Om Role of Glia in Neurotoxicity

Presenting the latest research in glial cell function gleaned from new techniques in imaging and molecular biology, The Role of Glia in Neurotoxicity, Second Edition covers multiple aspects of glial cells, including morphology, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, pathology, and their involvement in the pathophysiology of neurological diseases. The book is structured to examine the interactions between glial cells and neurons during development, adulthood, and senescence, followed by specific examples of directly mediated glial neurotoxicity. The book also covers miscellaneous topics in glial physiology/biochemistry such as signaling and edema. The book includes coverage of advances in our knowledge and understanding of glial physiology and biochemistry. Discover what's new in the Second Edition:Neuronal-glia metabolic interactionsNeuronal-glia interactions (glutamate homeostasis)Zinc transporters in gliaEnergy deprivation/mitochondrial dysfunction - unique astrocyte susceptibilitiesAstrocytes and MPTP neurotoxicityAstroglia and food toxinsCurrent understanding of the importance of glia has caused a boom in published information. Yet while many of the published textbooks are multifaceted and multidisciplinary, none includes the role of glia in neurotoxicity. Written by leaders in the field of glial research, this text fills this missing gap in the literature. Broader in scope than the first edition, including contributions from internationally known researchers, this is still the only book dedicated to exploring the role of glial cells in mediating neurotoxicology.FeaturesSummarizes the latest research in glial cell function gleaned from new techniques in imaging and molecular biologyContains tables and figures that give you quick and easy access to precise dataIncludes a contemporary summary of literature that puts information useful for grant submissions at your fingertipsFeatures new chapters covering metabolic interactions, glutamate homeostasis, transporters, energy deprivation/mitochondrial dysfunction, astrocytes, and food toxins Explores the role of glial cells in mediating neurotoxicity and incorporates information on specific effects of many compounds
