About this book


This volume provides a full explanation and technical details to perform surgical techniques properly on small and large animal models. The first six chapters of Experimental Neurosurgery in Animal Models focus primarily on the brain, while the next six chapters concern the spinal cord in rodents. The last four chapters provide a description of operative procedures in large animals. Written for the popular Neuromethods series, chapters include the kind of detail and key implementation advice that ensures successful results in the laboratory.

Authoritative and practical, Experimental Neurosurgery in Animal Models aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.

“This is an excellent sourcebook reference with respect to animal models of stroke, trauma, and neurodegenerative diseases. Rat models of Huntingtons, Parkinson’s, and epilepsy are discussed well. Sites for neurotoxin injections are diagrammed in a step by step approach. … A step by step approach is covered for each model introduced. This is a good book atlas for technicians, students, and research scientists.” (Joseph J. Grenier,, June, 2016)
