Brain Banking, Volume 150, serves as the only book on the market offering comprehensive coverage of the functional realities of brain banking. It focuses on brain donor recruitment strategies, brain bank networks, ethical issues, brain dissection/tissue processing/tissue dissemination, neuropathological diagnosis, brain donor data, and techniques in brain tissue analysis. In accordance with massive initiatives, such as BRAIN and the EU Human Brain Project, abnormalities and potential therapeutic targets of neurological and psychiatric disorders need to be validated in human brain tissue, thus requiring substantial numbers of well characterized human brains of high tissue quality with neurological and psychiatric diseases.

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of the functional realities of brain banking, with a focus on brain donor recruitment strategies, brain bank networks, ethical issues, and more
  • Serves as a valuable resource for staff in existing brain banks by highlighting best practices
  • Enhances the sharing of expertise between existing banks and highlights a range of techniques applicable to banked tissue for neuroscience researchers
  • Authored by leaders from brain banks around the globe - the broadest, most expert coverage available
