Minireviews of the Neurosciences from Life Sciences is a collection of minireviews of research in the neurosciences and originally published by the Journal of Life Sciences. These minireviews cover a wide range of topics such as the function and organization of the chromaffin vesicle; taste receptor proteins; the role of cyclic nucleotides in visual excitation; and regulation of tryptophan and tyrosine hydroxylase. Comprised of 34 chapters, this volume begins with a discussion on Na,K-ATPase, followed by an analysis of the function and organization of the chromaffin vesicles of the adrenal medulla. Subsequent chapters focus on the nerve growth factor and the acetylcholine receptor; sympathetic regulation of thyroid hormone secretion; the role of cyclic AMP in the action of antidiuretic hormone on the kidney; and neurochemical correlates of synaptically active amino acids. The role of calcium in the central effects of biogenic amines is also examined, along with the brain mechanisms underlying motor control, molecular coding of memory, and opiate receptors. This book should be of value to teachers, researchers, and students.
