“Nitric Oxide and Free Radicals in Peripheral Neurotransmission” is a welcome addition to the literature and describes current research into the role of nitric oxide in the peripheral nervous system and its associated organs. Topics covered range from general consideration of nitrergic transmission, in its broadest sense, to elaboration of our current understanding of the role of nitric oxide in transmission in individual peripheral organs, including its role as a backup, or alternate as well as chief transmitter. The influence of nitric oxide and related compounds on the more conventional modes of autonomic transmission are also considered. Aimed at students and researchers in the areas of neuroscience and physiology, “Nitric Oxide and Free Radicals in Peripheral Neurotransmission” also covers the emerging role of abnormal nitric oxide function in disease states and, where appropriate, as potential avenues of therapy.
