The "Neuroscience Perspectives" series provides multidisciplinary reviews in one of the most diverse and rapidly advancing fields in the life sciences. The recent discovery of cannabinoid receptors and endogenous cannabinoid receptor ligands begins an exciting new phase of cannabinoid research. These studies will extend beyond the realms of pharmacology and molecular biology into the realms of physiology and pathophysiology. Research in this area will lead to a better understanding of how the body functions in both health and disease and will aid in developing new medicines. By bringing together the most recent research in this area and by focusing on possible future developments, this book aims to stimulate much needed input from a wide range of disciplines.
