Summary Considerable progress has been made on the pathogenesis and therapeutic strategies of neurotraumatic diseases recent years. Ischemic and Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries: Mechanisms and Potential Therapies presents readers with comprehensive and cutting edge information on molecular mechanisms, including signal transduction processes associated with neurodegeneration and neuroprotection in ischemic, spinal cord, severe and mild brain injuries. The book also covers the molecular mechanisms of drugs used for the treatment of neurotraumatic disease. Chapters are organized by molecular aspects and neuroprotective strategies by disease, including ischemic injury, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The author aims to integrate and consolidate knowledge on neurotraumatic diseases and hopes that it will provide the basis of more dramatic advances and developments not only on molecular mechanisms, but also on causes and treatment of neurotraumatic diseases
