Overview

This book is unique in bringing together up-to-date accounts of the endothelial, neuronal and humoral factors influencing vascular smooth muscle tone, and in presenting integrated accounts of how such mechanisms operate in the control of the vasculature of the major organ systems. This approach will highlight the value of future research directed at the interface of molecular biology and in vivo integrative cardiovascular control.
