Metabolic Encephalopathy is meant to combine and correlate animal and human

studies. In many cases, alterations in the neurochemistry of humans and experimental
animal models is similar. It is hoped that increased awareness of the importance of early
diagnosis and treatment of these disorders may result in a lowering of the incidence
of structural changes and morbidity. These metabolic encephalopathies hold a special
fascination for both basic scientists and clinical investigators because they are accessible,
treatable, and there exist good animal models for further study. Therefore, this book
assembles both basic and clinical neuroscience issues in the treatment of specific
metabolic encephalopathies such as uremia, Wernickes disease, epilepsy, stroke, hepatic
encephalopathy, pediatric encephalopathies, inborn errors of metabolism, toxins such as
lead, depression, cerebral infections, kernicterus, Wilson disease, and many others.
