Ed. by Jun Chen et al.

Humana Press Inc.


498 pages




This manual of reproducible protocols focuses on animal models currently used for assessing acute neurological injury associated with ischemia, subarachnoid and intraparenchymal hemorrhage, and traumatic brain injury to the brain and spinal cord. Each chapter reviews the relevant history of the respective animal model and details specific steps in animal model preparation and use. Step-by- step working procedures are included, along with color photos and schematic drawings. The book is for students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinical and basic scientists studying neurological disorders. Material is accessible enough so that even inexperienced researchers will be able to use the manual as a guide to produce a reliable animal model for clinical or basic science research. Chen teaches at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
