In situ hybridization has become an important and widely used research tool for neurobiologists since the authors' first book on the subject, In Situ Hybridization: Applications to Neurobiology (Oxford, 1987). This new volume examines the methodological advances that have been made in in situhybridization techniques and their impact on the study of the nervous system. These include methods for improving sensitivity, ways of examining multiple mRNAs within the same section, ways of examining both proteins and mRNAs within the same section, and methods for using in situ hybridizationtechnology to examine areas of cellular biological significance, such as translational control. The development of alternative labels to radioactivity for the detection of hybridized probes, and the combined use of in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry is also covered in this book. Itdiscusses the quantification of in situ hybridization signal and presents an overview of information generated by using in situ hybridization in diagnostic medicine. This volume will be essential to researchers in the neurosciences as well as those in other disciplines.
