Mitochondria are essential organelles in eukaryotic cells that control such diverse processes as energy metabolism, calcium buffering, and cell death. Recent studies have revealed that changes in mitochondrial morphology by fission and fusion, a process known as mitochondrial dynamics, is particularly important for neuronal function and survival. Defects in this process are commonly found in neurodegenerative diseases, offering a new paradigm for investigating mechanisms of neurodegeneration. To provide researchers working on neurodegenerative diseases and mitochondria with updated information on this rapidly progressing field, we have invited experts in the field to critically review recent progresses and identify future research directions. The topics include genetics of mitochondrial dynamics, mitochondrial dynamics and bioenergetics, autophagy, apoptosis, and axonal transport, and its role in neurological diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's diseases.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The roles of various genes in the process of neurodegeneration is studied and published within this volume. The book ir primarily for biochemists, neuroscientists, and geneticists at all levels of training. I recommend it without any reservations." (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2013)
