Abstract

Neurobiology of Disease includes nearly 200 brief but substantial survey chapters on all the major disorders of the nervous system in both adults and children from the perspective of cutting edge neurobiology that is relevant to diagnosis and treatment. The chapters are written mostly by clinicians who are experts and thought leaders in their fields, and who are also active participants in clinical and/or basic research. Readers can find information about recent discoveries that are having a clinical impact, as well as reliable information about the new genetic discoveries that are driving diagnosis as well as being targets for therapeutic research. The book’s editors, Michael Johnston at Johns Hopkins and the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and Harold Adams at the University of Iowa, are respected international authorities in pediatric neurology and adult neurology, respectively, with substantial records of teaching and scholarship. Ali Fatemi, who trained in pediatric neurology and neurogenetics at Massachusetts General and is head of the Moser Center for Leukodystrophies, brings expertise in clinical and research neurogenetics to the editorial team.
