Sensory Neuropathies

While motor neuropathies and neuronopathies and mixed sensory-motor neuropathies have been met with adequate interest by clinical and basic researchers and physicians, pure sensory neuropathies and neuronopathies have received comparably less attention, despite of the considerable morbidity they may cause in the individual patient. In this volume, a faculty of experienced authorities in the field gives an overview on the physiology, pharmacology, pathology, and clinical signs and symptoms of the sensory nervous system. In addition, specific aspects of morphometry, clinical testing, disease classification, experimental models, and metabolic, infectious and immune-mediated disorders including AIDS are addressed in more detail. The contributions of this volume represent a valuable reference for clinical, physiological, biochemical and pathomorphological studies on the sensory nervous system for which similarly comprehensive data are difficult to locate.
