Neural Mechanisms of Cardiovascular Regulation responds to current questions about how neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems regulate the cardiovascular system. It includes a series of thoughtful reviews that are intended to provoke and illuminate the reader, with the intention of revealing some of the ideas that current practitioners in the field of cardiovascular research are using to generate their current studies.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael C Cunningham, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a collection of 18 reviews, each of which is written by a different author covering detailed aspects of how central and peripheral neurons regulate the cardiovascular system.
Purpose: The book is written in a style to illuminate and provoke ideas in the area of cardiovascular regulation and promote discussion and experimentation in this essential area of research. This is an excellent resource in this regard, especially considering the small number of books devoted to the eclectic subject matter. It also provides a valuable source of references.
Audience: The intended audience is intentionally limited to researchers and academics in this complex area of research. The authors of their respective chapters are experts in the field.
Features: The book covers a myriad of diverse and complex subjects from the simple baroreceptor reflex to the electrical properties of neurotransmitters. The literature is well reviewed in each chapter with numerous references that support much of the basic science that encompasses the topic. The chapter on salt-sensitive hypertension is particularly intriguing. The role of the anterior hypothalamus and norepinephrine stores effect on hypertension is well explained and supported. Points that could be confusing are illustrated with graphs, figures, and photos that are well labeled and easily interpreted. If there is one flaw, the photos could be of better quality.
Assessment: This book is one of a kind and its authors should be congratulated on producing a text that was truly needed to not only illuminate and provoke ideas, but also to provide an indispensable resource of references for their colleagues.
