Metabolic Aspects of Some Diseases of Peripheral Nerves

  • J. Wilson
  • R. H. S. Thompson

Abstract

One of the most exciting developments in the past two decades has been the intimate study of the correlation of form and function at the ultrastructural level. Axonal and synaptic activities are now sufficiently well understood to allow an outline definition at molecular level, and it is possible to envisage an understanding of neuraxial function entirely in biochemical terms.
