This survey of the present state-of-the-art and of the most recent developments in the field of amino acid availability and brain physiology provides more than 40 contributions by leading scientists. Seven interrelated chapters cover following topics: - peripheral control of brain amino acid supply; - uptake, compartimentation, and utilization of brain amino acids; - influence of an altered precursor amino acid supply: - on transmitter metabolism, - on functional neurotransmission and - on physiology and behaviour; - impact of an altered amino acid supply in neurologic and psychiatric diseases, and - the role of amino acid availability during embryogenesis and brain development.
