Peripheral nerve disorders are among the most common neurological problems that clinicians face, yet few therapies and interventions are available to arrest or reverse the damage associated with them. Summarising this important, but neglected, area of neuroscience, Doug Zochodne addresses the peripheral nervous system and its unique neurobiology. He summarises current basic ideas about the molecular mechanisms involved in both nerve degeneration and regeneration and what approaches can be used to address it experimentally. Heavily illustrated throughout, and including a 32 page colour plate section, this book will serve as a valuable reference for academic researchers and graduate students.
