Overview

Basic Neurochemistry: Principles of Molecular, Cellular, and Medical Neurobiology, the outstanding and comprehensive classic text on neurochemistry, is now newly updated and revised in its Eighth Edition. For more than forty years, this text has been the worldwide standard for information on the biochemistry of the nervous system, serving as a resource for postgraduate trainees and teachers in neurology, psychiatry, and basic neuroscience, as well as for medical, graduate, and postgraduate students and instructors in the neurosciences. The text has evolved, as intended, with the science. It is also an excellent source of current information on basic biochemical and cellular processes in brain function and neurological diseases for continuing medical education and qualifying examinations. This text continues to be the standard reference and textbook for exploring the translational nature of neuroscience, bringing basic and clinical neuroscience together in one authoritative volume. Our book title reflects the expanded attention to these links between neurochemistry and neurologic disease.

This new edition continues to cover the basics of neurochemistry as in the earlier editions, along with expanded and additional coverage of new research from:Intracellular trafficking;Stem cells, adult neurogenesis, regeneration;Lipid messengers;Expanded coverage of all major neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders;Neurochemistry of addiction;Neurochemistry of pain;Neurochemistry of hearing and balance;Neurobiology of learning and memory;Sleep;Myelin structure, development, and disease;Autism; andNeuroimmunology.

The new edition features:

• Completely updated text with new authors and material, and many entirely new chapters
• Over 400 fully revised figures in splendid color
• 61 chapters covering the range of cellular, molecular and medical neuroscience
• Translational science boxes emphasizing the connections between basic and clinical neuroscience
