The explosion of research activity in the field of neuropeptides has led to the idenfication of numerous naturally occurring endogenous peptides which act as neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, or trophic factors, to mediate nervous system functions. Increasing numbers of non-peptide ligands of neuropeptide receptors have been developed, which act as agonists or antagonists in peptidergic systems. The scope of this book includes gene regulation of peptide expression, peptide receptor subtypes, transgenic and knockout mice with mutations in genes for neuropeptides and peptide receptors, neuroanatomy, physiology, behaviour, neurotrophic factors, preclinical drug evaluation, clinical studies, and clinical trials.A possible neural wiring diagram to induce gastric relaxation is shown in figure 1. ... Two types of parasympathetic (vagal) preganglionic neurons, whose cell bodies are situated in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV), participate ... an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor (Sakurai et al., 1998; de Leccea et al., 1998).
