about

The Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors offers state-of-the-art summaries and reviews of virtually everything known today about metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), including their molecular biology, pharmacology, anatomical distribution, and physiological and pathological roles. Illuminating the overall role played by this crucial class of receptors in brain function, the book also pinpoints those areas in which there is the greatest continuing need for focused research. Because mGluRs have the potential for participating in virtually all known functions of the central nervous system (CNS), the opportunity now exists to develop pharmacological agents that can potentially alter many brain disease processes by selective interaction with precise CNS functions. With its critical and insightful reviews, The Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors will immediately become your essential key to the development of novel treatment strategies for the widest variety of neurological disorders.

Editorial Reviews

...gives a state-of-the-art in the field (and) points out the needs of future research.-Trends in Pharmacological Sciences ReviewThis book is an excellent review of the molecular biology, pharmacology, anatomical distribution, and physiological and pathological roles of metabotrophic glutamate receptors. It provides a substantial support for the knowledge of metabotrophic glutamate receptor role in brain function and pathology. The editors have done an excellent job in choosing the contributing authors; each one is a major figure in the specific area he or she is presenting...recommended...-Neurological Research...not only gives a state-of-the-art in the field but also points out the needs of future research thereby becomes of interest to scientists working both with metabotropic glutamate receptors and with receptors in general.-FEBS Letters
