Immune and Inflammatory Responses in the Nervous System

Nancy Rothwell and Sarah Loddick

Abstract

This new edition covers advances in understanding immunological and inflammatory responses in the nervous system, research driven by the potential to use knowledge of the molecules and mechanisms involved to intervene in, and arrest, neurodegenerative disease processes. This book covers developmental aspects of immune/inflammatory responses in the central nervous system (CNS), basic aspects of glial function, as well as inflammatory mediators, their mechanisms of action, clinical importance, and sites of infection. There is also coverage of the major diseases of the CNS, including stroke, brai ... More

Keywords: immunological responses, inflammatory responses, nervous system, neurodegenerative disease, glial function, inflammatory mediators, action mechanisms, clinical importance, infection sites, stroke
