Book Title: Animal Models of Acute Neurological Injuries II

Author: Jun Chen

Book Description:

The scientific investigation, and subsequent understanding, of the central nervous system has expanded significantly over my collegiate and professional life. No organ is more complex and injury to the central nervous system is arguably the most devastating condition faced by patient, clinician, and basic scientist. In addition to the obvious loss of cognitive, locomotor, and/or sensory function, individuals with neurological injuries often present other physiological changes that are only marginally recognized and understood. This book represents "square one" for everybody starting in my lab and underscores the similarities and differences regarding neurological injury. Several generations of successful scientific careers will likely pass before we can fully understand, and treat, the consequences of central nervous system trauma.
