Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology
Neural Membranes and Transport
Third Edition
by Abel Lajtha

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology offers a comprehensive picture of the current body of knowledge on neural membranes with an emphasis on their function as barriers and transporters.

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology deals with neural membranes and barriers, ion pumps and ion transporters in neural membranes, and covers neural membranes and transport of neurotransmitters or other solutes.
