Endorphins, Opiates and Behavioural Processes

Overview

The initial discoveries over a decade ago of the opiate receptor and several natural, opioid ligands heralded an explosion of research into the anatomy, pharmacology and biochemistry of the endogenous opioid systems.

Overview

The initial discoveries over a decade ago of the opiate receptor and several natural, opioid ligands heralded an explosion of research into the anatomy, pharmacology and biochemistry of the endogenous opioid systems. This contributed volume brings together a series of authoritative chapters that critically examine major areas of contemporary behavioral research on opiates and the endogenous opioid systems. Discusses the three opioid peptide families, ligand-receptor selectivity, classic effects of opiates and related substances, and endogenous opioids in the regulation of food intake and the controls of drinking and water balance. Behavioral processes with which opioid mechanisms have been associated are also examined including social attachment and social interaction, sexual behavior, exploration and activity, and learning and memory.
