Funktionen des Bewusstseins( )

6 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everybody who thinks or speaks possesses consciousness? but nobody is capable of defining exactly what consciousness is. The phenomenon?consciousness?, therefore, is a persistent enigma which is being continually addressed by various disciplines. This volume encompasses the functions of consciousness as analysed by a consortium of scholars from the life sciences and humanities. Empirical results taken from psychiatry and psychology, linguistic and philosophical act and speech analyses, as well as, historical perspectives are all placed in context with one another

Pharmacology of antihypertensive therapeutics by D Ganten( Book )

13 editions published in 1990 in English and German and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook provides a complete state-of-the-art discussion of antihypertensive agents; it describes chemical, experimental and clinical pharmacological data as well as clinical experience with drugs which are presently being used or shortly to be introduced on the market. Each major class of antihypertensive drugs is treated exhaustively in separate chapters with full references, chemical formulae, and numerous figures and tables. The contributing authors are international experts well-known in their respective fields. New areas of drug development are extensively examined and give the reader excellent insight into the directions in which the drug market is moving. Two highlights are the special chapters devoted to toxicity testing of antihypertensive drugs and traditions of antihypertensive therapy on different continents. An extremely practical catalogue of antihypertensive drugs with international generic and trade names and cross-referencing is included at the end of the handbook. For the practicing physician, it is imperative to have up-to-date and full unbiased information not only on the classical first line drugs, but also on the many new drugs being developed at the present time. In this handbook he will be able to obtain background information as well as practical advice for therapy with respect to differential therapy, side effects, combination of drugs and counterindications. The experimental pharmacologist will find detailed chemical and experimental information and complete references
Sleep, clinical and experimental aspects by D Ganten( Book )

8 editions published in 1982 in 3 languages and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no doubt that a major problem of present day research workers, especially in the life sciences, is the plethora of publications of all kinds, abstracts, short communications, full papers in journals of varying quality, reviews and proceedings of symposia with, in addition, an unprecedented duplication of publications. Even for experts working in the field, it is almost impossible to keep an up-to-date view of all current research articles. The Western grant and career system encourages scientists to publish as much as possible. The editors and publishers of our new series are convinced that the format of Current Topics in Neuroendocrinology leads a way out of this confusion. Each volume is conceived as a concise up-to-date textbook on one well-defined and currently exciting subject. Different from classic textbooks, however, the speed of publication compares favorably with that of many journals; this ensures an immediacy which is im­ possible in textbooks. On the other hand, topics to be included in this series are also sufficiently reliable, with enough work being done to treat them from several aspects. Each volume will supply four to six chapfers treating such a broad topic as neuroendocrinology from several points of view, for example, anatomic, electrophysiologic, endocrine and behavioral views. Wh~re clinical data are immediately available, they will be included. No other 36Iles treating the nervous or endocrine systems provides such a coordinated set of chapters on an interesting topic in each volume
Neuroendocrinology of mood by D Ganten( Book )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with the various neurotransmitters (amino acids, biogenic amines, peptides) and their role in the control of behaviour and mood, both from the experimental and from the clinical and pharmacological point of view. The book provides a detailed discussion of how biological rhythms relate to changes in mood, and how the hypothalamus and pituitary hormones can be related to mood changes. Basic hints for diagnosis are also considered
Behavioral aspects of neuroendocrinology by D Ganten( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and German and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Latest issue in the CURRENT TOPICS IN NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY se- ries which has been gaining a great deal of reputation as a primary source for reviews in neuroendocrinology and related areas in the past few years
Adrenal actions on brain( Book )

10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stimulus-secretion coupling in neuroendocrine systems by D Ganten( Book )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of electrical signalling in the control of endocrine secretions by the brain has been clear for many years. Recently, the influences of hormones on synthetic events in neuroendocrine cells have raised new questions concerning the peptides released from such neurons. This volume concentrates on the relation between these two fields and asks how electrical action potentials facilitate secretion of substances from nerve cells which control endocrine events. While stimulus-secretion coupling has been studied extensively in other physiological contexts, this is the first treatment of the phenomenon in an exclusively neuroendocrine setting

Molekularmedizinische Grundlagen von para- und autokrinen Regulationsstörungen mit 36 Tabellen by D Ganten( )

8 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The generation of novel redox systems under nano-space control is one of the most exciting fields in present inorganic and supramolecular chemistry. The authors have drawn together the newest information on the construction of such novel redox systems using nano-space control of complexation or molecular chain-induced spaces and metal- or self-assembled spaces through combining techniques in coordination, supra-molecular, and biomimetic chemistry. Such design on the nano level produces hybrid conjugated systems composed of transition and synthetic metals, metallohosts, redox-active self-assembled monolayers of helical peptides, metal-assisted DNA based pairs, photoactive antibody systems, chiral rotaxanes, and redox-active imprinted polymers. In the future, these systems will be the basis for novel selective electron-transfer reactions as well as new functional materials and catalysts

Salt and hypertension : dietary minerals, volume homeostatis, and cardiovascular regulation by R Rettig( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Controversy regarding the wisdom of a high salt intake has been with us for 5000 years. In the Nei Ching, the oldest of the extant medical writings, the Yellow Emperor observed, "Hence, if too much salt is in the food, the pulse hardens, tears make their appearance, and the complexion changes". At about the same period in history, Job asked the question, "Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt?" It is not apparent whether or not the Almighty provided a clear answer. The connection between dietary salt intake and hypertension was appreciated following the observations of AMBARD, BEAUJARD, VOLLHARD, ALLEN, and others. However, DAHL emphasized this relationship, as demonstrated by his epidemiological observations, his studies in human subjects, and his development of a genetically mediated form of salt-sensitive hypertension in rats. DAHL and his followers argued that hypertension was a disease of acculturation, or even of self-abuse. Undaunted by skeptics such as PICKERING, they suggested that if Western man would merely curtail his intake of the granular condiment, hypertension would not develop and blood pressure would not increase with age. Bucolic native societies were given as examples where such cardiovascular bliss was readily attained
