This handbook provides a comprehensive overview for students, clinicians and researchers planning to enter the field of neural regeneration, combining the latest knowledge with an understanding of all important model organisms in one handy volume. By covering the strengths and weaknesses as well as possible applications of different models it saves researchers both time and resources in their choice of the appropriate model organism. An equally valuable introduction for the novice planning to enter the field.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Central nervous system regeneration models have been extensively studied over the past few decades. Spinal cord regeneration is a crucial topic for review, since those affected are typically in their most productive years of life.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to demystify the fate of CNS degeneration by exposing the reader to new techniques of regeneration developed over the past few decades.
Audience: Neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and graduate students are the main target audience.
Features: Over 30 authors contribute 13 chapters in this book. Beginning with molecular and biologic evidence of neuronal regeneration, the authors discuss different animal examples of spinal cord regeneration. Zebrafish is one of the best examples of spinal cord regeneration and leads to different genetic opportunities for research which have been explored over the past few decades. In my view, this is a complete reference on the topic.
Assessment: This is an excellent book that should be purchased by neuroscience and medical libraries.

Meet the Author

Catherina G. Becker is a senior lecturer and Thomas Becker is a senior researcher at the University of Edinburgh, UK. They are collaborating on spinal cord regeneration in adult zebrafish. Throughout their careers, the editors have shared a keen interest in central nervous system regeneration in different model organisms. They began their work in 1993, when both received their PhDs form the University of Bremen, Germany, for the analysis of central nervous system development and regeneration in amphibians. Catherina and Thomas Becker continued their studies, focusing on the role of cell recognition molecules in zebrafish, during postdoctoral studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Z?rich, Switzerland, the University of California at Irvine, USA, and at the University Hospital in Hamburg, Germany. From here they moved their group to Edinburgh. Their research has been continually supported by prestigious national and international fellowships and research grants.
