Summary Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases of the Central Nervous System is a comprehensive reference work that provides the neuroscience community with valuable, current, and scholarly summaries on every known degenerative disorder. Written by two world-renowned neuropathologists, the book provides an optimal basis for the understanding of metabolic and degenerative diseases of the central nervous system and presents a synthesis that serves the needs of today's investigators in neuropathology, neurology, neuroradiology, neurosurgery, neuropediatrics, general pathology, and geriatrics. This is the only comprehensive authoritative review of the neuropathology of metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases. In the future, genetic engineering is expected to provide effective molecular therapy for the countless diseases currently termed "metabolic" or "degenerative." Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases of the Central Nervous System is intended to provide a sound morphological platform for these forthcoming events. Key Features * Neuropathology of every disease correlated with an overview of the medical and general pathological changes * Authored by neuropathologists with international reputations as educators and scientists * Highlighted with illustrations from the authors' own archives and contributions from colleagues throughout the world
