About these proceedings


Monoamine oxidase plays a major role in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders including depressive illness, Parkinson´s disease and Alzheimer´s disease. The new generation of selective monoamine oxidase inhibitors, devoid of major side effects, has found a prominent place in the treatment of these diseases. Some of these drugs may have neuroprotective activity with prospects for treating progressive neurodegenerative diseases. The volume presents a collection of research papers on monoamine oxidase and its inhibitors. The topic is treated from the point of view of chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, neurology and psychiatry. The book serves as a quick and comprehensive reference source for obtaining the most up to date information.
