"Neurochemistry" ed. by Thomas Heinbockel
InTAvE | 2014 | ISBN: 9535112376 9789535112372 | 404 pages | PDF | 41 MB
The book presents comprehensive reviews in these different areas written by experts in their respective fields. Neurodegeneration and neuronal diseases are featured prominently and are a recurring theme throughout most chapters. This book will be a most valuable resource for neurochemists and other scientists alike, it will contribute to the training of current and future neurochemists.
Neurochemistry is a flourishing academic field that contributesto our understanding of molecular, cellular and medical neurobiology.
As a scientific discipline, neurochemistry studies the role of chemicals that build the nervous system, it explores the function of neurons and glial cells in health and disease, it discovers aspectsof cell metabolism and neurotransmission, and it reveals how degenerative processes are at work in the nervous system.
Accordingly, this book contains chapters from a variety of topics that fall into the following broad sections:
I. Neural Membranes and Intracellular Signaling,
II. Neural Processing and Intercellular Signaling,
III. Growth, Development and Differentiation, and
IV. Neurodegenerative Diseases.
