About the Author

About the Author: Akhlaq A. Farooqui is a leader in the field of brain phospholipases A2, bioactive ether lipid metabolism, and glutamate-mediated neurotoxicity. He has discovered the stimulation of plasmalogen-selective phospholipase A2 activity in brains from patients with Alzheimer disease, and published cutting edge research on the generation and identification of glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid, and cholesterol-derived lipid mediators in kainic acid neurotoxicity. He has authored three monographs: Glycerophospholipids in Brain: Phospholipase A2 in Neurological Disorders (2007); Neurochemical Aspects of Excitotoxicity (2008); and Metabolism and Functions of Bioactive Ether Lipids in Brain (2008). All monographs are published by Springer, New York.
