Ashby The Interaction of Dopamine with Other Neurotransmitters in the Brain
This is the first book to present information from many scientific disciplines-behaviorla, biochemical, electrophysiological, anatomical, and medical-detailing the interaction of the neurotransmitter dopamine (DA) with other neurotransmitters or neuromodulators in the brain. Internationally recognized experts discuss the interaction of DA with monoaminergic transmitters norepinephrine, GABA, acetylcholine, and serotonin, and the neuropeptide neurotransmitter/neuromodulators neurotensin,cholecytkinin, and opioid peptides. This is also the first book to include data from positron emission tomography(PET) studies examining the interaction of neurotransmitters in the brain.

Biegon and Volkow(Eds.) Sites of Drug Action in the Human Brain This book uses th eresults of recent analyses of the regional brain distribution and binding pattern of drugs in the human brain. It specifically addresses drugs of abuse and treates the effects of various drugs on behavior and mood, as well as on metabolism and blood flow in the human brain. It also presents the methodological aspects of investigating the sites of drug action in the human brain. Because it focuses on the living human brain, this book differs from other books on the subject which primarily use the results of postmortem studies. It therefore provides valuable information on the clinical aspects of drug intoxication,addiction, and toxicity.1995,192pp.,CRC Press

Hammer (Ed.) The Neurobiology of Cocaine Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms.Recent developments of cellular, molecular, and brain imaging methods provide new evidence that chemical and molecular substrates underlie cocaine reinforcement, dependence and withdrawal.This book explores the biological bases of such effects, describing the brain circuits affected by cocaine,neuroendocrine and neurophysiological actions of cocaine, neurochemistry and pharmacology of cocaine, and cocaine effectson signal transduction, gene expression, and protein phosphorylation.It also discusses the recently cloned class of neurotransporters affected by cocaine, focusing on the effects of chronic exposure and subsequent withdrawal.1995,272pp.,CRC Press List Price:$99.95 ;Our Price:$ 90

Stjarne, Greengard, Grillner, Hokfelt and Ottoson (Eds.) MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR MECHANISMS OF NEUROTRANSMITTER RELEASE (Advances in 2nd Messenger and Phosphoprotein Research,Vol.29.) This volume reviews recent findings on the regulation of exocytotic release of neurotransmitters from nerve terminals. Coverage includes detailed analyses of quantal release of transmitters in the cental and peripheral nervous systems. These studies shed new light on the questions of whether different transmitters are released together in fixed amounts and proportions and whether and why effectors respond to such "transmitter quanta" in a quantal fashion. The book also highlights the relevance of research on neurotransmitter release to the study of various forms of synaptic plasticity, including higher functions such as learning and memory. 592pp.,201 Illus.1994.Hardbound
