About this book

The Systems Biology of Parkinson’s Disease will be underpinned by new measurement techniques. This is particularly true of the pathology of Parkinson's Disease, where recent developments in brain imaging have offered new insights into the morphology of dopaminergic neurons that have profound implications for the special vulnerability and role of this class of neurons.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is based on the fascinating concept of applying systems biology … to understand how things work and apply this approach to the study of Parkinson’s disease. … The book is intended for Parkinson’s disease specialists and researchers, and it is best suited for researchers. It is well written by credible authorities in the field. … The book accomplishes its main goals without question. This is a novel approach to an important clinical condition.” (Joseph I. Sirven, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2012)
