Salivary Glands and their Secretions covers the proceedings of the conference held at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The book focuses on the structure and functions of secreting organs and the composition, mechanism, and control of secretions.
The selection first reviews the comparative aspects of the structure and functions of the salivary glands; electron microscopy of induced changes in the salivary glands of rats; and the action of thyroid and adrenal glands on the submaxillary glands of mice. The book then takes a look at hormonal influences on the cytology and physiology of salivary glands and hormones and inanition.
The book ponders on studies on the physiology of rat and mouse submaxillary glands and hormonal control of the nerve growth factor content in the submaxillary glands of mice. The text also examines central nervous representation of salivary secretion, secretory nerves of the salivary glands, and changes in salivary flow produced by variations in fluid and electrolyte balance.
The selection is a valuable source of data for readers interested in the structure and functions of the salivary glands.
