Neuroprotection is a topic of great importance in current neuroscience, both basic and clinical. The incidence of age-related neurodegenerative diseases could be expected to rise dramatically in the future owing to an aging population. Consequently, finding the means of retarding or preventing the progression of such diseases becomes increasingly important. This book focuses on basic perspective on neuroprotective approaches and scientists well recognized for their work have contributed chapters to this volume. Although findings on neuroprotection in the different pathologies become more and more frequent and detailed, it can be difficult for researchers to orient themselves in such a complicate field. For this reason, this book describes basic science discovery and the application of such research within different laboratories leading to the development of neuroprotective protocols. The main aim of this volume is thus to give an overview of methods used to study neuronal death and neuroprotection and to offer a really comprehensive step-by-step method in order to make clear not just the procedure but also the principles behind the use of it. At this purpose, the Notes section of each chapter represents a useful tool to solve technical problems and to help in reproducing the described methods.


Due to an aging population, the incidence of age-related neurodegenerative diseases is expected to rise dramatically.  In Neuroprotection Methods and Protocols, a team of skilled, renowned researchers provide step-by-step laboratory protocols intended to slow or prevent the progression of such diseases.  Focusing on neuroprotective approaches, this volume describes basic scientific discoveries and the application of such research within different laboratories in a clear and systematic way in order to orient scientists in this complicated field.  The chapters follow the Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, consisting of readily reproducible methods, lists of the necessary materials, and a Notes section which aids the researcher in solving and avoiding technical problems.

Comprehensive and easy to use, Neuroprotection Methods and Protocols is the perfect reference for basic neuroscientists hoping to move forward the ever-important field of neuroprotection and neuronal death research.
