This volume in a series on neuroscience provides an overview of the last 20 years of research into the biochemistry, physiology,pharmacology and clinical therapeutic potential of adenosine and its analogues in the nervous system. Among the topics covered are adenosine transport in nervous systemtissues, adenosine production and metabolism and the electropharmacology of adenosine.
Research workers and graduate students in neuroscience and physiology, and interested research clinicians.
