Receptors in the Human Nervous System
This work surveys the distribution of neuro-transmitter receptors in the human brain and spinal cord. It features 200 photographs of autoradiograms demonstrating the distribution of receptor subtypes for the classical monoamine transmitters, the excitatory and inhibitory amino acids, and others, as well as discussing codistribution and possible interactions among receptors. The book features data on the distribution of neuro-transmitter receptors in the human brain and spinal cord and numerous photographs of radio-labelled receptor populations.
