Brain Slices in Basic and Clinical Research describes advancements in the field of brain function and dysfunction through use of central nervous system slice preparations. Topics are authored by leading scientists and include the following:
Mechanisms of synaptic plasticity as the basis of memory processes
Chaos and synaptic variability
Brain calcium currents
Glutamate receptors
Pathophysiology of excitotoxins
Cerebral hypoxia-ischemia
Neuronal injury
Free radicals
Optical methods of measuring brain metabolism
Voltammetry in brain slices
Calcium imaging
Patch-clamp recording and application of macromolecules through patch-clamp pipettes in brain slices
Intracellular double labeling of various neuronal populations
Use of brain slices in teaching neurophysiological methods
Most of the topics are published in book format for the first time, and some of the techniques are more fully detailed than in any other book.
