Metabolic Encephalopathy is meant to combine and correlate animal and human studies. In many cases, alterations in the neurochemistry of humans and experimental animal models are similar. It is hoped that increased awareness of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of these disorders may result in a lowering of the incidence of structural changes and morbidity. These metabolic encephalopathies hold a special fascination for both basic scientists and clinical investigators because they are accessible, treatable, and there exist good animal models for further study. Therefore, this book assembles both basic and clinical neuroscience issues in the treatment of specific metabolic encephalopathies such as uremia, Wernicke's disease, epilepsy, stroke, hepatic encephalopathy, pediatric encephalopathies, inborn errors of metabolism, toxins such as lead, depression, cerebral infections, kernicterus, Wilson disease, HIV encephalopathy, and many others.
