It has been well-known that viruses can result in neuronal harm via numerous mechanisms. This quantity summarizes, for the 1st time, a number of the ways in which neurons can degenerate below the impact of viral an infection, starting from acute necrosis and virus-induced apoptosis to continual harm in continual infections. The mechanisms of neuronal latency are handled to boot. the quantity additionally contains chapters that evaluation the persistent harm because of viral proteins that intrude with differentiated capabilities of the neuron, together with signaling by means of neurotransmitters and sign transduction through trophic components. different chapters care for the debatable function of mobile immune reactions, that may be priceless in controlling an infection, yet can also be hazardous to the host apprehensive process. the explicit mechanisms of wear and tear all in favour of retroviral infections and in prion ailments of the frightened method are reviewed, and eventually how autoimmune ailments can result in neuronal damage.
