A compendium of electrophysical research on smooth muscles from an international collection of authors. This text includes discoveries in calcium stores and their relationship to contraction and to electrical changes in the membrane. A section of the book concentrates on the calcium release mechanisms in the cell, their control, and the consequence of calcium release in the cell for membrane events. It also covers the effects of chemicals released from adjacent cells. The book features both basic and clinical research and provides a range of drug development studies.
