The second section discusses pathophysiological factors including ischemia, ionic changes, immune-inflammatory responses, neurotransmitter/neuromodulatory alterations, effects of lipid metabolism, astroglial responses and molecular mechanisms. The final section reviews treatments including experimental pharmacology, growth factors, regeneration, transplantation and clinical treatment.

"This is a well-written, multidisciplinary book that documents the results of extensive experience in neurotrauma. I believe clinical neurosurgeons can learn a lot about basic pathophysiology from the book. I also recommend [it] to researchers who work in this field." --M. Serdar Alp, MD,
Doody's Annual
