Summary

The Adrenal Medulla, 1989-1991 offers a comprehensive review of the world literature on the adrenal medulla published during this period. The book emphasizes the role of the adrenal medulla in advancing our knowledge of neuroscience; for example, the Nobel Prize-winning technique of patch clamping has been applied to stimulus-secretion coupling in adrenal chromaffin cells.
The book also discusses such topics as the ability to image the distribution of calcium within individual neural cells, the ability to measure individual packets of neurotransmitter as they are released from cells, and advances in the understanding of ionic channels, cell-to-cell interactions, cell proliferation, sympathoadrenal ontogeny, growth factors, enzymatic biosynthetic pathways, electron and proton transfer, and neural pathways. Topics covered in clinical medicine include recent progress in the transplantation of the adrenal medulla to the brain as a treatment for Parkinson's disease and the latest reports on pheochromocytoma.
The Adrenal Medulla, 1989-1991 is an essential book for neurobiologists, neurochemists, experimental biologists, physiologists, cell biologists, and informed clinicians.
