Our Wired Nerves,
Edition 1 The Human Nerve Connectome
By Douglas W Zochodne, MD, FRCPC

Publication Date: 23 Jul 2020

The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It is made up of two major divisions: the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system. This consists of all other neural elements, including the peripheral nerves and the autonomic nerves. Peripheral nerves are the essential connections between the brain and spinal cord and the body. Without nerves there is no movement or sensation. Our Wired Nerves: The Human Nerve Connectome, reviews the essential anatomy and physiology of the peripheral nerve. It introduces the reader to what neuropathies are, how pain arises from damaged nerves and how nerves might be regenerated, including new and exciting ideas over how to coax their regrowth. Written by Dr. Douglas Zochodne leading expert in the field, and first book to focus on the Peripheral nerves it will surely be an essential reference for researchers and clinicians alike.
