Editors: Benjamin F. Paley and Tomas E. Warfield
Book Description:
Amino acid receptors and cell surface proteins that bind amino acids and trigger changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glutamate receptors are the most common receptors for fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the vertebrate central nervous system, and GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID and glycine receptors are the most common receptors for fast inhibition. This new book presents the latest research in the field.
