Book Description

Series: Frontiers of Oral Physiology
Saliva is essential for oral health and influences all events in the mouth. In 1850, Ludwig discovered that automatic nerve impulses evoke salivary secretion and all work since has shown that the nerves normally control the flow and protein output of saliva. This publication, written by international experts, is devoted to the neuroglandular mechanisms of this control. The chapters contained deal with: the intimate details of the nerves and their different transmitters in the glands; central connections of the glandular nerves; receptors in the glands; nerve-induced glandular secretion of proteins; autonomic transmitters on salivary cells; and the roles of non-conventional transmitters in the glands.
