Summary "Interactions between the immune and nervous systems are involved in many disease processes. Modulation of inflammation can provide an important opportunity to enhance regeneration within the central nervous system. This authoritative book defines the key cellular players in mounting an inflammatory response and highlights critical factors in the target organ that influence the nature of that response and its capacity either to damage or protect the brain. Several key clinical areas are highlighted - particularly autoimmune diseases of the nervous system including multiple sclerosis, as well as microbiological and traumatic challenges; the book therefore provides both a summary of the basic science background as well as practical, clinical-friendly guidelines to management. The book will be of interest to a wide range of physicians, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurorehabilitationists, infectious disease physicians, and clinical neuroscientists, as well as neuroscientists and immunologists"--Provided by publisher.
