Neuroscience Research, Volume 4 covers papers on a varied group of studies, ranging from synaptic transmission and local anesthetic action to the immobility reflex ("animal hypnosis") and control of food intake. The book presents papers on the mechanisms of synaptic transmission; the acetylcholine system and neural development; and the site of action and active form of local anesthetics. The text also includes papers on biological rhythms and their control in neurobehavioral perspective; neurophysiologic studies of the immobility reflex ("animal hypnosis" and the hepatic receptors and the neurophysiological mechanisms controlling feeding behavior. Neuroscientists, physiologists, and psychiatrists will find the book useful.
