Clinical Neurochemistry, Volumes 1 and 2
Edited by Heiman S . Bachelard, George C . Lunt,
and C . David Marsden
London, Academic, 1986
Volume 1: 268 pp, iIlustrated, $49.50
Volume 2: 196 pp, ilustrated, $45.00
The first volume contains a relatively standard chapter on
'iuntington's disease by Drs Bud and Coyle, followed by an
exhaustively long monograph by Drs Harrison and Behan on
myasthenia gravis. Volume 2 contains a moderately lengthy
chapter on senile dementia by Drs Kellett and Bachelard,
followed by a long chapter on clinical features and pathophysiology of demyelinating diseases. The authors are highly
respected but one wonders why, in light of the rapid changes
that occur in basic science understanding of human disease,
hardcover formats and prices between $45 and 50 were chosen as vehicles to bring these papers to the reader.

Excitatory Amino Acids and Epilepsy: Advances in
Experimental Medicine and Biology, Vol 203
Edited by Robert Schruarn and YehaRel Ben-Ari
New York, Plenum, 1986
735 pp, iktrated, $105 .OO
This volume contains the proceedings of a symposium devoted to excitatory amino acids and epilepsy held in September 1985. The neurophathology of excitatory amino acids is
one of the leading areas of interest in the efforts to answer a
major question: why do cells exposed to a variety of hyperphysiological or metabolical insults die? In this volume a
number of outstanding experts address the question, focusing mainly on changes in neurons and, to a lesser degree, on
permeability changes in the blood-brain barrier. Curiously,
the long neglected but increasingly respected glial cell was
not invited to the meeting.

an excellent introduction to the subject. Chapters describing
the hardware and software of image analysis, quantitative
autoradiography, and image analysis work stations of the future will make this monograph an invaluable addition to the
libraries of even those already experienced in these techniques.
