This volume brings together the Perspectives and Topical Reviews published during 1999 in The Journal of Physiology. It also includes the in-depth and authoritative Physiological Society Annual Review Prize Lecture from 1999, with the intention of making their content as accessible as possible to both students and researchers in physiology. The Journal of Physiology publishes original research papers that illustrate new physiological principles and mechanisms, emphasizing human and mammalian physiology. It is among the most rapidly published journals in its field, and has one of the highest citation indexes in physiology.
