Neuroscience Symposia, Volume 11),edited by W . Maxwell C w a n and James A . Fewendelli, 454 pp, illustrated,
$1 7.50, Society fm Neuroscience, Bethesda, I977
Starting with the 1975 meeting, the Society for Neuroscience has published selected examples of its outstanding
symposia in an annual monograph. The effort has been to
group topics that have at least a semblance of a tie to one
another, as reflected in the title of this book. Subtopics
include genetics, extrinsic influences on the developing
neuron, role of calcium in transmitter release, and biochemical sequelae of synaptic action. The research is up to
the minute, and the authors uniformly share a high level of
experience and quality.

of the book is devoted to the clinical problem of stroke by

whether the various technical procedures have any effect
on long-term outcome or the incidence of subsequent neurological crisis.
