Peripheral Dopaminergic Receptors contains the proceedings of the Satellite Symposium of the 7th International Congress of Pharmacology held in Strasbourg, France, on July 24-25, 1978. The papers explore advances that have been made in understanding peripheral dopaminergic receptors and cover topics organized around five themes: dopamine measurement; structure-activity relationships; peripheral actions of dopamine; effects of dopamine on the kidney; and the physiological role of dopamine in the autonomic nervous system. This volume is comprised of 36 chapters and opens with a discussion on the dopamine vascular receptor, along with its agonists and antagonists. The reader is then introduced to the physiological and clinical implications of free and conjugated dopamine; dopamine-sensitive adenylate cyclase in the renal artery of dogs; dopamine-induced relaxation of isolated dog arteries; and concentration and function of dopamine in normal and diseased blood vessels. The following chapters explore the possible involvement of endogenous substances in the cardiovascular actions of dopamine; the role of dopamine receptors as mediators of the neurogenic vasodilatation by dopaminergic agents; and implications of renal and adrenal dopamine for the role of conjugated dopamine. Studies on the peripheral cardiovascular activity of dopamine in the rat are also presented. This book will be of interest to practitioners in biosciences, pharmacology, physiology, and medicine.

Persuasion: Theory and Research, Third Edition is a comprehensive overview of social-scientific theory and research on persuasion. Written in a clear and accessible style that assumes no special technical background in research methods, the Third Edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect developments in persuasion studies. New discussions of subjects such as reactance and the use of narratives as vehicles for persuasion, revised treatments of the theories of reasoned action and planned behavior, and two new chapters on social judgment theory and stage models provide your students with the most current work on persuasion in a clear, straightforward manner. In this edition, author Daniel J. O'Keefe has given special attention to the importance of adapting (tailoring) messages to audiences to maximize persuasiveness. Each chapter has a set of review questions to guide students through the chapter’s material and quickly master the concepts being introduced.
