Greengard, P. Fidia Research Foundation Neuroscience Award Lectures
Eric R Kandel, Paul Greengard, Michael D Gershon, Gerald D. Fischbach. Fidia Research Foundation neuroscience award lectures, 1986
The Fidia Research Foundation annually honors distinguished investigators in the neurosciences and invites them to contribute to a special volume of timely review articles on significant developments in their particular areas of research. Because of the eminent stature of the award-winning authors, and their coverage of advances that are opening up new vistas for future research, the books are uniquely suited for use as teaching aids in most neuroscience courses. Volume 1 of this book series contains review articles by Eric R. Kandel, Paul Greengard, Michael D. Gershon, and Gerald D. Fischbach, the recipients of the awards given in the first year of this program. Dr. Kandel analyzes results of his research group's pioneering studies on molecular mechanisms underlying short-term and long-term memory in Aplysia. Dr. Greengard examines the role of protein phosphorylation in neuronal function. Dr. Gershon presents new insights into neural development derived from his groundbreaking studies of the enteric nervous system. Dr. Fischbach presents findings on nerve-muscle and interneuronal synapse formation obtained from his research group's studies of isolated embryonic chick neurons and muscle fibers maintained in sparse cell culture.
