Brief Book Reviews
by Fred Plum, MD
Concepts in Pediatric Neurosurgery (Vol. 6)
Edited by Paul H . Chapman
New York, Karger, 1985
244 pp, illustrated, $74.25
The book presents relatively short summaries of papers presented at the Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery’s 1985
Nutrition and the Brain (Vol. 7, Food Constituents
Affecting Normal and Abnormal Behaviors)
Edited by Richard J . Wurtman and J . J . Wurtman
New York, Raven Press, 1985
25 7 pp, illustrated, $59.50
Contents include: Effects of Food and Nutrients on Behavior, Clinical Pharmacology of Tryptophan, Monoamine Precursors and Treatment of Psychiatric Disorders, Bulemia,
Carbohydrate Craving and Depression, Psychobiology of
Anorexia Nervosa, and Potential Effects of Aspartame. The
chapters are extensively referenced and are concerned
mainly with animal and highly experimental approaches. Several researchers conclude that the subject of their review is
either in its infancy, or surrounded by difficulties in distinguishing the primary from secondary effects of nutrition on
brains. The volume contains potentially interesting material
for those with a primary interest in nutrition.
