Advances in Dopamine Research documents the proceedings of a satellite symposium to the 8th International Congress of Pharmacology held in Okayama, Japan, July 1981. The importance of dopamine in brain function is reflected in this volume book by the chapters on the neurochemical, behavioral, neuroanatomical, and electrophysiological aspects of dopamine in the central nervous system. Dopamine receptor agonists and antagonists enjoy widespread use in the treatment of various brain disorders. A comprehensive account of research on the actions and mechanisms of action of drugs which affect central dopaminergic pathways is included in this volume. Also presented are accounts of the importance of dopamine and dopamine receptors in the periphery. It is hoped that this volume will be of interest to neuroscientists and pharmacologists, and indeed to all who are interested in clinical and scientific aspects of dopamine and other neurotransmitters.
