Recent scientific progress in neurohypophysis, vasopressin and oxytocin has been truly novel and exciting. The Joint World Congress of Neurohypophysis and Vasopressin was established with the objective of bringing together all topics related to these fields. Scientists from 17 countries participated and this book presents their most recent findings. The subjects covered include the molecular analysis of anatomy and biochemistry of the neurohypophyseal system, the structure and function of neurohypophyseal hormone receptors, water channel and urine concentration mechanisms, receptor antagonists of neurohypophyseal hormones and the clinical aspects of these problems. This volume should give readers a clear understanding of the new aspects pertaining to neurohypophyseal hormone research and, it is hoped, will stimulate further scientific research by students and scientists involved in this field.
