Advances in Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Volume 2: Neurotransmitters contains the proceedings of the 7th International Congress of Pharmacology held in Paris, France, in 1978. The papers explore advances in the understanding of neurotransmitters, their pharmacology, and their therapeutic applications. Topics covered range from the functions of GABA to the interdependence of neurotransmitter systems in the central nervous system (CNS). This volume is comprised of 24 chapters and opens with a discussion on the role of GABA systems in Huntington's disease and schizophrenia. The reader is then introduced to the stereospecific actions of GABA analogues; interactions between serotonin and noradrenalin containing neurons; immunofluorescent staining of serotonin in the CNS; and plasticity of transmitter functions in sympathetic neurons developing in cell culture. The following chapters explore the molecular mechanisms underlying the modulation of catecholamine release from the adrenal medulla; pre-and postsynaptic regulation of catecholamine neurotransmitters; the role of GABA-ergic component in the mechanism of action of neurotropic drugs; and pre-and postsynaptic action of GABA in the mammalian spinal cord. This book will be of interest to practitioners in biosciences, pharmacology, physiology, and medicine.
