Neuropeptide Y NPY is a ubiquitous and important messenger in the nervous system, with a wide range of physiological roles. It is involved in the body energy balance and is one of the most potent stimuli of food intake known. NPY also acts to regulate central and peripheral autonomic functions.This book, written by academic and industrial experts in the field, links the most recent basic experimental knowledge about NPY and its receptors with areas of clinical importance.This book will be of interest to those working in all areas of research affected by NPY, such as food intake and energy homeostasis, cardiovascular regulation and G-protein-coupled receptors, as well as those interested in the development of drugs as NPY targets.Key Features* The hypothalamic role of NPY and its relationship with eating disorders and diabetes* The sympathetic nervous system role of NPY and its involvement in cardiovascular disorders* Characterization of NPY receptor types and their brain distribution, molecular biology and pharmacology* Development of peptide and non-peptide receptor antagonists

This graduate-level text is intended for initial courses in algebra that begin with first principles but proceed at a faster pace than undergraduate-level courses. It employs presentations and proofs that are accessible to students, and it provides numerous concrete examples.
Exercises appear throughout the text, clarifying concepts as they arise; additional exercises, varying widely in difficulty, are included at the ends of the chapters. Subjects include groups, rings, fields and Galois theory, modules, and structure of rings and algebras. Further topics encompass infinite Abelian groups, transcendental field extensions, representations and characters of finite groups, Galois groups, and additional areas.
Based on many years of classroom experience, this self-contained treatment breathes new life into abstract concepts.
