Book News Annotation:
Provides a critical discussion of the molecular mechanisms that regulate the specification of neural progenitor cells and also of the therapeutic strategies currently being developed to replace neural cells in neurodegenerative disorders. Considers such aspects as the induction and generation of regional and cellular diversity in the developing mammalian brain, the genetic analysis of neuronal migration in the nematode, inducing neurodegeneration by deregulating of the neurofilament gene expression in transgenic mice, and using fetal mesencephalic grafts to treat MPTP-induced Parkinsonism. The 24 papers are contributed by basic and clinical scientists in molecular genetics, developmental neurobiology, and neuroregeneration.
