Abstract: Full text
Laboratory animal research continuously contributes to improve understanding of human neurologic and psychiatry disorders. Clinical and animal research efforts result in increased knowledge of underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and allow the development of innovative, preventive and therapeutic measures. The Dutch-Flemish Society for Experimental and Clinical Neurosciences (EKN) aims to further dialogue between experimental laboratory and clinical neurosciences through organisation of symposia, congresses and courses. Through publication of this issue of Neuroscience Research Communications, we try to promote concerted actions between fundamental and clinical neuroscientists. Therefore, each chapter of this issue is entitled: “Animal Models of Neurologic and Psychiatric Disorders”. Each of the presented topics are covered by a clinician and an animal researcher. Overall, each paper refers to epidemiological and clinical hallmarks of the respective disorders and their etiological basis, followed by sections on animal models and their validity and usefullness. Animal models for neurological and psychiatric disorders which will be dealt with in this issue concern a variety of conditions and/or syndromes among which peripheral neuropathy, myastenia, multiple sclerosis, stroke, epilepsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, mental retardation, schizophrenia, affective disorders and obsessi ve compul sive disorders
