Neurodegeneration is the gradual loss of synaptic integration, neuronal structure, and function. Common Neurodegenerative Diseases include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. Handbook of Neurodegenerative Disorders: Mechanism, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Advances provides a comprehensive review on the current biomedical studies aimed at identifying the underlying causes of neurodegeneration. This book reviews the most recent developments in molecular and cellular processes altered during neurodegeneration. Divided into four parts, the first covers the mechanism of cell death in neurodegeneration. The second section reviews the recent progress in gene and gene products in neurodegeneration, including Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Friedreich' s ataxia, and spinal muscular atrophy. The final sections cover the current and future diagnostic techniques of neurodegenerative disorders along with therapeutic approaches.
