Protein and Enzyme Changes with Brain Development

  • Elizabeth R. Einstein
Part of the Advances in Behavioral Biology book series (ABBI, volume 8)

Abstract

Recent studies have focused on the biochemical changes occurring in the process of myelination, an important measure of brain maturation. Although documented earlier by light and electron-microscopic techniques that the most pronounced alteration to occur during brain development is in the myelin, not until recently were attempts made to relate these findings to biochemical aspects of the myelin (for review, see Davison and Peters, 1970; Mokrasch, 1971; Norton 1972).
