Apprentices to Genius: A tribute to Solomon H. Snyder, a volume in the Advances in Pharmacology series, presents a tribute to Dr. Solomon H. Snyder, highlighting chapters submitted from a broad range of his students. It covers many different areas of neuroscience and pharmacology, with this volume exploring how receptor binding and drug discovery, the emerging role of glutamate in the pathophysiology of mental illness, nitric oxide signaling in neurodegeneration and cell death, carboxypeptidase E and the identification of novel neuropeptides as potential therapeutic targets, the regulation of mitochondrial functions by TSPO, clozapine and its translational investigation, and more.
