Blending cutting-edge research and beautiful storytelling, Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon is a vital resource on the best ways to boost your memory, control stress and emotions, minimize pain, unleash your creativity, raise smart kids and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

            Organ and Tissue Donation (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Organ and tissue transplants can be the last resort for a range of life-saving and life-improving treatments. Although the latest organ donation figures have reached a record high, the total however, only equates to a national organ donor rate of 13.8 per million, which suggests ...more can be done to help Australians who are on transplant waiting lists. This book addresses the misconceptions and facts about organ and tissue donation and registration with the aim of raising community awareness in an effort to boost donation rates. It also explores a range of ethical issues around consent and objection, such as 'opt-out' system proposals, religious considerations, the brain death debate, altruistic living tissue and organ donation, the illegal market in body parts, and animal to human transplantation (xenotransplantation). What does it take to give the gift of life? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
