Overview

In the vast field of neuroscience, the introduction over the last 30 years of new investigative techniques (such as transmission and scanning electron microscopy, freeze-fracturing technique, cell organelle isolation by differential centrifugation, autoradiography, tracing techniques and immunocytochemistry) has greatly expanded our knowledge of neurocytology. This new information, however, is generally dispersed in the specialist journals or collected in reviews on specific topics. As a result, those whose interests lie in neurocytology have difficulty not only in finding data relative to their particular research, but also and above all, in gaining an overall and systematic vision of their discipline. It was this situation which prompted Ennio Pannese to systematize the major acquisitions on the minute structure of nerve and neuroglial cells and their interrelationships, correlate them with the classical concepts of light microscopy and integrate them, where possible, with elements of biochemistry and cell physiology.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Pedro Cuevas, MD, PhD (Central Especial "Ramon y Cajal")
Description: This book aims to give an overview of the many facets of modern microscopic neuroanatomy. It is a concise methodological text, arranged in 11 chapters, with high-quality electron micrographs.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive review of current knowledge in neurocytology, particularly at the ultrastructural level. The section on intercellular junctions has a weak point, because no mention is made of connexin family of proteins.
Audience: This is an advanced text for individuals with an established interest in the neurosciences. It would also be of interest for students, residents, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.
Features: The book has superb illustrations. The publisher deserves a word of thanks for its attention to the comfort of the reader. This is apparent in the intelligent choice of page size and text arrangement. The references are voluminous and up-to-date.
Assessment: The book is recommended for students, neuroscientists, and practitioners as a comprehensive, up-to-date, and informative source of information on the fine structure of the nervous system.

A text that provides investigators engaged in studies in neurochemistry and cell physiology with essential information on the structure of nerve and neuroglial cells and their relationships. The volume is divided into 11 chapters: historical notes on neurons and interneuronal connections; some evolutionary aspects and general features of neurons; shape and size of neurons; different types of neurons; the structure of neurons; intercellular junctions involving neurons; the neuroglial cells of the peripheral nervous system; the neuroglial cells of the CNS; microglial cells; the cellular organization of the nervous system; and the blood vessels of the CNS.
