The Peripheral Nervous System
Anders Björklund, Tomas Hökfelt, Christer Owman
Elsevier, 1988 - Science - 687 pages
Through rapid methodological development, along with the discovery of a large number of regulatory peptides present in peripheral nerves, our understanding of the organization and function of the autonomic nervous system has entered a new era. It is now evident that the classical picture of autonomic neuro-transmission needs a profound revision within an entirely new framework. This volume seeks to elucidate some of these emerging issues.
