This book looks at the role of proteases, which are enzymes that digest proteins, and the various roles that proteases play in the development of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, ALS, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, as well as numerous other neuromuscular diseases.
Dr. Lajtha is the editor of the Journal of Neurochemical Research.
