Summary Advances in Vagal Afferent Neurobiology takes a comprehensive approach in which all aspects of the vagal afferent system are considered from the terminals in the visceral tissues to the neural pathways within the central nervous system. Within this contextual framework, the book reviews the development, neurochemistry, anatomy, biophysics, pharmacology, and physiology of the vagal afferent nerves. The authors present experimental techniques used to investigate the development, morphology, electrophysiology, and reflex function of the vagal afferent nerves. The book includes state-of-the-art re
