organized by sections, with each focusing on a different part of the nervous system. State-of-the-art chapters written by thought-leaders in anesthesiology and neuroscience provide a novel and invaluable resource. * Uniquely covers anesthesiology as a neuroscientific field * Extensive chapters are organized by systems for easy understanding * An invaluable resource for both clinicians and scientists in anesthesiology and neuroscience * Covers anesthetic neurotoxicity, a topic of current controversy and importance George A.
