Satiation: From Gut to Brain

Satiation: From Gut to Brain Lowest new price: $32.95
Lowest used price: $35.68
List price: $94.00
Brand: Gerard P Smith

This volume presents the first detailed account of the neurobiological mechanisms of satiation. The ten chapters of the book detail the neural, endocrine, and cellular underpinnings of the process. Authors expert in different aspects of satiation have compiled a critical overview of recent advances and current problems in this field. Recent scientific evidence has revealed that food stimuli activate satiation before the actual absorption of digested food--a significant change to the traditional perspective that satiation depends on the post-absorptive repletion of metabolic fuels. The inclusion of a chapter on the satiation of alcohol is unique in a book on food intake, and shows the convergence of ideas on satiation in these two areas. Comprehensive in scope and accessible to a wide array of advanced students and professionals, Satiation: From Gut to Brain is an authoritative and up-to-date review of every aspect of this important physiological process. Although intended primarily for neuroscientists, nutritionists, and psychobiologists, the book will also be useful for physiologists, pharmacologists, and psychologists concerned with eating and its disorders.

Features:

  • Satiation From Gut to Brain

Stress and Addiction: Biological and Psychological Mechanisms

Stress and Addiction: Biological and Psychological Mechanisms Lowest new price: $30.68
Lowest used price: $57.50
List price: $115.00
Brand: Mustafa al Absi

Stress is one of the most commonly reported precipitants of drug use and is considered the number one cause of relapse to drug abuse. For the past several decades, there have been a number of significant advances in research focusing on the neurobiological and psychosocial aspects of stress and addiction; along with this growth came the recognition of the importance of understanding the interaction of biological and psychosocial factors that influence risk for initiation and maintenance of addictive behaviors. Recent research has started to specifically focus on understanding the nature of how stress contributes to addiction - this research has influenced the way we think about addiction and its etiological factors and has produced exciting possibilities for developing effective intervention strategies; to date there has been no available book to integrate this literature. This highly focused work integrates and consolidates available knowledge to provide a resource for researchers and practitioners and for trainees in multiple fields. Stress and Addiction will help neuroscientists, social scientists, and mental health providers in addressing the role of stress in addictive behaviors; the volume is also useful as a reference book for those conducting research in this field.

  • Integrates theoretical and practical issues related to stress and addiction
  • Includes case studies illustrating where an emotional state and addictive behavior represent a prominent feature of the clinical presentation
  • Cross-disciplinary coverage with contributions by by scientists and practitioners from multiple fields, including psychology, neuroscience, neurobiology, and medicine

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolism

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolism Lowest new price: $76.11
Lowest used price: $14.18
List price: $231.00

Recent years have seen a greater industrial emphasis in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the pharmaceutical and chemical sciences. However, textbooks have been slow to adapt, leaving the field without a text/reference that is both instructional and practical in the industrial setting – until now.

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolismis a stimulating new text that examines the techniques, methodology, and theory of bioanalysis, pharmacokinetics, and metabolism from the perspective of scientists with extensive professional experience in drug discovery and development. These three areas of research help drug developers to optimize the active component within potential drugs thereby increasing their effectiveness, and to provide safety and efficacy information required by regulators when granting a drug license. Professionals with extensive experience in drug discovery and development as well as specialized knowledge of the individual topics contributed to each chapter to create a current and well-credentialed text. It covers topics such as high performance liquid chromatography, protein binding, pharmacokinetics and drug–drug interactions. The unique industrial perspective helps to reinforce theory and develop valuable analytical and interpreting skills.

This text is an invaluable guide to students in courses such as pharmaceutical science, pharmacology, chemistry, physiology and toxicology, as well as professionals in the biotechnology industry.

Author: Committee on Military Nutrition Research

This report from the Committee on Military Nutrition Research reviews the history of caffeine usage, the metabolism of caffeine, and its physiological effects. The effects of caffeine on physical performance, cognitive function and alertness, and alleviation of sleep deprivation impairments are discussed in light of recent scientific literature. The impact of caffeine consumption on various aspects of health, including cardiovascular disease, reproduction, bone mineral density, and fluid homeostasis are reviewed. The behavioral effects of caffeine are also discussed, including the effect of caffeine on reaction to stress, withdrawal effects, and detrimental effects of high intakes. The amounts of caffeine found to enhance vigilance and reaction time consistently are reviewed and recommendations are made with respect to amounts of caffeine appropriate for maintaining alertness of military personnel during field operations. Recommendations are also provided on the need for appropriate labeling of caffeine-containing supplements, and education of military personnel on the use of these supplements. A brief review of some alternatives to caffeine is also provided.
