Modulation of Neurochemical Transmission, Volume II, documents the proceedings of the 3rd Congress of the Hungarian Pharmacological Society held in Budapest, 1979. It provides a summary of biochemical, electrophysiological, morphological, and pharmacological findings on the modulation of transmitter release. The 45 papers contained in this volume come from the most important laboratories and the contributors are among the world's foremost experts. Key topics discussed include the presynaptic inhibition of neurotransmitters; the properties of pre- and postsynaptic α receptors; histochemical mapping of dopamine neurons in the olfactory brain; neurophysiological aspects of dopaminergic supersensitivity; the role of ATPases in neurochemical transmission; and interaction between noradrenaline and vanadium on brain membrane ATPase. Also presented are papers on neurotransmission in the rat portal vein; the function of cysteine metabolism in rat brain; presynaptic dopamine receptors in sympathetic heart nerves of cats; LSD-induced behavioral effects in rats; and modulation of posttetanic response in the guinea-pig ileum.
