Neurochemistry of the Retina covers the proceedings of the International Symposium on the Neurochemistry of the Retina held in Athens, Greece, on August 28 – September 1, 1979. This book mainly focuses on the retina and its neurochemistry. This text is divided into eight major parts. The first part discusses the composition, metabolism, and biogenesis of membrane components. This book then explains the biochemical approaches to the study of visual cells and their relationship with the pigment epithelium, photorector shedding, and circadian rhythm. Chemical transmission of nerve signals is also tackled. This text also looks into the biochemical aspects of photoreceptor structure and function; cyclic nucleotides; and biochemical and pharmacological approaches to study the entire retina. This book concludes by explaining the neurochemical studies in retinal diseases and future research and prospective of the subject. This publication will be invaluable to ophthalmologists and students of ophthalmology.
