Description

This insightful and comprehensive book covers nearly every aspect of glutamate receptor structure and function for the working researcher and student. It condenses two previous landmark volumes into one easily accessible volume, and covers the extraordinary research and significant developments in the decade since the previous books were published. This includes the central role glutamate receptors play in neurotransmission.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "This is intended as a comprehensive primer for scientists and students studying the glutamate receptors. ... The book provides a good working knowledge of these receptors for all potential neuroscientist readers. ... it likely will best serve as a review for active researchers in the field of neuroscience. ... this book provides a timely update reflecting significant progress in the research in this field. ... an excellent resource for reviews on the neurobiology of individual receptor systems."

Back cover copy

Glutamate receptors are critically important for normal brain function. The preceding decade has seen remarkable advances in our understanding of the physiological function and molecular structure of these proteins. The Glutamate Receptors provides an expansive review of the field with a topical update to two excellent books - The Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors and The Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors. An exciting primer to the study of glutamate receptors and their central role in neurotransmission, The Glutamate Receptors covers the extraordinary research and significant developments in the decade since the previous books were published and gives a snapshot of how prominent scientists look to the future of research in the field. Both insightful and comprehensive, The Glutamate Receptors provides an invaluable reference to students and scientists on nearly every aspect of glutamate receptor structure and function.show more
