Cellular Dynamics of the Neuron covers advances in the study of the cellular dynamics of the neuron. The book discusses the synthesis and transport of the neuroplasm, as well as the synthesis, transport, and action of neurotransmitters. The text also describes the functional implications of synaptic ultrastructure and the morphological and biochemical correlates of neuronal plasticity. Cell biologists, neurobiologists, cell pathologists, molecular biologists, and physiologists will find the book invaluable.
