Overview

Dynamic Synapse: Molecular Methods in Ionotropic Receptor Biology: Molecular Methods in Ionotropic Receptor Biology

The Dynamic Synapse: Molecular Methods in Ionotropic Receptor Biology focuses on recently developed techniques, methods, and conceptual advances currently being used for studying the regulation of ionotropic neurotransmitter receptors (AMPA, NMDA, and GABAA receptors) by associated proteins and by receptor trafficking. Written by world renown leaders in the field, the book discusses glutamate and GABAA receptors, which mediate the vast majority of fast synaptic transmission in the brain and are present in most central nervous system synapses. It brings together diverse techniques to study a single process. Until now, few works have brought together all the latest techniques in one easily accessible book.
