Abstract

This resource thoroughly examines the anesthetic modulation of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems and will help redefine anesthesiology as a fundamentally neuroscientific field. It is organized by sections, with each focusing on a different part of the nervous system. State-of-the-art chapters are written by field leaders in anesthesiology and neuroscience.
