Julianna Cseri, M.D., Ph.D., is a College Professor retired from the Department of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Public Health, University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary. Her scientific field is skeletal muscle physiology. She was awarded her general medicine diploma in 1973 from the University Medical School of Debrecen and started scientific work at the Department of Physiology, University Medical School of Debrecen (later the Faculty of Medicine University of Debrecen). She achieved scientific qualifications in muscle electrophysiology. Her attention was later turned to the proliferation and differentiation of the skeletal muscle in cell cultures and the role of intracellular calcium homeostasis in myogenesis. This work is closely related to muscle degeneration and regeneration in vivo, managed by physiotherapy interventions.

A healthy skeletal musculature is necessary for a good quality of life and is important in sports. The loss of skeletal muscle mass leads to severe clinical complications and alters daily functioning. The aim of this book is to give an overview of skeletal muscle atrophy including pathomechanism, clinical characters, and the tools for prevention and treatment. Skeletal muscle atrophy can develop due to neurogenic or myogenic reasons, and frequently appears as an age-dependent disorder (sarcopenia). The studies of theoretical background give promising perspectives to prevent and treat muscle atrophy. The book is recommended to scientists, practitioners, students, sportsmen, and everybody who is interested in the normal and impaired function of the skeletal muscle.
