Oxidative Stress and Age-Related Neurodegeneration (Oxidative Stress and Disease)

Buy

Despite the progress being made by researchers, Alzheimer’s disease, along with other age-related neurodegenerative disorders, continues to exact a tremendous toll on our society. However, we are beginning to see a relationship that ties degenerative disorders to oxidative stress and lifestyle, suggesting the possibility for prevention and intervention through changes of individual habits, especially with regard to diet.

Oxidative Stress and Age-Related Neurodegeneration brings together expert researchers involved with recent developments across a variety of fields. In looking at causation, prevention, and therapy, they offer contributions addressing these questions:

  • What similarities and differences exist between normal aging and disease-related neurodegeneration in terms of susceptibility to and effects of oxidative stress?
  • How can oxidative stress or its effects be attenuated?
  • Do antioxidants prevent or slow the progress of the disease?
  • Is there any role for natural micronutrients in the attenuation of oxidative stress and prevention of age-related neurodegeneration?

Some chapters look at the various ways research is getting to the core of neurodegenerative disease, including the use of proteomics, comparisons to related diseases, and examinations at the cellular and molecular levels. Other chapters focus on specific antioxidants and nutrients cited as being impactful, such as those found in Gingko biloba, green tea, blueberries, and grape seed extract.

Researchers in academia, industry, and clinical medicine, as well as students and scholars will find use for this timely collection, either as an introduction to our current understanding of neurodegeneration or as a reference for further research. Clinicians will also benefit, as this book explains the basis for many of the latest approaches to prevention and therapy.

As a young man, this career shift wasn’t entirely motivated by a need to restore the right-left hemisphere balance to my young brain; it may also have had something to do with the worry that knowing a lot about Alan Turing and C++ was probably not the best way to get a girlfriend.

Cardiac Perfusion and Pumping Engineering (Clinically-Oriented Biomedical Engineering)

Cardiac pumping is dependent on cardiac perfusion. Hence, it is only natural that we address both cardiac perfusion and pumping in this book. We have gone one step further in also considering assisted perfusion by coronary bypass surgery and myocardial regeneration by means of stem cells transformed into implantable cardiomyocytes. The book...

Near-Death Experiences: Heavenly Insight or Human Illusion?

The expression "Near-Death Experience" is associated in the popular understanding with access to knowledge about our transition between the states of life and death. But how should such experiences be interpreted? Are they verifiable with scientific methods? If so, how can they be explained? Attempting to relate matters of...
