Overview

Voltammetric Methods in Brain Systems offers neuroscientists at all levels of expertise a combination of theory and practical how-to instructions for using in vivo and on-line neurotransmitter measurements in their experimental brain systems. Coverage includes the entire spectrum of applications for in situ, brain slices, transplant media, cell cultures, and single cells. Emphasis is on fast measurements that reveal release-reuptake information on transmitter systems. How-to information ranges from ample detail on the preparation of electrodes, to practical experimental details, to the interpretation of results.

Written by many of the world's leading experts-often those whose laboratories have spearheaded work in the area-Voltammetric Methods in Brain Systems provides insightful views on all the best approaches and experimental techniques, with sufficient introductory material and practical detail to satisfy both newcomers and experienced researchers.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book is a very useful guide to the different voltammetry "engines" currently in use...all research groups involved in vivo voltammetry would be well advised to have a copy of this book. It is an invaluble source for...the different techniques and research workers in the field.-Quarterly Review of Biology
