Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: The development of current molecular biology and immunocytochemistry triggered the evolution of neurology and neurosurgery, as novel forms of therapy could be adapted based on the experimental findings. This book is a necessary and required update on the topic.
Purpose: The main purpose of this book is to address the developments in the study of molecular biology of cells and how extrinsic influences help in organizing activities in the central nervous system. These are worthy and important objectives in today's clinical practice and the authors fully meet their objectives.
Audience: The audience is primarily neuroscientists and neurologists who are interested in the applied physiology of the nervous system and are able to incorporate the information discussed in this book into the understanding of ailments of the nervous system. These readers will find this a useful reference. The authors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: "Throughout its pages, this book approaches neuroscience in a practical fashion, i.e., how can the modern understanding of neurophysiology, anatomy, and immunochemistry help in figuring out the etiology of diseases of the nervous system. Among the best aspects of the book is the constant interaction and reference to current issues in neurology. The pictures are well done and self explanatory. The references are up-to-date and provide a full view of the topics by experts in the field. "
Assessment: This is a necessary component of any neuroscience library. Both the text and the graphics provide enjoyable, informative, and up-to-date reading for neurologists and neuroscientists alike..
