This book brings together for the first time state-of-the-art research from both the basic sciences and the clinical fields to present an in-depth discussion of the numerous effects of cocaine. The issues discussed include metabolism and distribution of cocaine, behavioral and electrophysiological actions of cocaine, clinical aspects of cocaine associated with addiction and abuse on cardiovascular function, and exposure of infants to cocaine during gestation. The unique, multidisciplinary perspective of this book regarding on-going research on cocaine and drug abuse will be useful to researchers, clinicians, health care practitioners, and graduate students who need to stay abreast of the most current information available on this drug.
