This volume looks into the need for a variety of experimental models for research on traumatic brain injury (TBI) and peripheral nervous system. It also describes a number of experimental models, such as mechanical devices, that have been developed to model neurotrauma in animal experiments. The overall aim of this book is to explore the variety of models and how they are used in current research. The chapters in this book are organized in four sections and talk about animal models for TBI; animal models for spinal cord or nerve injury; and translational aspects, secondary injuries, in vitro studies, and evaluation of large data sets. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.
Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Animal Models of Neurotrauma is a valuable resource for researchers interested in expanding their knowledge and research in this developing field.
• Includes cutting-edge methods and protocols
