This collection of 63 papers is derived from a satellite meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry Meeting and European Society for Neurochemistry held in Venice, Italy, in August 2005. In introducing these papers, Ali (Neurochemistry Laboratory, National Center for Toxicological Research, FDA) and Fornai (human morphology and applied biology, U. of Pisa, Italy) note the conference's goal to understand the cellular and molecular genetic mechanisms of commonly abused drugs that make them so compelling, and their similarities and differences in neurotoxicity. Findings from experimental studies are discussed for drugs including cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, nicotine, gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB)--the "date rape" drug, and organic solvents. Images show brain effects. Lacks a subject index.
