This book records the proceedings of a 1976 Houston Neurological Symposium attended by a broad and impressive spectrum of basic and clinical scientists interested in neurotransmitter function. Dr Field's unsurpassed abilities in organizing and editing symposia are again demonstrated. The symposium is published for the specific purpose of presenting to both researchers and clinicians a spectrum of new information in an emerging and important aspect of neurobiology. It was intended that workers from the several disciplines of anatomy, physiology, and neurochemistry could find a common ground in their efforts.
While the preface suggests that there may be little immediately applicable to clinical medicine, it is rapidly becoming apparent that clinical applications based on the foundations described in this book are inevitable. This symposium presents its material in a succinct manner that was "state of the art" in 1976 and is still useful for investigators seeking interdisciplinary correlations and for
