Summary:This clearly-written, up-to-date book presents a lucid, comprehensive view of synaptic transmission in a format that both advanced students and research scientists can appreciate. Among the topics covered are biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, release mechanisms, receptors and signalling.
Zimmermann also demonstrates the integration of recent discovery about the nervous system of higher animals into a larger picture that notes functional structural similarities between neurons and non-neuronal cells, primitive neurons and even plant systems. An outstanding overview, the book cites virtually all of the important papers in the recent literature, and the accessible text is supported by numerous two-color illustrations and section summaries.
The work will serve as an excellent primer for advanced student of neuroscience, neurobiology, and molecular biology, and uniquely serves practicing researchers as a useful reference.
