  • Description

    Advances in Pharmacological Research and Practice, Volume 2: Receptors and Centrally Acting Drugs presents the proceeding of the 4th Congress of the Hungarian Pharmacological Society, held in Budapest, Hungary in 1985. This book presents a comprehensive view of the developments in the fields of receptors and centrally acting drugs as well as in pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism. Organized into two sections encompassing 25 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of prejunctional regulation of neuromuscular transmission. This text then explores the whole-body autoradiography that is used extensively in toxicological research and screening. Other chapters consider the three major classes of models used in pharmacokinetics. This book discusses as well the various aspects of melanin–drug interactions. The final chapter deals with the investigation on the melanin affinity of amphetamine derivatives. This book is a valuable resource for pharmacologists, pharmacokineticists, and researchers.
