This up-to-date compilation addresses the scientific problems of determining a mode of action of lithium and provides a cross-disciplinary perspective. In addition to psychiatrists interested in the therapeutic uses of lithium, it will also be of interest to biochemists using lithium as an inhibitor of phosphoinositide signaling, immunologists studying lymphocytes, and dermatologists studying viral replication in the skin.


Research pharmacologists and biochemists, as well as psychiatrists, virologists, and dermatologists.
