The photo at the following web page is being reproduced right here, on the request of the partici­ pants within the complicated learn Workshop "Amino Acid Availability and mind functionality in future health and Disease". I displayed this limewood carving, entitled "Neurochemistry", in the course of my remaining comments to this terribly stimulating and efficient workshop so ably geared up via my collaborator Dr. Gerald Huether. We scientists desire stable legs to hold us via the entire twists and turns of our educational careers. we should always even have, because it have been, a reserve leg convenient, to assist us remain upright while this occupation ends. My "third leg" is wooden carving. the belief for "Neurochemis­ test" got here to me within the aircraft wearing me to the congress of the foreign Neuro­ chemical Society in Jerusalem. we'd like the fingers for our meticulous experimental paintings, and no less than one ear to hear the messages our neurons ship us. many years in the past it should were untimely to carry a workshop in this topic. Now, even though, the time was once well suited to permit an outline of the prestige of present re­ seek, and to show the promising new openings it has created. there's no doubt that the booklet to be released because of this workshop should be, for the following years at the very least, the traditional textual content at the topic. Hearty because of all audio system for his or her awesome con­ tributions and to all contributors for the energetic, uninhibited and stimulating discussion.
