The Biogenic Monoamines as Regulators of Early (Pre-Nervous) Embryogenesis: New Data
Several neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, catecholamines, indolylalkylamines and neuropeptides are multifunctional controlling substances. They are involved not only in synaptic transmission and other nervous events but also in various regulatory processes not directly linked to the nervous system. Neurobiologists are interested in these non-nervous neurotransmitter functions as well.
