Minireviews of the Neurosciences from Life Sciences discusses the regulation of tryptophan and tyrosine hydroxylase. This book also addresses the neurochemical correlations of synaptically active amino acids. This book deals first with the role of calcium in the central effects of biogenic amines; neuroendocrinology of human sleep; factors in central serotonergic synapse regulation; noradrenergic mediation of traumatic spinal cord; role of cyclic nucleotides in visual excitation; and function and organization of chromaffin vesicle. Other chapters consider the analysis of nerve growth factor, the sympathetic regulation of thyroid hormone secretion, and the mechanism if trans-synaptic enzyme induction. A study of the functions of the catecholamines and acetylcholine in endocrine regulation is presented. The final chapters examine the effects of brain monoamines in male sexual behavior and the behavior of L-dopa in Parkinson’s disease. The book can provide useful information to neurologists, students, and researchers.
