It provides an indispensable, authoritative and up-to-date guide to major new scientific and clinical developments. Molecular biology and serotonin receptor subtypes are covered in depth. A great deal of the new pharmacology of these subtypes is reviewed and assessed by the innovating investigators. Considerable coverage is given to the structure and functions of central serotonergic pathways, and behavioural issues are strongly featured. Clinicians will be particularly interested in the chapters devoted to anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder and Tourettes syndrome. The volume closes with an important section devoted to pain and cardiovascular function.
