About

Overview

This issue reviews the role of metals in neurodegenerative diseases; including Parkinson's and Huntington's disease; restless leg syndrome and NBIA disorders; and Wilson's disease and manganese and calcium accumulation disorders. An update on advances in neuroimaging and pathology of metal related diseaseĀ is also presented. This volume of International Review of Neurobiology brings together cutting-edge research on metal related neurodegenerative disease. It reviews the role of metals in neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's and Huntington's disease; restless leg syndrome and NBIA disorders; and Wilson's disease and manganese and calcium accumulation disorders.
