Catecholamines are crucial pathophysiologic actors in such neuropsychiatric and cardiovascular disease processes as movement disorders, mood and thought disturbances, hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, and stroke. This important model system therefore bridges clinical medicine to basic cardiovascular and neurobiological research. Within the basic sciences, chromaffin cell biology benefits from advances in neurobiology, pharmacology, endocrinology, and cardiovascular biology. This volume emphasizes the role of new technologies in chromaffin cell biology, especially emerging developments in bioinformatics for the practicing chromaffin cell biologist.
