Neurobiology of Infectious Diseases covers mechanisms underlying infectious diseases. It is divided into six distinct sections, beginning with the foundations of Neuroinfection. This section includes chapters on the role microbiota-gut-brain axis and specialized blood-neuronal barriers play in neurobiology of infectious diseases. The next three sections detail various bacterial infections, parasitic infections, viral infections, and fungal infections of the central nervous system. The last section reviews the proteins and other peripheral mediators that affect the central nervous system. Internationally contributed by experts in the field this book sets the foundation of neurobiology and infectious disease.

Neurobiology is the study of cells of the nervous system and the organization of these cells into functional circuits that process information and mediate behavior. Current research is vital for determining pharmaceutical and medicinal treatments for neurological disorders, psychiatric disorders and diseases.
