About this book


Interactions Between Neurons and Glia in Aging and Disease is an indispensable source of reference reviews and concise overviews of the functional cross-talk between neurons and glial cells. This key title specifically focuses on microglia and inflammation in the aging brain and in neurological disorders. The subject material covered by the book is a crucial competitive area with critical implications for human health and will be of key interest to the scientific community.

Interactions Between Neurons and Glia in Aging and Disease is broken into three main sections to help guide the reader from the basic functional cross-talk between neuron and glia to brain pathology.

  • Neuroimmunity and neuroinflammation
  • Signalling and inflammation in aging
  • Neurodegeneration and inflammation in age related diseases

This unique volume will be invaluable not only to those interested in neuroscience, but also cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and pharmaceutical sciences.
