About this book

Neuroprotection and Regeneration of the Spinal Cord comprehensively covers the most recent research in the field of spinal cord injury. The first part of this book focuses on the latest animal models and clinically oriented work, providing extensive information on morphological factors and, biomechanical analysis, in addition to the mechanism of functional recovery. The book goes on to provide information on clinical relevance introducing analysis of spinal cord injuries using MRI and PET. Edited by renowned experts in the field, this book will provide clinical physicians, basic researchers and postgraduate students with valuable insight into the cutting-edge research and progress in the field of spinal cord injury, treatment and repair.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an excellent book covering the latest in the pathology, histology, animal models, and stem cell research regarding acute spinal cord damage. … There is a good audience to neurologists, neurosurgeons, research fellows, and medical students working in SCI Research. I highly recommend this book to all interested audiences.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, March, 2014)
