Early chapters give a detailed account of the anatomy, bio physics, and physiology of synaptic transmission at periferal and cent ral synapses, focusing on presynaptic control of transmitter release. Later chapters explore the organization of neural pathways leading to the presynaptic inhibition of transmitter release in segmental reflex pathways. A final section provides several examples of the operation o f presynaptic control mechanisms in specific sensory and motor functio ns in mammals, including humans. Integrating synaptic transmission and the CNS functions at the systems level, this volume will be of partic ular interest to researchers studying both areas.
