Animal Models of Neurological Disease, II : Metabolic Encephalopathies and the Epilepsies
by Alan Boulton
Serie: Neuromethods, Vol. 22
These books go out of their way to be helpful. Most chapters introduce the animal models against the background of the human (i.e., clinical) context and conclude with a brief summary. Detailed experimental protocols and useful tabulations abound. Descriptions are exhaustive.-Trends in Neurosciences --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
The use of animal models continues to be the most reliable way of studying pathophysiologic mechanisms as well as treatments for neurological disorders. In two companion volumes, Animal Models of Neurological Disease highlights new information and techniques available in this rapidly growing area. This volume of Neuromethods-the second of a two-volume set on Animal Models of Neurological Disease-presents forefront techniques for studying a variety of seizure disorders and metabolic diseases affecting the CNS. Contributions have been gleaned from a panel of experts in several areas, including: human stroke • focal and global ischemia • brain hypoxia in vivo and in vitro • Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome • chemically induced and genetic-based seizures • the kindling model of epilepsy • hepatic encephalopathies • vitamin deficiency syndromes • hereditary hyperammonemias. Boulton, Baker, and Butterworth's important new set on Animal Models of Neurological Disease is an outstanding guide for all researchers striving to better understand neurological disease.
