Monoaminergic Modulation of Cortical Excitability

Editors: Tseng, Kuei-Yuan, Atzori, Marco (Eds.)

  • Reviews cellular and synaptic mechanisms by which dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin receptors regulate cortical excitability and plasticity during critical periods of postnatal development
  • Provides new insight into the effect of disruption of these interactions on memory formation and information processing in the cortex
  • Usable as a supplementary text for courses in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, cellular and molecular pharmacology, pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders, and experimental psychology

About this book

Monoaminergic Modulation of Cortical Excitability serves as an integrative and comprehensive comparison of the diverse and complex modulatory action of dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin receptors in the cortex. The volume is organized into several sections offering a broad spectrum of opinions on how the monoamine systems affect cortical function from a cellular/sub-cellular level to a system level. The complexity of these interactions are discussed in light of recent data showing how disruption of these systems dramatically affects the memory formation and information processing in the cortex.
