Horizons in Neuroscience Research. Volume 7 $170.00
Editors: Andres Costa and Eugenio Villalba
Book Description:
This compilation presents original study results on the leading edge of neuroscience research. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. Included in this volume is the contribution effects of the putamen to cognitive function; temporal lobe pathology in neurodegenerative disease; evaluation of the dopaminergic disruption and astroglial activation in caudate-putamen triggered by methamphetamine abuse; renin-angiotensin system modulation functions in CPu; diagnostic utility of measures of variability in patients suffering from traumatic brain injury; and the assessment of dopaminergic function in Parkinson's disease by SPECT/PET. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
