This paper includes proposals for the so-called minimum structure-function classifications of regulatory peptides (RPs) for neurophysiologists and neurochemists and for senior and post-graduate students specializing in the area of neurochemistry and neurophysiology. It is suggested that such classifications should be updated every year on the basis of modern data on RPs and the comments of scientists and high school teachers.
