Professor Dr. Gonzalo Emiliano Aranda Abreu who works at the Brain Research Institute for Universidad Veracruzana, Xalapa, Veracruz, México, was born in 1968 in Ciudad del Carmen Campeche, México. He received his BSc (Experimental Biology) degree from the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Iztalapa, México, in 1992. His MSc degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Centro de Investigación y Estudios Avanzados, IPN, México in 1996, and his Ph.D. degree in Neurobiology from Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, in 2001. He is an expert in Alzheimer’s disease research, principally analyzing tau protein transport in the neural axon and in relation to Alzheimer’s disease. Also, he has book chapters in relation to brain rehabilitation and is president and member of the Southeastern Mexican chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, USA. He is involved in the training of doctoral students and teaches molecular and cellular neurobiology and bioinformatics to Ph.D. students.

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.
