It is worth recalling that the first European university chemistry laboratory where students were taught to conduct scientific experiments was organized by the pioneer Russian chemist, M. V. Lomonosov, at the University of Moscow in 1748. The interest of Russian chemists in the brain began almost a century ago with the studies on cerebral lipids by Dhyakonov in 1868 and on cerebral proteins by Petrovskii in 1873. And in 1885, only a year after the original publication in England, a translation of Thudichum's classic monograph on the chemical constitution of the brain was published at Kharkov under the title: Fiziologicheskaya khimiya golovnogo mozga. The modern era of Soviet neurochemistry emerged in the early 1920's with the first studies by A. V. Palladin, who is probably the dean of Soviet neurochemists and who is the editor of the original edition of the volume under review.
