"Myelin Biology and Disorders, an extraordinary compilation of knowledge about myelin and myelin diseases, benefits from the intrinsic interest and importance of the topic no less than from the hard work of its contributing authors. ...Myelin Biology and Disorders represents a bravura achievement for all concerned and, now, a standard for the field." --THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE(October 21, 2004) "...a splendid book, an important addition to any serious clinical neuroscience bookshelf, and of lasting value: it is an outstanding achievement on the part of the Editor and the publisher." --BRAIN, 2005 "...no medical library or institution with a neuroscience research program can afford to be without a copy of this treatise. Lazzarini and his five section editors are to be applauded for overseeing the production of such a well-illustrated and thorough work on this set of major debilitating diseases. There is also an excellent historical preface that recounts the work of the remarkable set of early researchers whose splendid work in the late 19th and early 20th centuries founded this important field of research." --Lloyd Davidson, Life Sciences Librarian, Head, Access Services and Kaplan Humanities Fellow, Northwestern University Seeley G. Mudd Library for Science and Engineering, E-STREAMS Vol 7 No 11, November 2004) "Under the baton of Robert Lazzarini, five distinguished editors have assembled a comprehensive treatise covering the origin and neurobiology of myelin-forming cells, the assembly of the myelin sheath and its often unforgiving diseases." --Monique Dubois-Dalcq, MD, Department of Neuroscience, The Pasteur Institute, Paris, France "This book comprises comprehensive, thoughtfully edited, uniformly first-rate chapters on myelination. It is the definitive work in the field." --David R. Colman. Ph.D., Director, The Montreal Neurological Institute "The two volumes on Glial Cell and Myelin Functional Biology serve as an impressive platform to showcase the rich literature on oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells in development and disease...The current and comprehensive style will make this book a standard for the field." --Moses V.
