This work is the first of a series of three projected volumes on neurobiology, a relatively new field of study that is advancing with ever-increasing impetus and accumulating a great variety of facts at nearly all levels of instrumental observation. The aid of practically every modern scientific device or technique of biological investigation is being sought to elucidate the biochemical and biophysical processes of the brain. This book attempts to present as up-to-the-minute a review as possible of the many-sided investigations in neurochemistry, including current work in the laboratories of the various contributors. This adds a sense of immediacy and tentativeness that is so often lacking in review articles, which sometimes give a false impression of established fact. Another aim of the series is to bring together the work of these investigators in the hope that a pooling of their ideas will result in fruitful concepts based on the evolvement
