The Noradrenergic Neurons examines the mechanisms that regulate the release and synthesis of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline. Noradrenaline (or norepinephrine) and the physiological activity of the cells that manufacture and release it, play an important role in response to stress and the development of resistance to stress, as well as psychological mood itself. This book discusses the response of the various nonadrenergic receptor subtypes to noradrenaline, and the long-lasting changes that underlie the striking plasticity of function manifested by noradrenergic cells, which in turn are reflected in observable behavioral plasticity In recent years there has been no single book that presents an up-to-date synthesis of current knowledge on the biochemical, anatomical, and physiological aspects of this important group of brain and peripheral nervous system cells and their function in the whole behaving organism, and this book aims to fill that gap. This is informative reading for students of physiological psychology, neurochemistry, and medicine.

Industry Reviews

"...a very well-written and readable treatise on noradrenergic neurons that includes anatomical, biochemical, electrophysiological, pharmacological, and behavioral data. As such, this book should be of interest to neuroscientists in general, as well as to those wishing to explore monoamine neuroscience in particular." Gary B. Glavin, Quarterly Review of Biology
