The book chapters give a very good and in depth overview about the currently existing and most used EAE models. In addition, chapters dealing with novel experimental therapeutic approaches demonstrate the usefulness of the EAE model for MS research. With an international perspective, this book features contributions from authors throughout the world, Australia, Germany, Japan, Spain, Taiwan, and USA. There is an impressive international Faculty that provides insight into current research themes. This further demonstrates the importance of EAE in research all over the world. The book will provide established researchers and students with novel insights and guidance for their research and will help to push the field forward.
