Oxford University Press, 1988 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 379 pages
Long thought to be unimportant in central nervous system activity, epinephrine is now known to play a key role in the brain's regulation of blood pressure, cardiovascular function, and other autonomic activities. This encyclopedic volume, written by leading international researchers, offers a comprehensive account of the chemical neuroanatomy, genetics, chemistry, and pharmacology of CNS epinephrine and its effects on behavior and autonomic function.
