Neuroregulation is a challenging and rapidly developing field that holds the key to many currently intractable medical conditions from nervous and mental diseases to stress-related disorders. Advances in Neuroregulation mirrors the broad scope of research in this area with topics ranging from new concepts on the immune system and on the action of antidepressants to the evolution and development of the autonomic nervous system. In addition, the latest research findings are presented for behavioural disorders and medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Another area of emphasis is the body's responses to stress and the effect of neuroactive agents in the treatment of stress-related conditions. Many chapters are devoted to the progress being made at the cellular and molecular level, including areas such as: - the conditions for culture of different types of neural cells - conformational diseases and the protein folding problem - vasoactive intestinal polypeptide release from pancreatic islets - the effect of melatonin and corticosterone on macrophages Here, in a book that expands the frontiers of neuroscience, researchers into neuroregulation at the molecular and cellular levels as well as those working at the clinical and systemic levels will find important results relating to their field.
