Elements of molecular neurobiology

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The 1980s have seen spectacular advances in our understanding of the molecular bases of neurobiology. Biological membranes, channel proteins, cytoskeletal elements, and neuroactive peptides have all been illuminated by the molecular approach. The operation of synapses can be seen to be far more subtle and complex than has previously been imagined, and the development of the brain and physical basis of memory have both been illuminated by this new understanding. In addition, some of the ways in which the brain may go wrong can be traced to malfunction at the molecular level. This study attemps a synthesis of this new knowledge, to provide an indication of how an understanding at the molecular level can help towards a theory of the brain in health and disease. The text will be of benefit to undergraduate students of biochemistry, medical science, pharmacy, pharmacology and general biology.
