The Use of Antibodies to Define and Study Major Cell Types in the Central and Peripheral Nervous System
This chapter outlines research done in the MRC Neuroimmunology Project, Zoology Department, University College London, over the last 10 years. The variety of problems studied is large, but underlying the approach to all of them has been the premise that antibodies can be valuable tools for studying the nervous system.
