Basic Neurochemistry: Principles of Molecular, Cellular, and
Medical Neurobiology, the outstanding and comprehensive classic
text on neurochemistry, is now newly updated and revised in its
Eighth Edition. For more than forty years, this text has been the
worldwide standard for information on the biochemistry of the
nervous system, serving as a resource for postgraduate trainees and
teachers in neurology, psychiatry, and basic neuroscience, as well
as for medical, graduate, and postgraduate students and instructors
in the neurosciences. The text has evolved, as intended, with the
science. It is also an excellent source of current information on
basic biochemical and cellular processes in brain function and
neurological diseases for continuing medical education and
qualifying examinations. This text continues to be the standard
reference and textbook for exploring the translational nature of
neuroscience, bringing basic and clinical neuroscience together in
one authoritative volume. Our book title reflects the expanded
attention to these links between neurochemistry and neurologic
This new edition continues to cover the basics of neurochemistry
as in the earlier editions, along with expanded and additional
coverage of new research from: Intracellular trafficking;Stem
cells, adult neurogenesis, regeneration;Lipid messengers;Expanded
coverage of all major neurodegenerative and psychiatric
disorders;Neurochemistry of addiction;Neurochemistry of
pain;Neurochemistry of hearing and balance;Neurobiology of learning
and memory;Sleep;Myelin structure, development, and disease;Autism;
The new edition features:
* Completely updated text with new authors and material, and
many entirely new chapters * Over 400 fully revised figures in
splendid color * 61 chapters covering the range of cellular,
molecular and medical neuroscience * Translational science boxes
