Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology
Neuroactive Proteins and Peptides
Third Edition
by Abel Lajtha

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology is a collection of a variety of brain proteins and peptides whose structure and functions are relatively well known. Each chapter provides a succinct and up-to-date summary of a protein or peptide as well as a review of the individual's contributions to the field.

The volume explores the progress that has been made in the field over the past few years and provides insight into the field today.
