Introducing a new book series

A co-publication of the New York Academy of Sciences and John Wiley & Sons, the series covers a wide variety of topics in the life and physical sciences in several different formats, including educational textbooks, professional and techniques books, and handbooks.

The Academy invites proposals in all life and physical sciences, including:

Antibiotics/Antimicrobial Therapeutics
Cancer Climate Change
Cognitive Neuroscience
Early Childhood Development
Ecology and Conservation Biology
Genomics/Genetic Diseases
Microbiology/Infectious Diseases
Obesity Physiology/Pathophysiology
Stem Cells
STEM Education
Systems Biology

Submit a proposal

If you are interested in discussing a project, please contact Dr. Douglas Braaten, In your proposal, include author/editor CV(s), a brief description of the book and target audience, and a table of contents (with contributors, if relevant).

Neurobiological Basis of Migraine provides focused but broad-ranging coverage on the neurobiological mechanisms of migraine headaches. First, the pathways and networks mediating the headache, underlying physiological mechanisms, characteristics of visceral pain, and concept of dural neurogenic inflammation are introduced. This background paves the way for understanding mechanisms sustaining head pain and photophobia, which are complemented by reviews of pharmacology and recently discovered novel treatments of the migraine headache. These basic chapters are followed by clinical and genetic information about migraine that provide the links to concepts such as cortical spreading depression (CSD), ion channels, transporters, and epilepsy. Exciting recent developments on the migraine mutations discovered and their role in CSD and the role of CSD in aura and trigeminal activation (headache) are also introduced.
