Description

The study of drug action has benefitted greatly from the development and use of in vivo model systems.

No single model system provides all of the possible advantages. At one end, mammalian models allow the study of complex behavioral patterns and the most complex of cognitive functioning. At the other end, models using simple organisms such as C. elegans allow the application of the most sophisticated and recent molecular biology and other innovative techniques. The major purpose of the present book is to highlight another model-one that we believe occupies a uniquely important position.show more
