About this book

It is well known that the CNS is normally protected from immune effectors because of the potential of irreversible damage to the nervous tissue. Nevertheless, there are situations where immune responses occur in the CNS due to different disease processes. Some of these responses are purely pathogenic while others clear or contain disease causing pathogens. In this volume, the mechanisms responsible for the varied outcomes are compared and contrasted.
