Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Modern neuroscience has clarified a good proportion of concepts regarding neuronal cell migration and development. This book reflects the current understanding in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to address current gaps in the interaction between basic sciences and clinical conditions.
Audience: Neurologists, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists are the main audience. The authors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: In this well written book, experts in biological science as well as medical and neuroscience professionals discuss important concepts in new research and development. The many illustrations and fluid text allow readers to fully grasp the topic, regardless of their level of expertise. Although most of the book is devoted to the interaction between clinical neurological disorders and alterations in neuronal migration and maturation, the last two chapters discuss the association between neuronal migration and schizophrenia and alterations in neuronal migration in humans.
Assessment: This is an excellent book. It is well written, referenced, and illustrated.
