Nitric Oxide in the Nervous System (Neuroscience by Stephen R. Vincent

By Stephen R. Vincent

The gasoline nitric oxide (NO) has burst upon neuroscience only in the near past, and but it has permeated into virtually each street of present study. the original homes of this novel messenger have revolutionized our approach ofthinking approximately neurotransmission. those distinctive houses have additionally lead neuroscientists to invoke NO to give an explanation for many formerly unexplained phenomena in neurobiology. thankfully, the advance of diverse pharmacological brokers is now permitting thesehypotheses to be tested.
This quantity will supply a synopsis of what's referred to now approximately NO. How and the place NO is produced, the way it acts on the molecular point to turn on the synthesis of cGMP, and the potential objectives of cGMP within the frightened method are reviewed. the jobs of theNO/cGMP sign transduction pathway within the vital and peripheral anxious platforms, in glial cells, and in neuropathology are then explored. jointly, those stories will bring about additional paintings explaining the various capabilities of NO.

Key Features
* Describes how and why NO is produced within the anxious system
* Examines all that's identified of NOs function as a neurotransmitter
* Explores mobile activities and physiological roles within the mind and peripheral fearful system
Covers NOs molecular synthesis to its function in neuropathology
