9780195152227: Neuroglia

Neuroglia is the only comprehensive reference book on the basic biology and function of glial cells. This long-awaited second edition has been completely reorganized and rewritten to include the dramatic advances in this field since the first edition was published ten years ago. The impact of the second edition will be greater than that of the first because the majority of neuroscientists now acknowledge that neuroglia are elemental to most, if not all, brain functions. The second edition covers the entire field of glial research from the basic molecular and cellular principles of these cells to their involvement in neurological diseases including stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis. It includes new chapters on transmitter release from exocytosis from glia, glia derived stem cells, glia and synaptic transmission, glia and axon guidance, an entirely new section on mechanisms of glial injury, and several new chapters on the roles of glia in different diseases. The new edition was written with both students and experts in mind. It provides a basic introduction to the entire range of glial topics and detailed information with critical assessment of the research literature. Neuroscience textbooks focus on the properties of neurons, whereas this book fills the information void about the brain's other cells. Neuroglia, Second Edition, is an essential reference source for newcomers, including graduate students, to neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neurophysiology, and molecular neurobiology. It is also a vital companion for established researchers in these fields as well as clinicians in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neuropathology, and neuro-oncology.

Review:


". . . I very much like this new edition of Neuroglia. It is a wonderful book focused entirely on glial cells . . . [it is] without doubt the best place to turn to for some glial education . . . All in all, Kettenmann and Ransom have once again done a great job of putting together this terrific book . . ." --Ben A. Barres in Nature Neuroscience


"Neuroglia, Second Edition is a valiant and up-to-date attempt at glial revanchism. It rings the bell of glial functions in health and disease loud and clear." --Journal of Neurosurgery


"This second edition. . .has been tightened up considerably. . .This condensation of information is one of the book's greatest strengths. . ."--Physiology News


"I welcome the publication of Neuroglia and congratulate its editors...despite the multiple authorship the text reads as if it had been written by a single author, the format is consistent, and the illustrations are informative...[this book] provides encyclopedic coverage on glial cells and will be a good reference for investigators in neurobiology and libraries." -JAMA


"The book is a must for all medical and science libraries. It is difficult to think of any important topic on glial cell biology that has been missed out in the book...Overall, the book is not only an ideal reference material for all graduate students in the field of medicine but also an essential companion for all researchers in the field of neuroscience."--Journal of Clinical Neuroanatomy
