Chemical markers have brought important new dimensions to the studies of the brain. As a result of this development, the chemical anatomy of the neurons system is being explored in great detail. This new functional neuroanatomy has demonstrated new organizations of perikaryal groupings of neurons and pathways from these cells which often follow unexpected courses.
The field of chemical identification has recently been improved by methods reported in this volume, e.g. serotonin locatization and direct labelling of cholinergic neurons. The new techniques provide a ''new pair of glasses'' for everyone working in this field. This volume will be of great interest for researchers in neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy, immunochemistry, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience and cell biology.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
