International Review of Neurobiology, Supplement 1: Neurobiology of the Trace Metals Zinc and Copper represents a first report in the study of the neurobiology of zinc and copper. Topics covered by this supplementary volume include the effects of zinc deficiency; the link between acute stress and trace element metabolism; the effects of trace elements on behavior; the pathophysiology of zinc; and the role of copper in schizophrenia. This book consists of seven chapters and begins with a historical overview of zinc deficiency syndrome in humans, followed by a discussion on the metabolism of zinc, effects of its deficiency, and its biochemical functions. Gross congenital malformations in zinc-deficient rats are highlighted. The reader is then introduced to the effect of acute stress on the metabolism of a trace element; the importance of trace elements to development and behavior; and the biological effect(s) of zinc. The next chapter is devoted to idiopathic hypogeusia with dysgeusia, hyposmia, and dysosmia, its symptoms, clinical pathology, and treatment. This monograph will be of value to neurobiologists, biochemists, and nutritionists.

These books are the result of a conviction held by the editors, authors, and publisher that the time is appropriate for assembling in one place information about functions of the hippocampus derived from many varied lines of research. Because of the explosion of research into the anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and behavioral aspects of the hip pocampus, some means of synthesis of the results from these lines of research was called for. We first thought of a conference. In fact, officials in the National Institute of Mental Health suggested we organize such a conference on the hippocampus, but after a few tentative steps in this direction, interest at the federallevel waned, probably due to the decreases in federal support for research in the basic health sciences so keenly feit in recent years. However, the editors also had co me to the view that conferences are mainly valuabIe to the participants. The broad range of students (of all ages) of brain behavior relations do not profit from conference proceedings unless the proceedings are subsequently published. Furthermore, conferences dealing with the functional character of organ systems approached from many points of view are most successful after participants have become acquainted with each other's work. Therefore, we believe that a book is the best format for disseminating information, and that its publication can be the stimulus for many future conferences.

The present volume is one of a series concerned with topics considered to be of growing interest to those whose ultimate aim is the understanding of the nutrition of man. Volumes on Sweetness, Calcium in Human Biology and Sucrose: Nutritional and Safety Aspects, have already been published, and another, on Dietary Starches and Sugars in Man: A Comparison, is in preparation. Written for workers in the nutritional and allied sciences rather than for the specialist, they aim to fill the gap between the textbook on the one hand and the many publications addressed to the expert on the other. The target readership spans medicine, nutrition and the biological sciences generally and includes those in the food, chemical and allied industries who need to take account of advances in these fields relevant to their products. Funded by industry but with an independent status, the Inter national Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) is a non-profit organization founded to deal objectively with the numerous health and safety issues that today concern industry internationally. ILSI sponsors scientific research, organizes conferences and publishes monographs relative to these problems. London Ian Macdonald March 1988 Series Editor Preface This volume has been prepared at a time when interest in both the biological roles of zinc and its nutritional significance is growing rapidly.
