With 130 contributors, 40 chapters, and more than 500 pages, The Textbook of Nanoneurosurgery provides state-of-the-art information on this quickly evolving field. It presents current information about nanoplatforms and their use in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroscience and neuroradiology. The text focuses on the educational gap across different disciplines, emphasizing the importance of integrating nanotechnology into clinical neurosurgery, neurology, neuroscience, and radiology/medicine. The textbook reviews currently available nanoplatforms developed for cancer imaging, drug delivery and therapeutics for neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, brain and spinal cord trauma, and brain cancers. It also provides links to online videos illustrating the different nanoplatforms that are being used in vivo and in vitro. Portions of the proceedings from this book will be provided to the Brain Mapping Foundation, which will be used for funding research in this field.
