Animal Models of Epilepsy: Methods and Innovations by Cody J. Locke, Kim A. Caldwell, Guy A. Caldwell (auth.),

By Cody J. Locke, Kim A. Caldwell, Guy A. Caldwell (auth.), Scott C. Baraban (eds.)

With its advanced anatomical, molecular, electrophysiological and behavioral parts, epilepsy offers the neuroscientist with approximately boundless possibilities to ascertain uncomplicated neurobiological mechanisms. In Animal types of Epilepsy: tools and Innovations, admired investigators within the box learn a number of novel types of epilepsy in mice in addition to in genetically tractable "simple" species resembling Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies), Caenorhabditis elegans (worms), Xenopus laevis (tadpoles) and Danio rerio (zebrafish). whereas masking a few conventional versions, the amount additionally explores the latest techniques like modeling seizure job in silica and complicated suggestions for seizure detection and gene treatment. As a quantity within the profitable Neuromethods™ sequence, the chapters offer transparent, step by step protocols and thought-provoking stories of the newest developments within the field.

Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Animal types of Epilepsy: tools and Innovations is a perfect consultant for scientists who desire to extend our realizing of the pathogenesis of this neurological disorder.
