Basic Neurochemistry: Molecular, Cellular, and Medical Aspects
George J. Siegel, Bernard W. Agranoff
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999 - Science - 1183 pages
The standard-setting textbook in neurochemistry is now in its thoroughly updated Sixth Edition. All chapters have been extensively revised, and new chapters by new contributors cover cell-cell interactions; adhesion molecules and extracellular matrix; intracellular trafficking; cytosol-nuclear communication; nerve growth and regeneration; excitotoxicity; apoptosis; drug addiction; and prion diseases. Molecular biology is integrated into every chapter and the neurochemical basis of disease is discussed when it is known. More than 500 illustrations, over 400 in color, complement the text.Basic Neurochemistry, Sixth Edition is available on a CD-ROM that includes links to the MEDLINE(R) database and the Basic Neurochemistry Website. A slide set of illustrations from the book is also available. See Media Products Section for details.
