Summary:
"The importance of the regulation of salt is of clinical relevance given its relation to the "epidemic" of high blood pressure and that virtually all foods throughout the EU and USA will be mandated to reduce their salt content. This book covers virtually all aspects of the innate drives of thirst and salt, including transduction, sensory mechanism, afferent systems, organization, CNS integrative circuitry, and  Read more...

Abstract:

"The importance of the regulation of salt is of clinical relevance given its relation to the "epidemic" of high blood pressure and that virtually all foods throughout the EU and USA will be mandated to reduce their salt content. This book covers virtually all aspects of the innate drives of thirst and salt, including transduction, sensory mechanism, afferent systems, organization, CNS integrative circuitry, and efferent pathways and effectors systems. It also covers the addition aspects of salt appetites and the orexigenic aspects, as well as other emerging topics in this field"--Provided by publisher.
