The human brain is a convoluted bundle of nerve cells: a hub from which millions of nerve impulses are transmitted, and to which yet more millions of impulses are sent. But how can this mass of cells control our moods, our behaviours, our addictions? And what happens if this mass of cellsdegenerates, and no longer functions as it should?The Human Brain and its Disorders offers an engaging and accessible introduction to the human brain and the human nervous system, what happens when normal neural function is lost, and how resulting disorders can be treated. Written specifically for the non-specialist by experts in eachsub-discipline, the book uses extensive examples and real-life case studies to show how the theory applies in reality. Opening with an overview of key neurobiological concepts, the book goes on to explore conditions such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis, before examiningpsychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, and addiction.With extensive learning features throughout each chapter, and an Online Resource Centre to support its use as a teaching text, The Human Brain and its Disorders is the ideal resource for any student wishing to develop a working understanding of how the brain works, and the consequences of brainmalfunction.Online Resource Centre:For registered adopters of the text:- Figures from the book available to download, to facilitate lecture preparation- Multiple-choice question test bank, to support formative or summative assessment.

Central nervous system drug development is hampered by the restricted transport of drugs across the blood–brain barrier. Different strategies to deliver drugs to the brain have been developed. We discuss the current status of development of liposomal drug delivery to the brain. There is a growing interest in targeted. delivery of liposomes to the brain and much progress has been made towards successful development of novel treatments for patients with devastating brain diseases.
