Full Description


In recent years there has been an enormous growth of interest in the functional significance of endogenous opioid peptides and their relation to opiate drugs. This volume deals with important new clinical and experimental findings which emphasize the behavioural significance of these neuropeptides. Each review adopts a critical approach to the literature and draws specific attention to the clinical implications and relevance of basic research findings.
