Summary Neuroinflammation has long been studied for its connection to the development andprogression of Multiple Sclerosis. In recent years, the field has expanded to look at therole of inflammatory processes in a wide range of neurological conditions and cognitivedisorders including stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and autism. Researchers havealso started to note the beneficial impacts of neuroinflammation in certain diseases. Neuroinflammation: New Insights into Beneficial and Detrimental Functions provides acomprehensive view of both the detriments and benefits of neuroinflammation inhuman health. Neuroinflammation: New Insights into Beneficial and Detrimental Functionsopens with two chapters that look at some fundamental aspects of neuroinflammationin humans and rodents. The remainder of the book is divided into two sections whichexamine both the detrimental and beneficial aspects of inflammation on the brain, spinalcord and peripheral nerves, on various disease states, and in normal aging. Thesesections provide a broad picture of the role neuroinflammation plays in the physiologyand pathology of various neurological disorders. Providing cross-disciplinary coverage, Neuroinflammation: New Insights into Beneficialand Detrimental Functions will be an essential volume for neuroimmunologists, neurobiologists, neurologists, and others interested in the field. neurobiologists, neurologists, and others interested in the field.
