Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
