Editorial Reviews

With a hapless transgenic mouse expressing a human spinocerebellular ataxia type I gene on the cover, this volume comprises 14 contributed chapters by 31 international specialists in the neurosciences. The editor concedes that, with the rapid proliferation of mouse models for neurological disorders, this can hardly be a comprehensive compendium. Following his overview of such genetically engineered models in neuroscience research, coverage treats models in the study of: Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease, Charcot-Marie Tooth disease, cerebellar development, the role of neurotrophic factors in development and neurodegenerative disorders, neurofilament abnormalities, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, CAG trinucleotide repeat diseases, Alzheimer's, lysomal disorders, PKU/hyperphenylalaninemia, Down syndrome, and epilepsy.
