Endocannabinoids : Molecular, Pharmacological, Behavioral and Clinical Features

The endocannabinoid system comprises at least two G-protein-coupled receptors (the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors) activated by marijuana’s psychoactive principle ^9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the endogenous ligands known as endocannabinoids. The apex of endocannabinoid research seems to have been reached with the clinical development, and also in some cases, the marketing, of synthetic or natural pharmaceuticals targeting this signalling system, which followed the understanding of the physiological and pathological role of endocannabinoids in several conditions, a role that was investigated first in rodent experimental models and then in humans.

Endocannabinoids: Molecular, Pharmacological, Behavioral and Clinical Features is a monograph that presents interesting manuscripts selected by the editor on the subject. Chapters in this book include original research or reviews which report the relevance of the endocannabinoid system by describing the results of experimental evidence about the neurobiological role of the endocannabinoid system. The main topics include, but are not limited to:

* The genetics of cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors and their tissue distribution, their splicing variants and polymorphisms, and the possible implications of all this in determining different behaviours as well as various pathological conditions and the addiction to substances of abuse.

* Pharmacological approaches describing the potential use in the central nervous system disorders of endocannabinoid-based drugs, such as cannabinoid receptor agonists and antagonists, inhibitors of endocannabinoid inactivation processes, and even plant cannabinoids other than THC and with a molecular mechanism of action.

* The role of the endocannabinoid system in several neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions, such as epilepsy.

The volume would be a great interest to neuropharmacologists, physiologists and biochemists who aim to learn about the endocannabinoid system in detail.

The Brainstem and Behavior

 Behavioral Sciences  Comments Off on The Brainstem and Behavior
Feb 202018
 

The monograph entitled The Brainstem and Behavior, edited by Robert Lalonde, reports on physiological functions undertaken by different parts of the brainstem. Pfaff, Bubnys, and Tabansky describe the role of the reticular formation on arousal, with information completed by Lemaire from a more clinical viewpoint. Berezovskii enumerates general control mechanisms underlying locomotion, while Lalonde focuses on coordinated movements and balance. Gonzalez handles brain regions affecting the specific movements of reaching and grasping, Coubard those affecting eye movements, and Strazielle those affecting orofacial movements. The influence of the brainstem on emotions is described in chapters headed by Serby, Derish, and Roane regarding visual, auditory, and somatosensory hallucinations, and in Almeida’s chapter regarding aggression. In the final part of the book, the influence of the brainstem on cognition is described in chapters headed by Williams regarding memory and Lalonde regarding executive functions. Thus, recent and basic information concerning the role of brainstem regions responsible for arousal, movements, emotions, and cognition is described from both clinical and experimental perspectives.
