The rapid growth of the study of apoptosis-mechanism-driven, regulated cell death-has created an urgent need for reliable documentation of the different approaches to and methods of studying the various aspects of the field. Apoptosis in Neurobiology is an important resource for researchers in this emerging frontier of biomedical study. This volume allows the uninitiated neuroscientist intellectual and practical access to the study of apoptosis, with special consideration to the nervous system. The first section concentrates on conceptual approaches to the study of apoptosis in neurobiology and its significance to the nervous system. The second section provides a user-friendly approach to methods and techniques in the study of apoptosis as applied to neurobiology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
... a nice introduction to the field of neuronal apoptosis and to methods for identifying apoptotic cells. ... the editor and authors are to be commended for providing a coherent, although detailed overview, indicated by an average of over 170 references per chapter.
-Joseph A. Bobich, Chemistry, Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas, USA
