Description Our Wired Nerves The Human Nerve Connectome PDF

It is made up of two major divisions: the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system. This consists of all other neural elements, including the peripheral nerves and the autonomic nerves. Peripheral nerves are the essential connections between the brain and spinal cord and the body.

Without nerves there is no movement or sensation. Our Wired Nerves: The Human Nerve Connectome, reviews the essential anatomy and physiology of the peripheral nerve. It introduces the reader to what neuropathies are, how pain arises from damaged nerves and how nerves might be regenerated, including new and exciting ideas over how to coax their regrowth. Written by Dr. Douglas Zochodne leading expert in the field, and first book to focus on the Peripheral nerves it will surely be an essential reference for researchers and clinicians alike.

Dr. Zochodne’s career has included faculty positions at Queen’s University, Canada, the University of Calgary and more recently the University of Alberta.

He has devoted his career toward understanding the biology and diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Dr. Zochodne’s roles have included Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences (1999-2007), President of the Peripheral Nerve Society (2009-2011). He is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences and was awarded the Wolfe Prize in Neuropathy research by the American Neurological Association in 2011 and the Alan J. Gebhart Prize for Excellence in Peripheral Nerve Research, Peripheral Nerve Society in 2019. Dr. Zochodne has channeled his research as an investigator of diabetic polyneuropathy and peripheral neuron regeneration. His laboratory has been funded continuously since 1988 and it has published over 285 research papers and chapters including four books.
