About this book

Cell Adhesion Molecules: Implications in Neurological Diseases contains review articles on recent developments in the field of neural cell adhesion molecules (CAMs). The main focus is on the role of cell adhesion molecules in various neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. This perspective has been essentially overlooked in recently published books on neural CAMs. In addition, the contributors cover many newly identified cell adhesion molecules and some that have not received much attention in recent years. This books fills an important gap in the currently available literature. ​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is a comprehensive review of neural and glial cell adhesion molecules and their relationships to neurological disorders. … I highly recommend this book to all audiences without any reservations.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2014)
