Chapters by distinguished international basic and clinical scientists in the field of stress and neurotransmitters offer new insights into stress, stress-related disorders, and their future stressor-specific treatment. This volume encompasses a number of themes in several sections: functional neuroanatomy of stress response; brain monoamines and neuropeptides in stress;  molecular genetics of neurotransmitter enzymes in stress; molecular genetics of stress hormones; transcriptional regulation of heart function in stress; neuroendocrine regulations in stress and their molecular biological basis; stress hormone receptors; stress, adaptation, and metabolism; and clinical aspects of stress-induced changes in neurotransmitter and hormone systems.
