Synopsis:

Recent advances in cell biology have allowed researchers to breakdown the barrier between cell types. This has unlocked the potential of converting somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells, introducing a valuable new tool to basic science and biomedical researchers. Neuroscientists are now rapidly adopting these technologies to better understand neurophysiology and the development of disease.  Neural Cell Reprogramming provides a timely overview and synthesis of this work.

Neural Cell Reprogramming opens with chapters that introduce the basic concepts of cellular reprogramming and the application of these technologies to neuronal cells. Coverage then explores advances in the field and the potential application of reprogramming technologies in fields ranging from basic neuroscience research into drug discovery and the development of novel therapeutics. The book closes with a valuable chapter exploring the ethical questions and issues surrounding the use of reprogrammed cells in research.

A timely and valuable volume, Neural Cell Reprogramming is an essential book for anyone working in the fields of neuroscience, stem cell biology, and neurotherapuetics.
