Neuronal And Glial Proteins
Author: Paul Marangos
Publisher: Elsevier
Release Date: 2012-12-02
Pages: 410
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Neuronal and Glial Proteins: Structure, Function, and Clinical Application focuses on the basic and clinical information relating to a number of proteins that are either enriched in or unique to nervous tissue. This book discusses the structural and functional characteristics of cell-specific proteins, which provide a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in processes that are specific to glia or neurons. Organized into three sections encompassing 15 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the fundamental principles and strategies involved in studying the anatomical, structural, functional, and immunological aspects of brain protein. This text then discusses the techniques, including the preparation of brain tissues as well as the preparation of neural and glial cells in purified form. Other chapters review the two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, which is recognized as a significant technique for discovering brain molecules. The final chapter deals with the membrane-associated nervous system proteins. Neurochemists and clinical researchers will find this book useful.

Structural Elements Of The Nervous System
Author: Abel Lajtha
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Pages: 710
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Neurochemistry, having the objective of elucidating biochemical processes subserving nervous activity, emerged as an application of chemistry to the of neurobiological problems as a post-World War II phenomenon. investigation However, only in the last 40 years has the chemical community recognized neurochemistry as a distinct, if hybrid, discipline. During this period great strides have been made. However, recently neurochemistry, along with neu rophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy, and the behavioral sci ences, has emerged to form neuroscience, a new community of scientists with its own national society, journals, and meetings. Actually, this recently formed hybrid, neuroscience, is in the process of merging with another well-established discipline, molecular genetics (frequently called molecular biology, and itself a hybrid), which appears to have sufficient hybrid vigor to form yet a new community of scientists, which, for want of a more imaginative term, has been called molecular genetic neuroscience. Clearly, advantages resulting from such mergers or hybridizations accrue not only from the merging discipline (neurochemistry in this case) to the new community (molecular genetic neuroscience), but also in the reverse direction. This Foreword will be concerned primarily with examples of this latter process.

Protocols For Neural Cell Culture

Release Date: 2008-06-29
Pages: 262
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The first edition of Protocols for Neural Cell Culture was published in 1992 and the second edition in 1997. Originally, the publication grew outofprotocols used in the Tissue Culture Course given at the University of Saskatchewan. The course was patterned on those given by the Tissue CultureAssociation, first in Toronto, Canada, in 1948, then in Cooperstown, NY, then Denver, CO, and finally in Madison, WI, where the course ended in 1964. The course in Saskatchewan began in 1963 as a month-long international course that included both animal and plant tissue cultures. Over the years the course underwent specialization, first being limited to animal tissue culture, then to an intensive one-week general course. This led to one-week courses especially designed for tissue culture for the study of cancer or of the cardiovascular or the nervous system. In 1989, the Saskatchewan course became part of the Tissue Culture Training Facility of the Neuroscience Network of the Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence. The course and the Training Facility ceased to exist in 1997. The faculty for the Saskatchewan course was drawn from the best labora tories in the world and laboratory protocols from those centers were thoroughly tested in a student laboratory setting for many years.

Neural Development And Stem Cells

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2007-10-28
Pages: 468
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Developing the second edition of Neural Development and Stem Cells was neces- tated by the rapid increase in our knowledge of the development of the nervous system. It has become increasingly clear that stem cells are a heterogeneous population that changes extensively during development. Perhaps the most important advance in our understanding of stem cell behavior has been the realization that regionalization of stem cells occurs early in development and this bias toward differentiation in phe- types of neurons or cells characteristic of a particular part of the brain appears to persist even after prolonged culture. We have therefore included additional chapters on olf- tory epithelial stem cells and retinal stem cells, both of which differ in their properties from ventricular zone and subventricular zone–derived neural stem cells. It is also now clear from an analysis of mutants and transgenics where the death or self-renewal pa- way is altered that cell death regulates stem cell number. As a consequence, this second edition includes a separate chapter on cell death that summarizes the important changes in the death pathway that occur as stem cells mature. The existing chapters in the book have also been extensively revised and updated by experts who have generously c- tributed their time and expertise. The chapters have been organized along the lines of our understanding of how the nervous system develops (Fig. 1, on p. vi).

The Chemistry Of Behavior
Author: Stanislav Reinis
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 622
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book discusses a particular aspect of brain function, that of storage and retrieval of memory of past experience, in terms of neuronal plasticity. In discussing this aspect of brain functions, however, it discusses brain mecha nisms in their wider sense as well. Clearly, the central nervous system is a highly interconnected system from all points of view, and it would not be possible to understand function in terms of only a single event or only a sin gle neurotransmitter. This is true for any biochemical activity that accompanies neuronal functional activity and accompanies behavior. The authors have commendably recognized this complexity, and recognize still more the need to present information in a compact and uniform manner in spite of the tremendous expansion of our knowledge in recent years. It is a somewhat easier task to gather a set of authors and record their results for a multiauthor symposium, but it is a most admirable endeavor for two authors to summarize a field that encompasses subjects such as transmission barri ers, lipids, proteins, energy, hormones, to name a few that this book covers so well in a compact manner, and in such depth as well. Metabolism and func tion cannot really be understood without understanding structural factors, changes in membrane properties, and changes in metabolism.

Biological Neural Networks  Hierarchical Concept Of Brain Function
Author: Konstantin V. Baev
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 1998-04-30
Pages: 273
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is devoted to a novel conceptual theoretical framework of neuro science and is an attempt to show that we can postulate a very small number of assumptions and utilize their heuristics to explain a very large spectrum of brain phenomena. The major assumption made in this book is that inborn and acquired neural automatisms are generated according to the same func tional principles. Accordingly, the principles that have been revealed experi mentally to govern inborn motor automatisms, such as locomotion and scratching, are used to elucidate the nature of acquired or learned automat isms. This approach allowed me to apply the language of control theory to describe functions of biological neural networks. You, the reader, can judge the logic of the conclusions regarding brain phenomena that the book derives from these assumptions. If you find the argument flawless, one can call it common sense and consider that to be the best praise for a chain of logical conclusions. For the sake of clarity, I have attempted to make this monograph as readable as possible. Special attention has been given to describing some of the concepts of optimal control theory in such a way that it will be under standable to a biologist or physician. I have also included plenty of illustra tive examples and references designed to demonstrate the appropriateness and applicability of these conceptual theoretical notions for the neurosciences.

Publisher: Amer Physiological Society
Release Date: 1989
Pages: 722
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This volume marks the coming of age of knowledge concerning the neural and endocrine biology of the gut. It is the first volume in the Handbook of Physiology to be devoted entirely to this field. It is also the very first volume ever published that deals systematically with the biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, pharmacology, and physiology of hormonal and neural peptides of the gut. Written by some forty recognized experts, Neural and Endocrine Biology details the discoveries of a field that is now just twenty-five years old. The early chapters address general topics and provide a broad overview of the field, including information on immunocytochemistry of endocrine cells and enteric neurons and the physiological significance of hormonal, paracrine, and neural peptides. Fourteen of the volume's twenty-eight chapters are devoted to individual hormonal and neural peptides--their distribution, pharmacology, and physiological and cellular functions. The final chapter offers an overview of recently discovered peptides, including pancreastatin and two neural peptides, galanin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). Neural and Endocrine Biology will be a welcome new resource for graduate students, instructors, and active researchers and clinicians who need a complete, up-to-date reference in regulatory peptides and gastrointestinal physiology and pharmacology.
