Mechanisms of Synaptic Transmission: Bridging the Gaps (1890-1990)

Mechanisms of Synaptic Transmission: Bridging the Gaps (1890-1990) Lowest new price: $2.90
Lowest used price: $1.50
List price: $94.00
Author: Joseph D. Robinson

Synaptic transmission plays a central role in the nervous system as the mechanism that allows for chemical and electrical communication between cells and thus connects discrete elements into the functioning whole. This is a broad account of anatomical, biochemical, embryological, medical, pathological, pharmacological, and physiological studies on synaptic transmission during the hundred years beginning in 1890. During this century, the process of synaptic transmission came to be recognized not only as the most fundamental neurophysiological process, but also as a seat of pathological changes, and as the predominant site of action for drugs used to treat a wide range of psychiatric and neurological disorders. At the same time, research from these various disciplines was transformed into a new and unifying field, neuroscience. The course of these investigations reveals ingenious experiments, powerful new techniques, and imaginative insights. The author describes broadly who did what, when, where, and how (and, in cases where it is apparent, why) and uses experimental results and interpretations to display the evolutionary course to our current understanding of how nerve cells communicate: the basic principle of neural functioning. The book will be of interest to basic and clinical neuroscientists, pharmacologists, and physiologists, to historians and philosophers of the life sciences and medicine, and to their respective students.

Biological Sequence Analysis: Probabilistic Models of Proteins and Nucleic Acids Lowest new price: $34.95
Lowest used price: $5.97
List price: $62.99
Author: Richard Durbin
Brand: Cambridge University Press

Probablistic models are becoming increasingly important in analyzing the huge amount of data being produced by large-scale DNA-sequencing efforts such as the Human Genome Project. For example, hidden Markov models are used for analyzing biological sequences, linguistic-grammar-based probabilistic models for identifying RNA secondary structure, and probabilistic evolutionary models for inferring phylogenies of sequences from different organisms. This book gives a unified, up-to-date and self-contained account, with a Bayesian slant, of such methods, and more generally to probabilistic methods of sequence analysis. Written by an interdisciplinary team of authors, it is accessible to molecular biologists, computer scientists, and mathematicians with no formal knowledge of the other fields, and at the same time presents the state of the art in this new and important field.

A complete guide to choosing and using the best analyticaltechnique for the job at hand

Today's new generation of spectroscopic instrumentation allows formore accurate and varied measurements than ever before. At the sametime, increasingly powerful, user-friendly PC hardware and softwaremake running those instruments relative child's play. However,although they may have solved many of the problems traditionallyassociated with conducting molecular spectroscopic analyses, theserefinements tend to obscure inherent technical challenges which, ifnot taken into consideration, can seriously undermine a researchinitiative. Modern Techniques in Applied Molecular Spectroscopygives scientists and technicians the knowledge they need to addressthose challenges and to make optimal selection and use ofcontemporary molecular spectroscopic techniques andtechnologies.

While editor Francis Mirabella and contributors provide amplebackground information about how and why individual techniqueswork, they concentrate on practical considerations of crucialconcern to researchers working in industry. For each techniquecovered, they provide expert guidance on method selection, samplepreparation, troubleshooting, data handling and analysis, and more.Adhering principally to mid-IR molecular spectroscopic techniques,they clearly describe the guiding principles behind,characteristics of, and suitable applications for transmissionspectroscopy, reflectance spectroscopies, photoacousticspectroscopy, infrared and Raman microspectroscopy, fiber optictechniques, and emission spectroscopy.

Modern Techniques in Applied Molecular Spectroscopy is anindispensable working resource for analytical scientists andtechnicians working in an array of industries.

The ELISA Guidebook: Second Edition (Methods in Molecular Biology)

The ELISA Guidebook: Second Edition (Methods in Molecular Biology) Lowest new price: $146.87
Lowest used price: $87.66
List price: $279.99
Author: John R. Crowther

There have been very few developments that markedly affect the need to greatly revise the text from the last version of this book. This is testament to the fact that hetero- neous enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) provide ideal systems for dealing with a wide range of studies in many biological areas. The main reason for this success is test flexibility, whereby reactants can be used in different combinations, either attached passively to a solid phase support or in the liquid phase. The exploitation of the ELISA has been increased through continued development of specifically produced reagents, for example, monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies and peptide antigens coupled with the improvement and expansion of commercial products such as enzyme-linked conjugates, substrates and chromogens, plastics technology and design of microwell plates, inst- mentation advances and robotics. However, the principles of the ELISA remain the same. There has been some rearrangement of chapters plus addition of three new ones dealing with charting methods for assessing the indirect ELISA, ruggedness and robustness of tests-aspects of kit use and validation, and internal quality control and external quality management of data, respectively. These reflect the need to control what you are doing with ELISA and to exploit the method to its full extent. I do not apologize for dealing with the same areas in different ways a number of times, as it is imperative that principles are understood to allow planning, operation, and control of ELISA.

Brand: Larry W Swanson

Depending on your point of view the brain is an organ, a machine, a biological computer, or simply the most important component of the nervous system. How does it work as a whole? What are its major parts and how are they interconnected to generate thinking, feelings, and behavior? This book surveys 2,500 years of scientific thinking about these profoundly important questions from the perspective of fundamental architectural principles, and then proposes a new model for the basic plan of neural systems organization based on an explosion of structural data emerging from the neuroanatomy revolution of the 1970's
The importance of a balance between theoretical and experimental morphology is stressed throughout the book. Great advances in understanding the brain's basic plan brain have come especially from two traditional lines of biological thought- evolution and embryology, because each begins with the simple and progresses to the more complex. Understanding the organization of brain circuits, which contain thousands of links or pathways, is much more difficult. It is argued here that a four-system network model can explain the structure-function organization of the brain. Possible relationships between neural networks and gene networks revealed by the human genome project are explored in the final chapter.
The book is written in clear and sparkling prose, and it is profusely illustrated. It is designed to be read by anyone with an interest in the basic organization of the brain, from neuroscience to philosophy to computer science to molecular biology. It is suitable for use in neuroscience core courses because it presents basic principles of the structure of the nervous system in a systematic way.
