Neuropeptides exhibit multiple functions as hormones and regulators. As such, many techniques are required to understand the contribution and functions of neuropeptides in health and disease processes. Research in the neuropeptide field is aimed toward a better understanding of the physiology of the human body and toward the development of better diagnostics and therapeutics. This book will familiarize the audience with forefront techniques in the field.
