General description

This book emphasizes the rationale by which proteins are assigned specific functions rather than just providing facts about function. Chapters cover properties of the synapse, techniques used to elucidate aspects of release, approaches used to identify proteins involved in neurotransmitter release, aspects of synaptic transmission, proteins that transport neurotransmitters and role of phospholipids in the process. Other topics include approaches to unravel the function of proteins in vivo along with endocytosis and recycling.
