Neurochemistry is a interdisciplinary branch between chemistry, biochemistry and neurosciences concerning to chemical aspects of the nervous system, structure and function and is also devoted to the study of neurochemicals including neurotransmitters, and other molecules (psychotropic, neuropeptides, etc.) that affect the function of neurons.
As the founder of Neurochemistry applies Johann Ludwig Wilhelm Thudichum (1829-1901; brain chemistry).
In the list below you will find resources to neurochemical information. See also: Neurochemie (german).
