About this book

Comprehensive overview of different aspects of autophagy as it relates to neurodegenerative diseases. The pathogenesis of the main neurodegenerative disorders includes either the accumulation of altered or misfolded proteins or exposure to several toxics. Autophagy constitute one of the two principal cellular pathways implicate in the clearance of these material and can serve as a neuroprotective mechanism. Topics include: the role of autophagy in the brain, the role of autophagy in the principal neurodegenerative disorders, and the mechanism by which different molecules cause neurotoxicity and the role autophagy plays.

Reviews

“This is a very good book for students and researchers involved with biochemical and cellular pathways of immune responses after cell toxicity due to neurodegenerative processes. I highly recommend the book to neurologists, physiologists, and biochemists.” (Joseph J.  Grenier, Amazon.com, January, 2016)
