In Neuroglia in Alzheimer's Disease, the authors provide a broad overview of glial physiology and pathophysiology, outline glial contribution to neurodegeneration and concentrate on the role of different classes of neuroglial cells in the progression and outcome of Alzheimer's disease. The authors discuss the critical vie of AD and argue for glial cells as new targets for therapy of neurodegenerative disorders. This book is valuable researchers, clinicians, postdocs, and graduate students in the fields of neurobiology, neurology and psychiatry.
