Cell-Cycle Mechanismsand Neuronal Cell Death
by Agata Copani

Cell-Cycle Mechanismsand Neuronal Cell Death examines the role of cell cycle activation in the molecular mechanisms leading to neuronal degeneration.

Cell-Cycle Mechanismsand Neuronal Cell Death serves to gain new insights into the molecular determinants of neuronal death and to establish new targets for therapeutic intervention.
