Overview

This volume brings together scientists and clinicians from diverse disciplines for discussions of oxidative injury in the nervous system. Areas of examination include:

• a review of metals and their role in oxidative injury, with special attention paid to iron
• the mechanisms by which the brain protects itself from oxidative harm
• the clinical diseases in which oxidative injury is known to contribute to the pathogenic process
• antioxidant therapeutic strategies in neurological disorders, and
• a proposed common pathway for oxidative injury in the brain.
