Book Description

Neurotrophic Factors is devoted to neurotrophic factors and explores aspects of their structure, the regulation of their synthesis, the way in which they influence neuronal survival and differentiation, and the mechanisms of their action on a variety of neurons. The book emphasizes the importance of all these neurotrophic factors in the development and maintenance of the nervous system and highlights many important, unanswered questions. It will be an significant reference for all researchers in neuroscience.
