Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William E. Hoffman, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a new edition focusing on the current status of neurotransmitters in the brain. It provides a comprehensive update of well-known neurotransmitters as well as the development of analysis of newly determined transmitters. This work derived from a symposium on neurotransmitter function and is dedicated to Professor Tork, a famous scientist in neurotransmitter function.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe new advances in neurotransmitters as determined by rapidly developing immunology and molecular biology techniques. The book is important because it provides a fresh update of this rapidly changing field. It adequately meets the objective of providing the current status of neurotransmitters.
Audience: The audience is the specialist with extensive knowledge in neurotransmitter function. This is a technical publication written to update the reader on neurotransmitters without providing much background information. This audience would include researchers with an interest in brain function and new technology in neurotransmitters and clinical specialists who have a working knowledge in new research in neurotransmitters.
Features: The book is well detailed with illustrations of work in progress. Illustrations include the latest immunological and staining techniques on new transmitters identified in brain function.
Assessment: This book thoroughly reviews the current status of neurotransmitter function with respect to well-known and newly identified transmitters. Each chapter focuses on a specific type of transmitter, providing up-to-date research information on knowledge in each area. Technically, this publication is a good representation of current progress. It is targeted for the researcher or clinical specialist who has extensive knowledge in neurotransmitter analysis techniques or an interest in their function in pathological states.

Booknews
The proceedings of a February 1994 conference in New South Wales comprise 13 papers reporting some recent basic research results on neurotransmitters in the brain and how they may contribute to the understanding of such diseases as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, depression, and schizophrenia. The topics include neurotransmitters as tools for mapping the human brain, GABA neurons in the primate visual cortex, and non-dopamine receptor changes in midbrain nuclei in Parkinson's disease.
