Molecular biology techniques have led to increased understanding of ion channel structure which has opened the way for the development of new drugs targeted at specific types of ion channels. This book aims to provide a fully comprehensive, single-volume overview of the effects of differentdrugs and toxins on ionic channels, with every chapter providing a detailed description of the pharmacology of each particular ion channel. It will be an essential reference tool for all researchers in this topical and fast-moving subject area.
Bernat Soria and Valentin Cena are both at Institute of Bioengineering and Institute of Neurosciences, Universidad Miguel Hernandez, Alicante, Spain.
