In this revised and expanded second edition, seasoned experts describe in step-by-step detail their best state-of-the-art techniques for studying neuronal cell death. These readily reproducible methods solve a wide variety of research problems, including the detection of the key proteins involved in neuronal apoptosis (Bax protein, cytochrome c, and caspases), the direct assessment of the role of pro-apoptotic proteins in neurons by viral infections and microinjections, and the detection of pro-apoptotic proteins in situ. There are also hands-on methods for the study of apoptosis mechanisms in neuronal compartments, for studying synaptosis, and for establishing gene expression profiles in neurodegenerative brain tissues by using DNA microarrays.

Editorial Reviews

Review of the first edition:"The book is useful for an actively working neuroscientist who is going to study apotosis and has enough experience to choose the most suitable models and protocols among all the diverse offerings of the book." Three Stars. -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "...the book has updated many of the state-of-the-art techniques for analysis of neuronal apoptosis. More importantly, the book also offers the first-hand and step-by-step experimental details for molecular, cellular, biochemical and immunohistochemical assays of neuronal apoptotic death." - Biotechnic & Histochemistry
