Metabolic Encephalopathy is meant to combine and correlate animal and human studies. It is hoped that increased awareness of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of these disorders may result in a lowering of the incidence of structural changes and morbidity. These disorders hold a special fascination for both basic scientists and clinical investigators because they are accessible, treatable and there exists good animal models for study. Therefore, this book will pull together basic and clinical neuroscience issue in the treatment of specific metabolic encephalopathies.
Considers both animal and human studies, and integrates them into statements of mechanisms and biochemical alterations and treatments
Contains the most commonly seen metabolic encephalopathies and those in which the diagnosis and treatment have advanced and benefited from technological studies
Will be of interest to both researchers and clinicians
