About this book


In Protocols for Neural Cell Culture, Third Ed., Sergey Fedoroff and Arleen Richardson extensively revise, update, and expand their best-selling and highly praised collection of readily reproducible neural tissue culture protocols. This 3rd edition adds 11 chapters describing important new procedures for the isolation, growth, and characterization of neural stem cells and for the manipulation of glial progenitor cells, as well as essential procedures for hippocampal and microglial slice cultures and transfection of neurons in culture with adenovirus. It includes key techniques for the preparation of substrata, the use of serum-free media, maintaining hybridomas, and the production and purification of monoclonal antibodies. For scientists not trained in neuroanatomy, but faced with dissecting the brain and spinal cord, most chapters in the 3rd edition provide fully detailed dissection procedures.
Protocols for Neural Cell Culture, Third Ed. is a richly augmented updating of the tried and tested laboratory procedures that have made earlier editions an indispensable reference and guide to neural cell culture. Its unique wealth of practical detail on a wide range of tissue culture systems having many applications ensure that this new edition will remain an essential resource for all investigators using cell culture methodology in studying the brain and its disorders.
