Brain Functions of Neuropeptides contains capita selecta on neuropeptides by leading scientists in the neurosciences. As a guide through the wealth of neuropeptide research, the authors here present current and personal views on the roles that neuropeptide functions have in the nervous ystem, and their mode of action. The authors address an audience that includes readers at the undergraduate level in life sciences, but also experts who are intersted in timely issues.
