Variation in Chemical Composition of the Nervous System: As Determined by Developmental and Genetic Factors documents the proceedings of the International Neurochemical Conference held in Oxford, 1965. The three years since the last neurochemical meeting have witnessed rapid progress in the whole field of biology, including the development of new concepts based on fresh experimental data and new technical tools. A great deal of concentrated effort have led to advances in the molecular aspects of biological processes ,which have perhaps had most to offer to the formation of new concepts of primary cellular events, especially the genetic mechanism, regulatory cell processes, and protein production. This volume contains 100 chapters that provide an overview of the state of knowledge on the genetic and developmental aspects of the central nervous system. Topics covered include the activity of a plasma logenase in the brain of the developing rat; genetic selection of rats differing in brain biochemistry; the effects of thyroid hormones on steroid deposition in developing chick brain; and developmental changes in the gamma globulins of bovine cerebrospinal fluid.
