JOURNAL OF THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM | ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV | Published : 1998
In this article we outline the highlights of this special issue of the journal containing a series of articles covering many aspects of current interest in the field of imidazoline receptor research. This volume is the result of an international symposium held in September 1997 in Melbourne as an official satellite of the inaugural meeting of the International Society of Autonomic Neurosciences held in Cairns, Australia. A wide range of topics relating to imidazoline receptors were canvassed, including endogenous and synthetic ligands, identification and localisation of binding sites, putative transduction mechanisms and experimental and clinical functional studies.
