About this book

Introduction

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are a growing burden on our society. Understanding and treating these common diseases is one of the major current challenges for the biomedical field. In Neurodegeneration: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field tackle this challenge and present cutting-edge analytical and technological approaches to study the mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative processes. Organizes into five sections, chapters detail protocols for isolating and culturing cells from the nervous system, production and use of animal models, characterization of cell death, analytical tools to study disease mechanisms, and therapeutic approaches for neurodegeneration. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™  series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and easily accessible, Neurodegeneration: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide to both novice and professional researchers in the field of neurodegeneration.
