This book provides a comprehensive review of what receptors do in the nervous system, how they do it, the mechanisms by which receptor function is regulated, and the consequences of normal and abnormal receptor function. It contains a series of interrelated chapters describing key neurotransmitter receptors, protein kinases, and protein phosphatases, and details their expression and composition in the development of the central nervous system (CNS).
