2 - 4 weeks availability
Human neurological and neuromuscular disorders caused by nucleotide expansion are the focus of growing interest of practicing physicians and of interested biomedical researchers. This volume represents a comprehensive and up-to-date description of many of the better-studied disorders. The authors discuss molecular, clinical and pathological aspects of the diseases as well as our current understanding of their underlying mechanisms.
