The study of adult neurogenesis has grown exponentially over the past decade. New papers are being published almost daily, making any attempt to summarize the field a daunting task. Nevertheless, the editors and authors of Adult Neurogenesis have managed to assemble a comprehensive review of current research. Organized into seven sections that encompass 30 chapters covering topics ranging from the detection of adult-generated neurons to their possible role in neurological and psychiatric disease, the book provides a truly panoramic picture. The editors acknowledge that the volume presents only a snapshot of the current field...but its comprehensive nature makes it a valuable collection of knowledge and ideas in this burgeoning area of neuroscience.
Given the size of the literature on the subject of neurogenesis, it would be convenient to have most of the existing information compiled in an easily accessible form. Adult Neurogenesis by Gage, Kempermann, and Song is a recently published book that fills this niche by covering many aspects of this intriguing phenomenon....[T]he book is an authoritative source that provides wide coverage of the major topics of the field.
