One of the interesting things about neurophysiology history is that
the signalling mechanisms were 'suspected' by inference long before the
technologies for investigating them in detail were developed.  So, in
spite of the tremendous amount that has been learned about the details
of synaptic transmission, a surprising amount of the older material (classics) 
still have a lot of conceptual value in learning the subject !  That's my 
feeling, as an interested non-specialist anyway.
