Neuromuscular Junction Disorders

This volume provides concise and comprehensive information on neuromuscular disorders, including rapid advancements in the understanding of the neurobiology of neuromuscular transmission. In addition, clinicians will find timely discussions on the various forms of these disorders that have been discovered due to increased study within the field. New observations into the immunopathogenesis of myasthenia gravis, and the molecular mechanisms underlying the links between activity and patterns of gene expression, particularly in muscle, are also explored, along with novel information on the understanding of the pathophysiology of the heterogeneous group of peripheral nerve hyperexcitability syndromes. Each of these valuable insights, and their accompanying explanations, provides a framework on which new therapeutic strategies can be built to aid in the enhancement and restoration of normal function in neuromuscular junction disorders. * New insights into the study of neuromuscular junction disorders, including rapid advancements in the field * Comprehensive information on the neuromuscular junction, and a detailed examination of myasthenia gravis and other disorders * A new framework upon which to build therapeutic strategies that will enhance the restoration of normal function in neuromuscular disorders
