Description

The latest volume in this essential series features two papers on insect neurobiology, focusing on the receptor system for the GABA neurotransmitter and on the molecular and genetic base of fruitfly neurotransmission. A third paper reviews the genetic systems underlying biological rhythms in fruitflies. Finally the volume closes with a review of the insect hemolymph proteins which updates work in this field in the ten years since it was last reviewed. No insect physiologist or neurobiologist should be without this exciting and timely volume.

Readership

Insect and other physiologists and neuroscientists; zoologists.
