Описание: The vomeronasal organ is an olfactory structure in the nose, originally described in 1813 by the Danish court veterinarian Ludwig Jacobson. After some 150
years interest in it was reawakened, following the discovery of its key role in social and sexual responses. The organ serves to alert the emotional brain to the presence of specific
semiochemicals or signal molecules, which identify sex or status.
Typically, such scents elicit responses at a non-conscious level - altering internal chemistry (hormones) in
reaction to odours from the social environment (pheromones). The importance of vomerolfaction has recently been confirmed by findings on the genetic basis of smell. This book surveys
the biology of the "Organ of Jacobson" from toads to tamarins.
It provides an analysis of the neural pathway which processes pheromonal information delivered by the
"second nose" to the brain. Vomeronasal olfaction is examined in its evolutionary perspective, from molecular capture of scents to the consequent changes in reproductive

Описание: The carotid body arterial chemoreceptors constitute unique sensory receptors capable of rapidly monitoring the levels of arterial blood oxygen and carbon
dioxide. Whenever necessary they initiate homeostatic reflexes aimed to correct the detected deviations. Chemoreceptor cells of the carotid body constitute ideal models to study the
entire processes of O2-sensing as well asCO2-sensing.
The present book represents an updated review of the physiology of the carotid body chemoreceptors. Most important,
the book provides the trends in the field as it contains results in the topics that are at the frontiers of future developments in O2-sensing in chemorecepto
cells. Additionally, it contains data form studies carried in other O2-sensing tissues including pulmonary vasculature and erythropoietin producing cells as well as on central CO2/pH
"Arterial Chemoreceptors" should be considered as a prime source of information and as a guideline to every researcher in the field of arterial
chemoreception in the years to come. It is also an important source of information for researchers and clinicians in the fields of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction and pulmonary
hypertension as well as for researchers in the field of erythropoietin and central chemoreceptors.
