The Mechanism of Nervous Action. Book Description: A series of experiments on the mechanism of sense organs and motor nerve cells, for which the author was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine. eISBN:   Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that enable communication within the nervous system and between the nervous system and the rest of the body. They relay information between individual neurons, and ultimately regulate a wide range of bodily functions. There are various classes of neurotransmitters, with different functions and mechanisms of action/5. Integrative Action of the Autonomic Nervous System. Integrative Action of the Autonomic Nervous System In this chapter I will discuss some mechanisms by which centrally generated messages are transmitted from postganglionic neurons to the target cells (effectors).

Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology, Fourth Edition enables rapid review and assimilation of large amounts of complex information about the essentials of medical pharmacology. Clear, sequential pictures of mechanisms of action actually show students how drugs work, instead of just telling them. As in previous editions, the book features an outline format, over full-color 4/5(4). Basic Pharmacology, Third Edition aims to present accounts of drug actions and their mechanisms in a compact, inexpensive, and updated form, and explain the basis of the therapeutic exploitation of drugs. This book is divided into sections that follow a particular theme and is introduced by the relevant pharmacological general principles. Hexamethonium, a ganglionic blocker, inhibits the action of levamisole. Monepantel, the only commercially available amino-acetonitrile derivative, is a direct agonist of the mptl-1 channel, which is a homomeric channel belonging to the DEG-3 family of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Magnesium plays an important role in the prevention of central sensitization and in the attenuation of established pain hypersensitivity, and its main mode of action appears to involve its voltage-gated antagonist action at N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Given the putative function of the NM .

Mechanism of Action. Adenosine is a purine nucleoside base, most commonly recognized with the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, and is used thoroughly throughout the entire body in general metabolism. Adenosine’s use as a pharmacological drug works through receptors called purinergic adenosine receptors found throughout the body. The mechanism of action of tricyclic depressants is not conclusively known, and not one of the proposed hypotheses is currently capable of fully explaining their antidepressant effect. A large number of physiologically active substances exhibit stimulatory action on the central nervous system (CNS). this book fills the gap that exists.   The mechanisms of the action of sex steroid hormones on the nervous system are related to both classical, intracellularly mediated effects and non-classical membrane effects due to binding to membrane receptors. Some steroids are capable of inducing rapid neurotransmitter-like effects, similar to those of dopamine or glutamate that alter the activity of neuronal systems via . An Introduction to the Study of the Nervous System covers topics about the minute structure and functions of the nervous system. The book discusses the minute and gross anatomy of the various parts of the nervous system; the degenerative and regenerative changes following section of the nerves; and the descending and ascending tracts of the spinal cord.
