Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Manuel Dujovny, MD (Wayne State University School of Medicine)
Description: The importance of free radicals in neurodegeneration trauma, ischemia, epilepsy, etc. is becoming more evident.
Purpose: This volume represents an update of the knowledge of free radicals in several neurobiological processes.
Audience: This book is aimed at neurobiologists, neurophysiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropharmacologists.
Features: This book resulted from a conference held on free radicals in brain physiology and disorders in Tokyo in August 1995 in celebration of the retirement of Professor Akitane Mori, to whom this book is dedicated. It is divided into seven sections dedicated to the analysis of Guadinino compounds in the brain, free radicals and cell damage, the role of nitric oxide and neuronal disorders, the role of free radicals in the brain, the importance of free radicals in other neurological disorders, stress and environmental effects, and factors related to neurotoxicity. Several new approaches related to the prevention and treatment of free radical-related neurological disorders are well expanded by the contribution of multiple authors. The illustrations are pertinent. The index is appropriate for the content of the book. The overall appearance of the book is good.
Assessment: I found this book to represent a nice review of the importance of free radicals in neurophysiology, and I highly recommend it for neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropharmacologists.
