Cell, Tissue, and Organ Cultures in Neurobiology emerged from an international workshop held at the University of Saskatchewan in March 1977. This book reviews the uses of cell, tissue, and organ cultures in neurobiological research. It brings together an interdisciplinary perspective from morphology, biochemistry, pharmacology, endocrinology, embryology, and genetics.
The book is organized into seven parts. Part I contains papers on the characteristics of differentiated cells. Part II presents studies on cell differentiation in primary cultures. Part III deals with studies on cell cultures and cell strains. Part IV focuses on phenotypic cell expression. Part V examines various cellular interactions. Part VI covers studies on nutrition while Part VII takes up applications of cell tissue and organ cultures in neurobiology.
The book is directed toward tissue culturists concerned with the nervous system, as well as all neurobiologists, cell biologists, and embryologists interested in learning how neural cells and tissues behave in cultures and what has been learned about the nervous system using tissue culture methods, including the applicability of tissue cultures to the study of cell differentiation.
