This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and critical overview of the immunological aspects of autoimmune neurological disease. These diseases include common conditions such as multiple sclerosis, the Guillain-Barre syndrome, and myasthenia gravis. The book begins with chapters on antigen recognition and self-nonself recognition, and neuroimmunology, followed by chapters on specific diseases. For each disease, the authors cover clinical features, genetics, neuropathology, pathophysiology, immunology, and therapy. Each chapter summarizes key points and suggests directions for future research. The authors cover animal models of autoimmune neurological disease in detail because of their importance in understanding the human diseases.
