Interest in the functional roles of astrocytes in the nervous system has grown significantly as it is recognized that these cells not only have their own pharmacology but also release neuro- and vaso-active factors. This book relates astrocyte pharmacology to cell function for the first time, making it an attractive text across the neuroscience community.

* Discusses the pharmacological regulation of specific astrocyte functions
* Covers functional interactions between these and adjacent CNS cell types
* Examines regional heterogeneity of astrocytes with respect to receptor expression
* Compares in vitro and in vivo approaches
