“This is a comprehensive text that includes a wealth of information on a very wide range of subjects. It will, of course, appeal to veterinary pathologists and neurotoxicologists, but it will also serve as a very good guide for diagnostic neuropathologists or histopathologists entering the world of toxicological or pharmacological research.” (The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists, 1 October 2012)
“Overall this is a long awaited, extremely useful book which should be on the shelf of all pathologists, toxicologists and students working in the field of neurotoxicology or pathology. “ (British Toxicology Society Newsletter, 1 June 2012)
“This exceptional, high quality book will greatly benefit its intended audience.” (Doody’s, 4 May 2012)
From the Back Cover
Grasp the fundamentals behind neuropathology
Fundamental Neuropathology for Pathologists and Toxicologists: Principles and Techniques provides an introduction to the discipline and techniques of neuropathology. Aimed not only at pathologists and toxicologists, but more broadly at comparative neurotoxicologists, environmental scientists, students, and other experts working in the scientific and medical worlds as well, the book is an invaluable guide to understanding diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
With a focus on the practical applications of assessing chemical toxicity, the book addresses both the fundamentals of neuropathology, and provides detailed coverage of current practices in anatomic, biochemical, clinical, and molecular analyses. In addition, it examines the practical aspects of neuropathology, such as study design data interpretation, regulatory considerations, and tips for preparing reports.
Describing the intricacies of the nervous system and the standard testing procedures that help toxicologists make neuropathological evaluations, Fundamental Neuropathology for Pathologists and Toxicologists is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the chemical, environmental, biological, medical, and regulatory details important for analyzing toxicant-induced neurodiseases.
