Pulsatility is now recognized as a nearly ubiquitous functional feature of neuroendocrine systems. This volume presents a comprehensive guide to the established and emerging technologies being used to study this perplexing phenomenon. Molecular, cellular, physiological, and mathematical approaches are described and protocols for the following are included: in vitro methods for studying neuroendocrine pulsatility; in vivo sampling and recording procedures for monitoring pulsatility in several species; and improved quantitative and analytical methods for the study of hormone pulsatility.
