Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An advanced review of the interactions between motorneurones and muscles in vertebrates, integrating results from various disciplines. Covers the development of motorneurones and muscles; the significance of nerve-muscle interactions for the development of the neuromuscular systems; tonic and phasic muscle fibers of birds; nerve regeneration and muscle reinnervation; and the importance of neuromuscular activity in development. For researchers, neurophysiologists, and pathologists. Includes b&w photos and diagrams. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
