Metabolomics: Concepts and potential neuroscience applications


Journal Article (Chapter)

Metabolomics-the-omics face of biochemistry-may be considered as a global approach to capturing and understanding the metabolic network of a biological system. Metabolomics expands and complements the data obtained from the other three major-omics fields-genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics. Here, we discuss the ties between metabolomics and the fields of neuroscience, neurochemistry, and neuroenergetics, and broadly outline the possible avenues in which metabolomics may facilitate studies in the nervous system. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
