Book Description

This unique reference presents studies from leading laboratories that are studying the effects of CNS transplants on neuronal plasticity and recovery of function after CNS injury. Topics covered include tropic influences, reinnervation patterns, and prevention of cell death that range from pre-clinical models of Parkinson's disease in primates to studies of restoration of circadian rhythms in rats. Techniques of neurotransplantation are presented, including current limitations and future projections of advancement.
