Editorial Reviews

This book grew from a workshop held under the auspices of the Second World Congress of Neuroscience (IBRO) in Budapest, Aug. 1987. Contributors were asked to expand their research presentation to include not just their own findings but to put all relevant findings into a perspective. The result is a highlighting of current hot spots of interest in a field that is entering its logarithmic growth phase. Coverage is of chloride carriers--methods for measuring chloride transport, principles of cell volume regulation, synaptic inhibition; and different types of chloride channels--transmitter-activated anion channels, calcium-dependent, voltage-activated.
