NEUROTOX '91 used to be the fourth assembly in a sequence which began in 1979. The '91 assembly, like its predecessors, used to be held below the patronage of the Society of Chemical undefined, and regardless of the unlucky proximity of hostilities within the Arabian Gulf attracted a really overseas mixture of business and educational pesticide scientists. This quantity includes the textual content of invited papers learn on the assembly and provides the dramatic advancements which so excited those that attended. the possibility of molecular neurobiology for getting to know objective websites for neurotoxicants is now turning out to be realised. those stories, together with advancements in molecular imaging and modelling, offer new oppor tunities for chemists and biologists to achieve insights into molecular interactions underlying intoxication. Molecular thoughts have additionally enabled swift advert vances on a moment entrance, the place the cloning of genes controlling pesticide resistance must have a profound impression on our figuring out of this commercially very important challenge. the knowledge of molecular occasions will definitely be very important in destiny advancements in chemical regulate of pests; even though, the worth of comprehend ing the way the worried method controls behaviour and the way behaviour may be changed through chemical compounds of bathtub artificial and usual origins was once highlighted. common items and their artificial analogues have persevered to supply new and engaging molecules that are already proving their worthy as instruments for the neuroscientist and should supply leads for advertisement synthesis.

FEDOROVA GAPON Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, 194223 St. Petersburg, Russia INTRODUCTION There is considerable evidence for the involvement of glutamate and probably other excitatory amino acids in synaptic transmission. Recent rapid progress in the investigation of glutamatergic mechanisms is due mainly to the discovery of sufficiently specific chemical tools affecting the postsynaptic responses of glutamate. I - 3 A new step in answer to this problem is connected with the introduction of neurotoxins isolated from spider venoms into pharmacological studies of glutamatergic transmission (see review4 ).
