9780128017401: The Choroid Plexus and Cerebrospinal Fluid: Emerging Roles in CNS Development, Maintenance, and Disease Progression

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) functions to bathe the brain and spinal cord and is vital for the maintenance of fluid homeostasis within the central nervous system (CNS). The production of CSF by the choroid plexus is tightly regulated, providing the necessary nutrients and removing waste that may compromise the normal homeostasis of the CNS. Though growth factors and neuropeptide hormones produced and secreted by the choroid plexus are known to play critical roles in CNS homeostasis, the choroid plexus and CSF have been one of the most understudied tissues in neuroscience.

Recent work has begun to elucidate how the choroid plexus and CSF regulate development and disease in ways that extend far beyond traditional neurobiology roles. This book presents novel and exciting findings in the area of the choroid plexus and CSF in brain development and introduces its link to multiple disease disciplines, including cancer biology and neurodegeneration. Each chapter is written by an expert in his/her field and provides a comprehensive review of the anatomy, development, structure, and function of the choroid plexus and CSF in the nervous system, with particular focus on multiple disease disciplines, including primary brain tumours, metastases, Multiple Sclerosis, and Alzheimer's Disease. This book provides a link between the choroid plexus, the clinical problems arising from its dysfunction, and investigational approaches and techniques that will help foster future research with high translational value.

The Choroid Plexus and Cerebrospinal Fluid 1e combines new and established work to allow for cross-disciplinary discussion and showcase newfound excitement surrounding the choroid plexus and CSF. This book is of great utility to neuroscientists interested in biological questions about cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, choroid plexus, or CSF research, and especially for researchers looking to expand their research into later stages of their disease of interest, such as metastasis. The focus on the choroid plexus provides a practical resource on modeling clinical issues influenced by this brain region for researchers from students to principal investigators. No other resource is currently available which addresses these issues in this fashion, and so this volume fills a much needed niche in the literature.



    * Presents recent progress made in the research of choroid plexus and cerebrospinal fluid across multi-disciplinary fields, including neuroscience, cancer biology, immunology

    * Numerous illustrations of light, fluorescent, and electron micrographs

    * Data Analysis boxes in each chapter help with data interpretation and offer guidelines on how best to represent results

    * Includes chapters written by prominent researchers in the field

    About the Author:

    Dr. Josh Neman completed his doctoral training in neurobiology at UCLA where he studied the development of oligodendrocytes from embryonic stem cells. Dr. Neman then chose to pursue his postdoctoral fellowship at City of Hope, where it would enable him to solidify the bridge between bench to bedside care for cancer patients. His current research investigates the biology of glioblastoma multiforme and breast to brain metastases. Dr. Neman's expertise and strengths in stem cells, glial biology, neural development, synaptic plasticity, and trauma, have allowed for the development of novel approaches to study the brain and tumor microenvironment ---a vantage point that is currently lacking in the field of brain metastases. His research studies have established that the physiologic microenvironment of the brain must become a tumor-favorable microenvironment for successful metastatic colonization by circulating breast cancer cells. Dr. Neman has more than 30 peer reviewed original research articles (in PNAS, PLoS One, Spine, Neurosurgery, and Developmental Neurobiology), reviews, abstracts, and book chapters to his name. He is currently in process of co-editing the second edition of "Clinical Cases: Neuroscience” which is scheduled to be published in late 2014. Moreover, he has been recipient of research awards from NIH-NCI and California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

    Dr. Chen is currently Professor of Neurological Surgery and Pathology at the University of Southern California. Highly experienced in the area of translational research aimed at the development of clinical trials and novel therapeutics for malignant brain tumours, he is the head of the Glioma Research Group at USC. He completed his neurological surgery residency and PhD in pathobiology at the University of Southern California, followed by fellowship training in spinal surgery from the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Chen is a physician, a board certified neurosurgeon, and the Director of Surgical Neuro-oncology - recognized both for his skills as a neurosurgeon and his cutting edge research examining glioma biology.
