Animal models of neurological disease by A. A Boulton( )

20 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of animal models continues to be the most reliable way of studying pathophysiologic mechanisms as well as treatments for neurological disorders. In two companion volumes, Animal Models of Neurological Disease highlights new information and techniques available in this rapidly growing area. This volume of Neuromethods focuses on commonly studied neurodegenerative diseases, highlighting the similarities and differences between the human condition and that obtained using animal models. Chapters are contributed by experts in the field and cover a variety of topics, including: the ethics of using animal models Alzheimer's disease Huntington's disease Parkinson s disease Lesch-Nyhan disease genetic and nongenetic demyelinating diseases cerebellar ataxias rodent and primate models surgical lesions neurotoxins. Boulton, Baker, and Butterworth's important new treatise on Animal Models of Neurological Disease is an outstanding guide for all researchers striving for a better understanding of neurological disease

Neuropsychology by A. A Boulton( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to understand how the human brain functions, one must first understand its structure and mechanics. This exciting collection of methods offers proven techniques for productive work in this fast-paced field. Contributors-all widely known for their mastery of the major methods described here-have been specially selected to share their knowledge in this volume
Molecular neurobiological techniques by A. A Boulton( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It goes without saying that the principles and techniques of molecular biology are having and will continue to have a major impact on investigations into nervous system structure and func tion. It is becoming increasingly apparent to neuroscientists in all subdisciplines that a working knowledge of the language, approaches, and techniques of molecular biology is indispensable for their work. For these reasons, the editors have decided to devote this volume of Neuromethods to the techniques of molecular biology and their application to neural systems. There currently exist a number of excellent reference technical manuals that de scribe molecular neurobiological techniques in great detail, and many of these are cited within the chapters included in this volume. It was not the intention of the editors or authors of this volume to duplicate these efforts. Rather, our intention was to present to the neuroscientist who is relatively unfamiliar with these methodologies an understanding of how specific techniques are used to approach major molecular neurobiological problems as well as a set of techniques that work in the laboratories of the individuals writing the chapters. In some cases, there are duplica tions of techniques these have been retained to illustrate the range of variability of the technique and/or the flexibility of the method to study different types of problems. We hope that the chapters will provide the reader with an understanding of the methods and their applicability to neurobiological problems; and, perhaps, suggest new directions for the reader's research efforts.

Patch-clamp applications and protocols by A. A Boulton( )

17 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E. Neher and B. Sakman were the first to monitor the opening and closing of single ion channels and membranes by conductance measurements. In 1976, they used firepolished micropipets with a tip diameter of 3-5 pm to record currents from a small patch of the membranbe of sk- etal muscles, thereby decreasing background membrane noise. In order to reduce the dominant source of background noise-the leakage shunt under the pipet rim between m- the muscle membrane had to be treated brane and gla- enzymatically. Despite these early limitations, a new te- nique was born -the patch-clamp technique. The final bre- through came in 1981 when the same authors, in collaboration with 0. P. Hamill, A. Marty, and F. J. Sigworth, developed the gigaohm seal. Not only did this improve the quality of recordings, it was now possible to gently pull the membrane patch with the attached pipet off the cell and study its trapped ion channels in isolation. Another offshoot of the gigaohm seal technique was the whole-cell patch-clamp technique, in which the patch is ruptured without breaking the seal. This technique is really a sophisticated voltage-clamp technique and also allows for the altering of cytoplasmic constituents if the experimenter so wishes. The first part of Patch-Clamp Applications and Protocols presents modern developments associated with the techn- ogy of patch-clamp electrodes, of cell-free ion channel reco- ing, and of the whole-cell patch-clamp technique

Cell neurobiology techniques by A. A Boulton( )

16 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cell Neurobiology Techniques is the second work updating and expanding the best-selling inaugural volume of Humana Press's warmly received Neuromethods series, General Neurochemical Techniques (vol. 1). The cutting-edge techniques detailed in this new edition include those that are particularly popular in multidisciplinary neuroscience research. There are readily reproducible methods for establishing neural cell cultures, measuring enzymes and their inhibitors, and using quantitative autoradiography to study monoamine uptake sites and receptors in the brain. Additional methods cover the use of flow cytometry to study developmental neurobiology, applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to human brain metabolism, and the study of drug metabolism. The companion volumes, In Vivo Neuromethods and In Vitro Neurochemical Techniques, review both in vivo methods and in vitro neurochemical and molecular neurobiological approaches. Like the original, all three cutting-edge works will prove exceptionally useful to those basic and clinical neuroscientists who want to expand the range of their current research or develop competence in complementary methods
Psychopharmacology by A. A Boulton( )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of drug effects on behavior is truly a confluence of streams of neuroscience research. The material in this volume covers a broad range of methodology representative of practically the entire scope of psychopharmacology for conscious animals. The contributions in this book represent careful evaluations by experts who were invited to participate because of their excellent practical application of research design and methodology. In each case, a particularly useful and well-written contribution has been forthcoming, and should serve either as a valuable introduction to developing researchers or as a practical reference to those active in the field. The material is arranged in an intuitive hierarchy. This arrangement is based on what are ostensibly increasing levels of integrated activity of the nervous system and, therefore, increasing levels of behavioral integration. Nevertheless, as all of the areas covered are rather detailed in their levels of intrinsic complexity, this arrangement of chapters does not imply successively more intricate problems. The reader will find some overlap between chapters, but little interdependence, i.e., each may be read as a separate or as an integral part of the volume
