Neural Circuit Development and Function in the Healthy and Diseased Brain
Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience
Neuroscience, developmental biology researchers, including stem cells, aging and diseases. Translational neuroscience researchers - many neurodegeneration diseases (Alzheimers!) have their roots in mechanisms studied in development, and many psychiatric diseases (Autism!) are consequences of developmental problems (Rubenstein is Prof Psychiatry)

Table of ContentsBrain Development: Normal Mechanisms and Disease Mechanisms - A comprehensive reference is the first complete in depth overview over this important area. Under the leadership of John Rubenstein (Ireland Professor for Psychiatry University of California San Francisco) and Pasko Rakic (Duberg Professor for Neurobiology, Yale University, former president SfN and one of the inaugural recipients in 2008 of the new, highest honor in Neuroscience, the Kavli Price) a brilliant team of the best scientists in Neuroscience and Developmental Biology present an up to date view of the field in over 200 articles, including 30 top level overview articles of the major subjects of interest (e.g. stem cells, neurodegeneration, developmental psychiatric disorders etc).
This unique reference is heavily illustrated in full color, and only available on-line in a heavily cross referenced format. The currency of the work and each article will be reviewed once a year, and updates or new articles will be added as necessary.
