Description

General description

Leading authorities provide the framework for development of research, from discovery of nerve growth factor to the state of knowledge today. Virtually all elements of neurotrophins are covered in this edition. This is the first comprehensive book on neurotrophins with a review of biologic action of each neurotrophin, discussion of relevance of each neurotrophin receptor, elucidation of neurotrophin signaling mechanisms, and description of neurotrophin mechanisms of action. It is a compendium of research findings with insight into the future direction of research.
