Demonstrating the value of interactions between neurology and the basic sciences that underpin it, this volume considers a range of topics from the points of view of both neurobiologist and clinician and reveals how advances in our understanding have been and continue to be made. The coverage boasts an excellent section on the physiology and pathophysiology of central and peripheral nerve fibers and an in-depth view of motor control including the often ignored but vital respiratory movements. Also notable are the chapters on neuronal plasticity, and cell death and axonal regeneration: active areas in neuroscience, where new knowledge will almost certainly revolutionize neurological treatments in years to come.
