The group of chemicals known collectively as neurotransmitters form the basis of a complex communication system between nerve cells. It is a system which is constantly subtly refined and regulated via the modulating action of other neurotransmitters, circulating hormones, the products of local tissues and the action of various drugs (from both medicinal and socially abused sources). Within this book, acknowledged authorities concisely describe the basic mechanisms involved in neurotransmitter release modulation in the different parts of the nervous system. This includes a quantitative evaluation of the significance of modulation, and a summary of both its biological ramifications and potential clinical relevance. The clear illustrations and descriptions create a valuable and easy to use reference resource for the non-specialist reader and neuroscientist alike. Clinicians, researchers and students should all find its contents of interest.

Review quote

'This is an excellent book, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading ... a valuable reference source for both non-specialists and neuroscientists alike. Indeed I scrapped my current lecture reference handout on this topic and replaced it with a reference to this book ... modestly priced at GBP27.95 paperback ... it doesn't overwhelm the students with unnecessary detail ... very popular with my students already.' T. C. Cunnane, Experimental Physiology '... a series of incisive and interesting accounts ... excellent clear presentation.' Roger Barker, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry '... very much a book for the neuropharmacologist and neurophysiologist ... a well compiled and neatly produced volume.' Andre Jacowski, British Journal of Neurosurgery '... provides a detailed insight into 'a vivid science' relevant to much of current clinical practice.' British Medical Journal
