About this book


This volume explores methods used to examine metal levels and distribution in brain tissue or brain-derived cells. The chapters in this book discuss the use of fluorescent metal probes, synchrotron-based X-ray microscopy, ICP-MS, laser ablation-ICP-MS, laser-based tissue microdissection, MRI image analysis, fractionation of cell tissue samples for metal analysis, and metal treatment of cells. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your own laboratory.

Practical and cutting-edge, Metals in the Brain: Measurement and Imaging is a valuable resource for researchers in the rapidly growing area of neuroscience research.
