Professor Dr. Gonzalo Emiliano Aranda Abreu (Centro de Investigaciones Cerebrales, Universidad Veracruzana, Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico) was born in 1968 in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, Mexico. He received his BSc (Experimental Biology) degree from the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Iztapalapa, Mexico, in 1992; MSc (Molecular Biology and Genetics) degree from the Centro de Investigación y Estudios Avanzados, IPN, Mexico, in 1996; and PhD (Neurobiology) degree from Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, in 2001. He has more than 20 years of experience in Alzheimer’s disease research. He has written articles on tau mRNA transport in the neuronal axon and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as book chapters where the main theme is brain rehabilitation. He is the president and member of the Southeastern Mexican Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, USA. He is involved in the training of doctoral students. He teaches molecular and cellular neurobiology, and bioinformatics to PhD degree students. Dr. Gonzalo Aranda\'s research is focused on Alzheimer\'s disease. He has extensive experience in mechanisms for locating mRNAs in the axon. He is also interested in the relationship that exists between neuroinflammation mechanisms and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer\'s disease. He is trying to find a therapy that can help Alzheimer\'s patients have a better quality of life.

The brain is the most complex structure that exists in the universe, consisting of neurons whose function is to receive information through dendrites and transmit information through the axon. In neurosciences one of the main problems that exists are neurodegenerative diseases for which until now there has been no cure. This book is mainly focused on updating the information on the signaling process carried out in the development of axons. Topics such as axon guidance and its interaction with the extracellular matrix are discussed. Other important topics are semaphorins and their relationship with neurodegenerative diseases, and the neurobiology of the gap junction in the dorsal root ganglion. Finally, the topic of bioelectrical interfaces destined to regenerate damaged nerves is covered. The information in this book will be very important both for researchers who work with these issues and doctoral students who are involved in neuroscience.
