CNS Neurotransmitters and Neuromodulators is an indispensable and comprehensive reference for any research worker involved with glutamate in the CNS. An impressive group of well-known authors contribute up-to-date reviews that offer a global picture of the state of research in the area.

The authors cover a wide range of interdisciplinary aspects of the subject, including anatomical, physiological, and biochemical. Topics in this volume range from the localization of synthetic enzymes through electrophysiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology to behavioral importance in learning and memory. No other single volume offers the depth or broad scope of material found here.

In addition to being a definitive reference work, CNS Neurotransmitters and Neuromodulators is the perfect one-step introduction to glutamate in the CNS for undergraduates, postgraduates, or established researchers who want a comprehensive overview text to keep abreast of developments in several areas of neuroscience.


"…this book admirably achieves its goal of providing a convenient one-stop overview of EAA neurotransmission…highly recommended for the library of any department engaged in neurobiological research."

-John W. Farkany, J. Med. Chem., 1996, 39(3)
