About these proceedings


Selected papers from the prestigious Stonwin Medical Conference, which each summer invites a small group of neurosurgical investigation. This volume presents recent advances in research and practice of surgery of the severed spinal cord. Future volumes will treat similarly focused, cutting-edge topics. In terms of editorial strategy, this series will afford Springer entree to a select groups of neurosurgeons.
