The International Society of Neuropathology published five volumes in a series on the pathology and genetics of neurological disease between 1997 and 2005. A second edition of the 2003 volume initiates a new stage in the series, with a new editor and publisher. Neuropathologists from many countries provide succinct accounts of concepts and some details of the genetics and pathology underlying neurodegenerative diseases for pathologists, clinicians, and neuroscientists involved in research and in the diagnosis and care of patients with such diseases. They cover the basic mechanisms of neurodegeneration, Alzheimer's disease and aging, tauopathies, synucleinopathies, trinucleotide repeat disorders, prion disorders, frontotemporal lobal degeneration and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders.
