This volume provides a full description of current knowledge about the neuronal mechanisms regulating the heart. It gives a coherent overview of the function of populations of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems that are involved in maintaining cardiac function. Recently developed concepts about the function of afferent and efferent autonomic neurons regulating the heart, as well as those interposed between, are presented in a comprehensive fashion from the level of central neurons to those innervating the heart.
