Neurobiology Neural Signals Reviewed

If you need to catch up on signaling in neuronal cells, the current issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is the place to go. It contains a series of reviews from all-stars in the field written as summaries of the Inaugural Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium on Neural Signaling held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC, 15 to 17 February 2001. From synapses, channels, receptors, and transcription factors to chemosensation, long-term potentiation, addiction, and Alzheimer's disease--there is something for everyone here.
