Neurophysiology of Neuroendocrine Neurons provides researchers and students with not only an understanding of neuroendocrine cell electrophysiology, but also an appreciation of how this model system affords access to virtually all parts of the neuron for detailed study – something unique compared to most types of neuron in the brain. Chapters range from those describing the rich history and current state of in vivo recordings, highlighting the precise relationship between the patterns of action potential discharge in these neurons and hormone release, to in vitro approaches where neuroendocrine neurons can be precisely identified and their membrane properties, morphology, and synaptic responses, directly examined.
• Written by a team of internationally renowned researchers, each chapter presents a succinct summary of the very latest developments in the field
• Includes an evaluation of different experimental approaches, both in vivo and in vitro, and how the resulting data are interpreted
• Both print and enhanced e-book versions are available
• Illustrated in full colour throughout
This is the first volume in a new Series ‘Masterclass in Neuroendocrinology’ , a co- publication between Wiley and the INF (International Neuroendocrine Federation) that aims to illustrate highest standards and encourage the use of the latest technologies in basic and clinical research and hopes to provide inspiration for further exploration into the exciting field of neuroendocrinology.
