Neurosciences Research, Volume 3 covers research problems concerned with the central nervous system. The book discusses the transport processes at the brain cell; the life history of the microglial cell; and studies on the choroid plexus. The text also describes the role of the cerebral peduncle in movements, as well as the pathobiological aspects of the action of tetanal toxin in the nervous system and skeletal muscle. Neuroscientists, neurochemists, and neuropathologists will find book useful.
