All living matter is comprised of cells, small compartments isolated from the environment by a cell membrane and filled with concentrated solutions of various organic and inorganic compounds. Some organisms are single-cell, where all life functions are performed by that cell. Others have groups of cells, or organs, specializing in one particular function. The survival of the entire organism depends on all of its cells and organs fulfilling their roles. While the cells are studied by different sciences, they are
"For both seasoned neurobiologists and interested newcomers to the field, this book is a worthwhile introduction to the wonders of synapses and the many opportunities for future study that they offer." -- Science
Reviews research on the pharmacology and physiopathology of GABA receptors in the mammalian central nervous system. The coverage ranges from molecular biology, to molecular and clinical pharmacology, to new approaches to pharmacotherapy of convulsive, sleep, and anxiety disorders.
