"Athletes have always sought to have an advantage over their opponents, and advances in our knowledge of biochemistry, biomechanics, physiology and psychology have been harnessed to help provide this 'edge'. This volume of Essays in Biochemistry focuses on how sport performance can be enhanced, whether by legal ergogenic aids or illegal performance-enhancing drugs, by discussing the biochemical and physiological mechanisms that can be modified to improve performance." "If you teach or are studying biochemistry or molecular biology, Essays in Biochemistry provides a single source of information on areas of rapidly moving research. Particular attention is given to topics which, perhaps because of recent developments, are poorly covered in standard student texts."--BOOK JACKET.
