Introduction

Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research – Central Nervous System presents the latest researches and clinical studies on the central nervous system (CNS). It covers a range of topics such as the development and pathophysiology of the brain and spinal cord, physiological sites of drug action in the CNS and clinical findings on drugs used to treat CNS defects due to injury or impaired development. In addition to clinical research on humans, the book also highlights other avenues of CNS medicine and research such as pain medicine, stem cell research, pharmacology, toxicology and translational models in animals.

The second volume of the series features chapters on the following topics:

- Nucleic acids as drugs for neurodegenerative diseases

- Cellular Cysteine Network (CYSTEINET)

- Non-motor Symptoms in Parkinson’s Disease and drug therapies

- Multi-modal pharmacological treatments for major depressive disorder
