This book contains the proceedings of the Fifth International Neurochemical Symposium held in 1962, in St. Wolfgang, Austria.

Comparative neurochemistry was selected as the topic of this symposium in an attempt to integrate our growing body of knowledge of the neurochemical mechanisms found in various animal species. Very little effort prior to this symposium had been made in neurochemistry to compile these observations into one volume. The approach can be extremely valuable in better understanding the complex neurochemical mechanisms in higher animals.

The symposium is divided into seven sessions. The first part is concerned with the functional organization of the nervous system in invertebrates and vertebrates. An excellent paper by F. Knowles on the interrelation of secretory and nervous functions in lower animals emphasizes the importance of secretion as a fundamental and primitive feature of the central nervous system. The second part of the symposium covers several aspects of lipid
