Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 14: Endocrinology, Neuroendocrinology, Neuropeptides, Part II focuses on the research on neuropeptides, endocrinology, and neuroendocrinology. Composed of various contributions of able researchers, the first part of the book is divided into eight chapters. These chapters cover studies on the physiology, biochemistry, and localization of suspected hypothalamic releasing and inhibiting hormones. Researchers show how hormones react in different controlled environments. The second part of the selection deals with the use of in vitro systems in studying neuroendocrine regulation and steroid hormone action. This part is composed of four chapters wherein the extensive discussion of the processes involved is supported by experiments conducted on animals. The third part of the book covers the use of neurotransmitters in the control of anterior pituitary function. Composed of nine chapters, this part offers a thorough investigation of how neurotransmitters function in different controlled conditions. The fourth part of the selection, which is comprised of eight chapters, focuses on the function of neuropeptides as neurotransmitters. Studies are presented to elaborate the processes how neuropeptides can be converted to act as neurotransmitters. The last part, which covers nine chapters, deals exclusively with research on the effects of endogenous opioid peptides on the neuroendocrine system. The book is a great find for those interested in biochemistry.
