This unique volume provides interdisciplinary coverage of the mechanistic perspective of neurotoxicity that focuses on the site of action of known neurotoxins. It provides the reader with an insight into the common characteristics of neurotoxin action on the nervous system and examines sites of action at three levels of complexity: molecular, cellular, and brain, which will allow the development of more specific therapeutic and pharmacological rationales for treatment in the future. Site-Selective Neurotoxicity contains useful information for graduate students and academic and industrial researchers in the fields of toxicology, pharmacology, neurosciences and medicine.
Introduction. Molecular-Specific Actions. Cellular-Selective Toxicity. Tissue-Selective Toxicity.
