The Central neural organization of cardiovascular control( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satellite Symposium of the 18th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, "Function of the Ventrolateral Medulla in the Control of the Circulation", held in London, Ontario, Canada, Nov. 11-13, 1988, focused on the newest research developments into the central neural organisation of cardiovascular control. The central nervous system is vital in the controlling of arterial pressure via the regulation of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous discharge to blood vessels and the heart. The central nervous system also controls the release of hormones that regulate the circulation and couple the circulatory system to different behaviours. This volume concentrates on the most recent experimental advances in the neurosciences. Current research disproves the concept of a vasomotor medullary centre, suggesting instead that the control of sympathetic preganglionic activity occurs via neural pathways. The pathways of greatest significance are proposed to originate from neurons located on, or close to, the ventral surface of the medulla oblongata. The proceedings of this symposium represent an important breakthrough in neuroscientific research. An indispensable resource book

The physiological control of mammalian vocalization by John D Newman( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the majority of biologists, the physiological control of mammalian vocalizations is only a small part of the large field of motor physiology. It is indeed a very specialized part, and the number of scientists dealing with it is relatively small. Still, it is an autonomous subject embracing more than the motor control of the body and is, therefore, by far more complex. Anatomically, essential cerebral structures involved in the control of gross and fine movements of the mammalian body seem to participate in the control of the voice as well. The central control system, however, as well as the larynx (the primary effector organ), possess features not found in the remaining motor system. An example is the perfect synergism of the many muscles which control the m. vocaZis, not to speak of the speed of successions in which this occurs. Furthermore, this muscle, similar to the facial muscles, is segmentally adjustable independently of the joints. The most remarkable feature of the central control area, however, seems to be the effector organ's manifold direct and indirect dependence on the limbic system of the brain. This makes the voice--like no other motor organ (with the partial exception of the facial musculature)--the chief organ for the expression of emotion and the indicator of behavioral states. Except in man, the voice is in­ dependent of neocortical control. Animal vocalizations are species­ typical and genetically programmed. Ethologically, they belong to the behavioral class of fixed action patterns
Opioids, bulimia, and alcohol abuse & alcoholism by Larry D Reid( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is the written form of the proceedings of a satellite symposium associated with the 1988-meeting of the Society for Neu roscience. The symposium was held 12 November 1988 in the auditor ium of the Addictions Research Foundation, Toronto, Canada. The ac tual writing took place across the months following the symposium. The symposium was sponsored by the Addictions Research Foundation, Toronto, Canada, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, U.S.A., and Rensselaer, Troy, NY, U.S.A. Du Pont Pharmaceuticals provided some financial assistance. Contributors also received specific support for their own projects and these are ac knowledged at the end of each chapter. The accomplishment of science involves the efforts of many persons and their organizations. That is surely manifest in the work presented here. Modern science is very expensive and, consequently, financial resouces must be developed and distributed wisely. Those who facilitate this basic function have the appreciation of those of us who need the resources to do our work. There are a large number of individuals whose names will not appear in these pages that make sub stantial contributions. We are thankful for their daily contributions. The people who provide the money, those who distribute it, and those who help us do our work have the legitimate expectation that the sci entists who use the resources will use it prudently. We hope that your expectations are fulfilled, and sincerely appreciate your efforts
Neural transplantation and regeneration by Gopal D Das( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four years ago the first international symposium dealing with neural transplan­ tation was organized as a satellite conference to the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Los Angeles, California. The expanded proceed­ ings of that symposium were published by Springer-Verlag in 1983 in a volume entitled Neural Tissue Transplantation Research. We were sufficiently pleased with the results of that effort to organize a second satellite international sympo­ sium on Neural Transplantation and Regeneration in conjunction with the 13th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Boston in the fall of 1983. Paralleling the growing body of research dealing with various aspects of neural transplantation, the scope of this second symposium was broadened to include not only transplantation but also regeneration. Additionally, topics of clinical interest were addressed as well as issues of basic research. The promise apparent in that first conference is still seen in the second as more and more investigators apply their talents in an attempt to understand this infant field of research. The present volume represents an expanded version of the material presented at the second symposium. We wish to thank all of the contributors to the conference and to this volume for their insight and their assistance

Nitric oxide in brain development, plasticity, and disease( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nitric oxide, "Molecule of the Year" in 1995, continues to be one of the most widely studied molecules in brain research. This excellent volume elucidates the implications of this gas in a variety of brain processes. The volume is divided into five sections, describing: the mechanisms underlying the release and action of Nitric Oxide in the CNS, and the distribution of Nitric Oxide in the brain using various techniques; how Nitric Oxide interacts with and regulates the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor; the role of Nitric Oxide in pathway refinement and synapse stabilization in the developing CNS; the role of Nitric Oxide in adult brain plasticity including long-term potentiation and depression; and the role of Nitric Oxide in brain injury such as occurs during ischemia and other events produced by glutamate neurotoxicity, and in neuroprotective mechanisms that promote neuron survival. Nitric Oxide in Brain Development, Plasticity, and Disease is the first Progress in Brain Research volume to be published in abstracted form on the World Wide Web. It includes title pages, abstracts, selected figures, and complete references. It also includes a digital brain atlas for readers to view a mouse brain in a three-dimensional full-color rendition, and much more

Cytokines & the brain : a satellite symposium to the 27th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience by S. M McCann( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue details the most recent developments from research on the roles of CNS cytokines, related soluble mediators and their antagonists. Originating from the first international meeting to focus exclusively on immune-to-brain signaling, the main topics covered include CNS actions of cytokines, cytokines and the neuropathology of stroke, cytokines and HIV neuropathology and behavioral actions of cytokines. This publication is highly recommended to all neuroimmunomodulation researchers as it provides a comprehensive summary of the latest advances in this exciting field. These excellent state-of-the-art treatise are appropriate for all neuroscientists, immunologists and behaviorists
