Neural Lipid Signalling offers new insights into the role of lipid intermediates in cell signaling. Due to advances in cell biology, synaptic physiology and receptor pharmacology that demonstrate that lipids play broad informational roles in the central nervous system, this publication provides researchers with the tools and concepts needed to navigate the increasingly important world of lipid signaling.
