Its concise, direct style provides the reader with succinct and easy-to-find answers to forensic, pathological, pathophysiological, biomechanical, and molecular biology problems. Additionally, the authors cover several basic and practical problems that may stimulate further research. Each chapter includes an overview of the literature as well as specified references, and features a wealth of figures, graphs, and tables. The present volume deals with specific aspects of neuropathology, and is particularly appropriate for all those interested and involved in the field of forensic pathology, forensic sciences, clinical pathology, neurology, neurosurgery, law, and criminology.
