Information resources on brain chemistry.

Neurochemistry is a interdisciplinary branch between chemistry, biochemistry and neurosciences concerning to chemical aspects of the nervous system, structure and function and is also devoted to the study of neurochemicals including neurotransmitters, and other molecules (psychotropic, neuropeptides, etc.) that affect the function of neurons.

As the founder of Neurochemistry applies Johann Ludwig Wilhelm Thudichum (1829-1901; "brain chemistry").

In the list below you will find resources to neurochemical information. See also: Neurochemie (german).

Basic Neurochemistry: Molecular, Cellular and Medical Aspects

Molecular, Cellular and Medical Aspects, the outstanding and comprehensive classic text on neurochemistry, is now newly updated and revised in its Seventh Edition. This well-established text has been accepted worldwide as a resource for postgraduate trainees and teachers in neurology, psychiatry, and basic neuroscience, as well as for graduate and postgraduate students and instructors in the neurosciences. It is an excellent source of current information on basic biochemical processes in brain function and disease for qualifying examinations and continuing medical education.

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology

Stroke is a global health problem affecting approximately 15 million people annually in the world and about 700,000 in the United States. It is the third leading cause of death and the most common cause of disability in most developed countries.

Acute Ischemic Injury and Repair in the Nervous System is intended to provide the most up-to-date knowledge of the mechanisms of neuronal death and repair after stroke. It is our belief that this volume of the Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology provides an excellent review of the tremendous advances of the past decades in the neurochemical and molecular biological aspects of cerebral ischemia. It is hoped that these advances will provide an impetus for basic scientists and clinicians to further their translational research and to promote the insights for development of therapeutic interventions for stroke.
