The Choroid Plexus and Cerebrospinal Fluid: Emerging Roles in CNS Development, Maintenance, and Disease Progression combines new and established work to allow for cross-disciplinary discussion and showcase newfound excitement surrounding the choroid plexus and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This book is of great utility to neuroscientists interested in biological questions about cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, choroid plexus, or CSF research, and especially for researchers looking to expand their research into later stages of their disease of interest, such as metastasis. No other resource is currently available which addresses these issues in this fashion. The focus on the choroid plexus provides a practical resource on modeling clinical issues influenced by this brain region for researchers from students to principal investigators.
Graduate students in biological and biomedical sciences, post-doctoral students and fellows, as well as all researchers and clinicians seeking a resource on the interactions of choroid plexus, cerebrospinal fluid during normal development, maintenance of brain microenvironment and neurodegenerative diseases (Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s Disease) and brain tumors (primary and metastatic).
