The series CNS Neurotransmitters and Neuromodulators is destined to be the definitive reference work on the physiology and pharmacology of the central nervous system. Written by an outstanding group of international authors, chapters cover a wide range of interdisciplinary aspects of the subject.
This first volume includes an in-depth examination of acetylcholine, ranging from the localization of synthetic enzymes through electrophysiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology to behavioral importance in learning and memory. This indispensable and comprehensive reference keeps you abreast of new developments in several areas of neuroscience.
