Brain Repair, addresses all relevant issues underlying the mechanisms of brain damage, brain plasticity and post-traumatic reorganisation after CNS lesions. This book is divided the three major sections that follow; cellular and molecular basis of brain repair, plasticity and reorganisation of neural networks, andexperimental therapy strategies.

Brain Repair is written by high profile, international experts who describe in detail the newest results from basic research and highlight new model systems, techniques and therapy approaches. Based on a careful analysis of the cellular and molecular reaction patterns of the CNS to lesions, the contributions cover possibilities for endogenous reorganisation and repair as well as exciting new therapies emerging from basic research, some of which have already been introduced into the clinics. Thus, this book is unique in bridging the gap between basic and clinical research. Itwill be a valuable tool for all students, researchers and clinicians interested in understanding the brain's capacity to cope with lesions andinterested inlearning about emerging new therapy concepts.

Mathias B hr obtained his MD in 1985 from the University of T bingen Medical School, Department of Neuropathology. Following this, he started his training in neurology at the University of D sseldorf before taking up a postdoctoral fellowship at the Max-Planck-Institute of Developmental Neurobiology from 1987-1989. In 1988 he began another postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University, St. Louis, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. From 1989 to 1993 he led a research group at the Max-Planck-Institute of Developmental Neurobiology in T bingen, completing his neurology training at the Department of Neurology at the University of T bingen. Mathias B hr gained his Board Certification in neurology in 1993, qualifying as a lecturer for neurology and attendant at the Department of Neurology. In 1996 he was appointed Associate Professor at the same department and offered an endowed chair for Clinical and Experimental Neurology. Since 2001 Professor B hr is the Chairman of the Department of Neurology at the University of G ttingen Medical School.
