About this Reference Work

This volume is a collection of a variety of brain proteins and peptides whose structures and functions are relatively well known. Each chapter provides a succinct and up-to-date summary of a protein or peptide as well as a review of the individual's contributions to the field. The volume explores the progress that has been made in the field over the past few years and provides insight into the field today.

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)
