Choroid Plexus and Cerebrospinal Fluid : Emerging Roles in Cns Development, Maintenance, and Disease
about this item
The Choroid Plexus and Cerebrospinal Fluid: Emerging Roles in CNS Development, Maintenance, and Disease Progression combines new and established work to allow for cross-disciplinary discussion and showcase newfound excitement surrounding the choroid plexus and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This book is of great utility to neuroscientists interested in biological questions about cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, choroid plexus, or CSF research, and especially for researchers looking to expand their research into later stages of their disease of interest, such as metastasis. No other resource is currently available which addresses these issues in this fashion. The focus on the choroid plexus provides a practical resource on modeling clinical issues influenced by this brain region for researchers from students to principal investigators.
- Presents recent progress made in the research of choroid plexus and cerebrospinal fluid across multi-disciplinary fields, including neuroscience, cancer biology, and immunology
- Includes numerous illustrations of light, fluorescent, and electron micrographs
- Provides data analysis boxes in each chapter to help with data interpretation and offer guidelines on how best to represent results
- Includes chapters written by prominent researchers in the field
