Neuroprotection in Autism, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer's Disease Book Summary
Some shared pathophysiological mechanisms underlie autism, schizophrenia/mood disorders and Alzheimer's disease, i.e. neurodevelopmental disorders, neuropsychiatric diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. With the rapid advancement of molecular genetics including single cell analysis and detailed molecular characteristics, scientists have the opportunity to follow up on novel mechanistic aspects and offer a novel perspective for the treatments. Neuroprotection in Autism, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer's Disease provides an up-to-date overview of basic and clinical studies concerning similarities in the most prevalent brain disorders, shedding light on basic mechanisms and providing for new avenues for early diagnosis toward disease prevention and disease modification. It is a collaborative effort between basic scientists, clinicians and educators and will open new horizons for the future researchers, medical professional and society at large. This book is written for researchers, clinicians, and medical physicians in neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry.
