The excitatory amino acids (EAAs) as neurotransmitters are of vast and rapidly expanding interest. This volume relates current knowledge of the EAAs back to the synapse, where many of their physiologically relevant actions must occur. Excitatory Amino Acids and Synaptic Transmission is the first book to do so. A multinational team of experts have contributed not only novel, but in some cases, controversial material, reflecting the competition between research groups on both sides of the Atlantic.
