Spinal Interneurons: Plasticity after Spinal Cord Injury provides neuroscientists, clinicians and trainees a reference book exclusively concentrating on spinal interneurons and the techniques and experiments employed to identify and study these cells as part of normal, diseased and injured neural circuits. In addition, the book highlights the therapeutic potential of these cells by presenting relevant pre-clinical and clinical work that has been performed. The book's focus on the latest in therapeutic strategies for targeting spinal interneurons, considerations for the development and use of treatments, and how such treatments work make this a comprehensive source of information. Provides a comprehensive overview of the techniques used to identify, characterize and classify spinal interneurons and their role in neural circuits Presents an in-depth discussion of the therapeutic potential of spinal interneurons for SCI injury and/or disease Represents the first book to discuss spinal interneurons and translational research

"The William Townsend Porter memorial volume": v. 158.
This clinically oriented textbook on nervous system structure and function offers medical students a sound basis for clinical thinking. It provides clear, concise descriptions of brain structures and their functional properties, incorporating data from molecular biology, clinical neurology and psychobioloby. Thoroughly revised and updated, the Second Edition goes further than the first in integrating material from all fields of neuroscience and in discussing brain-behavior relationships. There are two new chapters: one on development, aging and plasticity of the nervous system, the other on the general features of sensory receptors. New material covers cortical processing and its imaging, consciousness and sleep, cognitive functions of the cerebellum, the functional organization of the basal forebrain, pain, clinical disturbances of the somatosensory system, color vision, and cerebral lateralization. In addition, the text has been reorganized to improve its clarity within the chapters on the hypothalamus, the peripheral autonomic nervous system, and the cerebral cortex. About 30 new illustrations have been included, and the book's format has been redesigned.
