La migraña es, oficialmente, la consecuencia de un cerebro genéticamente hiperexcitable. Los accesos de dolor se generarían, según la doctrina compartida mayoritariamente por los neurólogos, por la descarga anormal hipersensible de programas defensivos (dolor, vómitos, intolerancia sensorial...) configurados en diversos grupos neuronales. El autor presenta en el libro una tesis contrapuesta: el cerebro migrañoso no nace sino que se va construyendo a lo largo del aprendizaje, influido no sólo por la genética, sino principalmente por la información que recoge en su entorno. Gran parte de esa información procede de los profesionales y su contenido facilita el inicio y desarrollo de las crisis. La migraña contiene la estructura de la fobia, del miedo irracional, de las pesadillas, en este caso centradas en lo que pudiera suceder en el interior del cráneo. El individuo puede modificar esa condición fóbica de su cerebro pero para ello debe cambiar sus convicciones y conductas dotándolas de racionalidad. No se trata de aplicar una terapia sino una pedagogía: cambiar el chip migrañoso, desactivarlo. Con un lenguaje sencillo y comprensible, este libro nos ofrece la posibilidad de conseguirlo. Arturo Goicoechea nació en Mondragón (Guipúzcoa) en 1946. Es jefe de la Sección de Neurología del Hospital de Santiago de Vitoria y se ha dedicado de forma preferente al estudio de la percepción somática desde la perspectiva de la moderna Neurociencia Cognitiva. Colabora habitualmente con la sección de dolor neuropático de la Sociedad Española de Neurología y ha publicado dos monografías sobre dolor: Cerebro y dolor y Depresión y dolor.

"The book is aimed at medical students and residents, in fields from internal medicine and pediatrics to emergency medicine, surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, who are likely to encounter patients with disordered states of consciousness. It includes historical background and basic neurophysiology that is important for those in the clinical neurosciences, but also lays out a practical approach to the comatose patient that is an important part of the repertoire of all clinicians who provide emergency care for patients with disorders of consciousness."--BOOK JACKET.

The many manifestations of migraine can vary dramatically from one patient to another, even within the same patient at different times. Among the most compelling and perplexing of these symptoms are the strange visual hallucinations and distortions of space, time, and body image which migraineurs sometimes experience. Portrayals of these uncanny states have found their way into many works of art, from the heavenly visions of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice in Wonderland. Dr. Oliver Sacks argues that migraine cannot be understood simply as an illness, but must be viewed as a complex condition with a unique role to play in each individual's life.

Imagine an orchestra in your brain. It plays all kinds of harmonious melodies, then pain comes along and the different sections of the orchestra are reduced to a few pain tunes. All pain is real. And for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help people to overcome their pain. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain: how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. Explain Pain aims to give clinicians and people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens during pain. Once they have learnt about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery. The Authors: Dr Lorimer Moseley is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and the Inaugural Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, Adelaide, where he leads research groups at Body in Mind as well as with Neuroscience Research Australia in Sydney. Dr David Butler is an international freelance educator, author and director of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, based in Adelaide, Australia. Both authors continue to publish and present widely.

It is the story of a worldwide network of rabid fans escaping everyday mundanity through music, of cut-throat corporate arseholes ripping off those fans and the bands they worship to line their pockets. The expansive pantheon of heavy metal musicians includes junkies, Satanists and murderers, born-again Christians and teetotallers, stadium-touring billionaires and toilet-circuit journeymen. Award-winning comedian and life-long heavy metal obsessive Andrew O'Neill has performed his History of Heavy Metal comedy show to a huge range of audiences, from the teenage metalheads of Download festival to the broadsheet-reading theatre-goers of the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, in his first book, he takes us on his own very personal and hilarious journey through the history of the music, the subculture, and the characters who shaped this most misunderstood genre of music.

A heartwarming dog story like no other: Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever. A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover. Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being--until Luis. Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other's souls.

Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine A “wondrously frightening” (Publishers Weekly) tale of terror and #1 national bestseller about a writer’s pseudonym that comes alive and destroys everyone on the path that leads to the man who created him. Thad Beaumont is a writer, and for a dozen years he has secretly published violent bestsellers under the name of George Stark. But Thad is a healthier and happier man now, the father of infant twins, and starting to write as himself again. He no longer needs George Stark and so, with nationwide publicity, the pseudonym is retired. But George Stark won’t go willingly. And now Thad would like to say he is innocent. He’d like to say he has nothing to do with the twisted imagination that produced his bestselling novels. He’d like to say he has nothing to do with the series of monstrous murders that keep coming closer to his home. But how can Thad deny the ultimate embodiment of evil that goes by the name he gave it—and signs its crimes with Thad’s bloody fingerprints? The Dark Half is “a chiller” (The New York Times Book Review), so real and fascinating that you’ll find yourself squirming in Stephen King’s heart-stopping, blood-curdling grip—and loving every minute of it.

There are times when people change the course of their history. It happens rarely and requires the union of many different wishes. This novel by Arantzazu Ametzaga tells passionately one of those chapters, perhaps the most important and unknown, which took place in a Pyrenean gorge back in August of 778. She tells the story in a documented and entertaining way, bringing together different stories from two timelines: the VIIIth century, going with Charlemagne to Vasconia, and the XIIIth century, developing stained glass in the cathedral of Chartres. A captivating tale to recall the deed which founded the first Vascones Kingdom.
