Neuroprotection
Models, Mechanisms and Therapies
edited by

Neuroprotection provides a comprehensive treatment of neuroprotective strategies for all important neurological disorders.

Following an overview of neurodegenerative, traumatic, and ischemic disorders, Neuroprotection goes on to cover in vitro and animal model systems as well as cellular and molecular mechanisms.
