The great progress in research on the biogenic amines over the past two decades has touched every field of medicine and has led to important therapeutic advances, such as levodopa for treatment of parkinsonism, and to major new concepts of brain dysfunction in various diseases and of the mechanisms of drug action. Less glamorous, but no less important, are recent developments in the study of the amino acid precursors of the biogenic amines. Some notion of these developments and of their future value may be gained from this proceedings of a symposium held May 1973 at the Ciba Foundation in
Aromatic Amino Acids in the Brain.. Ann Intern Med. 1975;82:599–600. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-82-4-599_3
