Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book incorporates the results of some of the most prominent research in the field of molecular biology and neural tumors. The main purpose is to address the current understanding of the molecular biology, genetics, and triggering factors involved in the development, recurrence, and malignant transformation potential of neural tumors. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, geneticists, and neuroscientists are all appropriate audiences for this book. . the book is well written, understandable, and well illustrated and referenced. It is an excellent source of information." (Celso Agner, Doody's Review Service, September, 2008)
