The Binding of Alcohol to Brain Membranes
It has been our thesis that the primary action of alcohol in the central nervous system is on cell membranes. The conceptual and experimental background for such a contention has been reviewed to a large extent by Grenell (1957, 1959, 1971), Kalant (1971), Seeman (1972) and, in certain related respects by Mullins (1954).
