Concentrating on the functioning of the isolated nerve terminal or synaptosome, this book provides a biochemical insight into the mechanism of release of the major class of amino-acid neurotransmitters such as GABA, which directly affect the neuronal membrane.

Proteins, Transmitters and Synapses Summary


Proteins, Transmitters and Synapses by David Nicholls

This exciting text adopts a modern approach to the understanding of the biochemistry of synaptic function, the primary building block of mind and higher brain processes. The book concentrates on the functioning of the isolated nerve terminal or synaptosome, the simplest model from which the workings of all the important events in neurotransmission can be deduced. Students are provided with a detailed biochemical insight into the mechanism of release of the major class of amino-acid neurotransmitters such as GABA which directly affect the neuronal membrane. Aimed at the advanced undergraduate, and at researchers, this is a clearly expounded, comprehensive and up to date account of the subject.
