In covering the field of autonomic neuroeffector mechanisms this book provides the base-line and philosophy from which the other books on specialised aspects of the autonomic nervous system will follow. The multi-disciplinary coverage in this text includes histology, pharmacology, biochemistry and physiology. There are details of fine structure, co-transmission, signal transduction and several chapters describing the biochemistry of synthesis, storage, release and inactivation of neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine, monoamines, purines and peptides.
