Modern neurology is becoming daily more complex and the practising physician finds it difficult to know the significance of particular advances in neurochemistry, neuroimmunology and molecular biology of the brain. In this special edition, we have brought together a number of learned scientists who have looked at common everyday neurological problems and given us insights as to how to look anew at the pathophysiology of these diseases and to institute effective treatment. We are certain that these papers will be timely and pertinent for the clinician and be of help to him both on the wards and in the clinic. We are sad to relate that one of the designated contributors to this special edition, Dr David Horrobin, has died. David was a unique man in many ways as true friend, physician scientist and colleague. It is a truism to say that one always felt better after meeting him where, with his unique infectious enthusiasm, jovial and kind spirit, he would always impart new knowledge in a novel way of looking at a difficult scientific problem. We dedicate this issue to his memory.
