Metabolism by In Vivo NMR: The Goal of Proteomics
- This book is unique in linking in vivo 13C NMR measurements of neuronal activity and energetics with applications to functional imaging and certain disease states
- Provides a fundamental neurochemical explanation of brain activity applicable to functional imaging, theories of neuronal activity and disease states, e.g. epilepsy, psychiatric diseases and developmental disorders
- Novel and potentially controversial
- Will inspire future research directions.
