Parkinson's Disease Genetics and Pathogenesis
An authoritative collection of recent breakthroughs in Parkinson's Disease (PD) research, Parkinson’s Disease: Genetics and Pathogenesis spans key findings on the mechanisms of neurodegeneration and the role of specific genes that may lead to improved therapies for PD. The book reviews the major aspects of the disease including motoric and pathologic features, autonomic dysfunction, sleep disorders, and neuropsychiatric manifestations. It also provides an in-depth review of genetic considerations. With contributions by recognized experts on the topic, emphasis is placed on pathogenesis, experimental models, future therapeutic opportunities, and research trends affecting the field.
