Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity - Evidence and Debate : Volume 128 Hardback
Part of the Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science series
The 'epi-(Greek for 'over', 'above')genome', with its rich cache of highly regulated, structural modifications-including DNA methylation, histone modifications and histone variants-defines the moldings and three-dimensional structures of the genomic material inside the cell nucleus and serves, literally, as a molecular bridge linking the environment to the genetic materials in our brain cells.
Due to technological and scientific advances in the field, the field of neuroepigenetics is currently one of the hottest topics in the basic and clinical neurosciences.
The volume captures some of this vibrant and exciting new research, and conveys to the reader an up-to-date discussion on the role of epigenetics across the lifespan of the human brain in health and disease.
