Diseases Virtual Issue

Diseases Virtual Issue

The following selections demonstrate some of the content Wiley-Blackwell Neuroscience has to offer in the area of “Diseases” including journal articles, Current Protocols papers and book chapters. As it relates to this virtual issue, the theme of diseases encompasses all research that furthers our understanding of progression and treatment of nervous system diseases, disorders and injury.

Topics covered include developmental diseases, normal and diseased aging, neurodegenerative diseases, addiction, obesity, genetic/ epigenetic contributors to disease, psychiatric disorders, traumatic brain injury and repair, stroke, and oxidative stress.

The reviews and original research articles highlighted in this virtual issue use a range of techniques to study the onset and progression of disease and develop advances in prevention and treatment. These techniques span MRI, clinical trials, animal models, cell culture, molecular biology.
