Description

This book reviews current research on the important processes involved in neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) and the peptides and proteins involved in the amyloidogenic processes. It covers the design and developments of anti-amyloid inhibitors, and gives readers a fundamental understanding of the underlying oligomerization and aggregation processes of these diseases from both computational and experimental points of view.
