What the Book Offers:
— provides a current review of the disease, from its neuropathological and clinical bases to diagnostic challenges and therapeutic interventions.
Contributors discuss the mutations in genes encoding proteins such as ?-synuclein, parkin, and LRRK2 that cause Parkinson’s disease; the roles of mitochondria, autophagy, protein quality control, and programmed cell death in disease progression; and the chemistry and anatomy of the basal ganglia that are affected. The use of functional neuroimaging and experimental models to probe the neurobiology of Parkinson’s disease are also described
–designed specifically to bridge the clinical and basic science aspects of Parkinson’s disease under one cover.
For who is the Book:
Neurobiologists, cell biologists, and pathologists pursuing the biological basis of Parkinson’s disease, Scientists and Clinicians.Parkinson’s Disease
