About This Book

Stress, Neuropeptides, and Systemic Disease traces the development of the neuropeptide hypothesis from its anatomical substrate to its functional correlates in animal and pre-clinical human models of stress-induced disease.The book contains articles that discuss the different aspects and findings on the study of neuropeptides such as the histochemical localization of peptide-containing cells and peptidergic receptors; the current concepts in hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis regulation; neuropeptides involved in stress and their distribution in the mammalian central nervous system; and neuropeptide-mediated regulation of the neuroendocrine and autonomic responses to stress. The methods of measuring neuropeptides and their metabolism; stress responses and the pathogenesis of arthritis; brain peptides and gastrointestinal transit; and diminished opioid inhibition of blood pressure and pituitary function in hypertension development are presented as well.Physicians, neurobiologists, pharmacologists, and biological scientists will find the book very interesting.
