by Abel Lajtha

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neruobiology provides a comprehensive resource for studies of brain function and metabolism.

This volume focuses on aspects of energy metabolism that unique to the brain and provides a fundamental overview of each area, to define the state-of-the-art in that area as it relates to the brain, and, where appropriate, describe models that portray poorly understood and apparently contradictory data sets with the goal of helping focus attention to experimental resolution of controversial issues.
