This book consists of a comprehensive review of autonomic control of the heart and coronary blood vessels, written by leaders in the field. It tackles the subject at all levels of control, from neurotransmitters, receptors and signal transduction mechanisms, to the responses of the conducting tissue, cardiac and vascular smooth muscle. This volume also shows how the local autonomic factors contribute to the regulation of coronary blood flow and it highlights the role of the autonomic nervous system in cardiovascular diseases. Nervous Control of the Heart will, therefore, be of interest to the clinician as well as the research scientist.

Autonomic control of cardiac conduction and automaticity, reflex control of the circulation in heart failure, etc.
