Summary Heat shock proteins are involved in many physiological processes, including development and differentiation, organisation of the cytoarchitecture by binding to cytoskeletal elements, and regulation of the balance between cell death and survival. This book addresses the role of heat shock proteins and cellular stress responses in the brain
