Neurochemistry is a flourishing academic field that contributes to our understanding of molecular, cellular and medical neurobiology. As a scientific discipline, neurochemistry studies the role of chemicals that build the nervous system, it explores the function of neurons and glial cells in health and disease, it discovers aspects of cell metabolism and neurotransmission, and it reveals how degenerative processes are at work in the nervous system.

A selective overview of the current research in this rapidly expanding field. A valuable resource for new and established investigators of the aging brain, this volume reviews critical studies of brain aging in new animal models.
The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cortex than any other. Despite being protected by the thick bones of the skull, the human brain is susceptible to damage and disease.

We review the common themes, the network models and the mathematical formalism underlying our studies about different stages in the evolution of the human brain. These studies discuss the evolution of cortical networks in terms of their computations.
