Owolabi and colleagues review the current issues related to inadequate neurological care of patients in most of Africa. Increased recruitment and retention of neurologists represent a major challenge. International collaboration and support are needed to increase the number of neurologists and the resources to provide adequate care and conduct research. Editorial perspective is provided by Johan A. Aarli, MD.

Tafti and Ghyselinck provide a critical and clinically valuable review of the essential role that vitamin A derivatives, the retinoids, provide in synaptic plasticity, learning and memory, sleep, schizophrenia, depression, Parkinson disease, and Alzheimer disease. The clinical disorders reviewed with reference to vitamin A function are complex and involve both genetic and environmental factors.
