Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"I am very glad of the opportunity . to welcome the latest volume of this magnificent collection. . each of the individual contributions here provides excellent background reading at exactly the right level for an MSc Neuroscience project. All libraries catering for master's degree courses and for postgraduate research in biochemical topics should be aware of this series." (Martin Guha, Reference Reviews, Vol. 21 (6), 2007)
