Neurodegenerative diseases result in progressive degeneration and / or death of nerve cells which leads to problems with movement and mental functioning. Examples include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. Much research is taking place to try to identify ways to prevent or lessen the impact of these diseases.

This volume reviews the latest research and developments in the molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases.

Key Features

  • Contributions from leading authorities
  • Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field

Praise for the series:
"Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist--for whom the numerous references will be invaluable--but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell." --British Medical Journal
