In Situ Hybridization : Applications to Neurobiology
A technique for reading the messenger RNAs by which cells express their distinctive populations of structural and functional proteins, in situ hybridization is now reliable and practical for use in neurobiological research. This book is a guide to methods and applications for the working neuroscientist. The authors, all leaders in developing and refining the techniques under discussion, begin with a general account of in situ hybridization and eukaryotic gene expression, and go on to describe, in step-by-step detail, a number of specific research applications. Readership: Students, reseachers and laboratory workers concerned with the cell and molecular biology of the nervous system.
