`This nicely written book presents a comprehensive summary of
neurobiological concepts on synapses, their function, and some
specific patterns. It is a valuable addition to the libraries of
neuroresearchers and graduate students and may serve as a reference
source about synapses. Biological and medical libraries should
perhaps have multiple copies of this book because it will
eventually become essential reading for neuroscience courses.'
Konstantin V. Slavin, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal, 1995
`No attempt is made to be all inclusive in scope or detail, rather a thoughtful glimpse is provided to stimulate our thinking on future research. The author has succeeded in bringing together evidence from multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the synapse with the aim of communication, summarization, and provoking comment.'
Douglas E. Brenneman, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy 12 (1997)
