"This outstanding resource offers comprehensive presentations of the latest basic knowledge and the most advanced research on neuropeptides of the respiratory tract covering the structure, receptors, molecular biology, and function of each important neuropeptide and examining how they relate to disease. Demonstrates the utility of immunohistochemistry, autoradiography, molecular biology, smooth muscle contraction, and glandular secretion for the study of neural function both in vitro and in vivo!"
