Hardbound. In recent years a number of new antidepressants have been introduced and many more are currently in various phases of clinical development. Most of these work in fundamentally different ways from the traditional tricyclic antidepressants. This volume reviews current knowledge concerning this new class of drug, with particular emphasis on the role of transmitters and receptor systems in both basic and clinical research.

Our understanding of the functioning of the brain has grown rapidly over the last decade or two. So has our recognition of the possible role of brain dysfunction in diseases considered earlier to be of peripheral or somatic origin. This culminates naturally in a focus on the nature of the influence of the brain on other systems such as the autonomic, neuroendocrine and immune systems. And we must come full circle and question the nature of the influence of these systems on the function of the brain. Thus, we gain a picture of a complex regulatory interaction, fine tuned in normal circumstances to provide each system with necessary information about the status of the other systems and the basis to respond appropriately to changes in each other. This volume provides the proceedings of the first of a series of international symposia intended to review the state-of-the-art understanding and frontier exploration of the above described interregulatory phenomena, with some emphasis on the relevance of this information to the etiology and treatment of disease. The purpose of this first symposium was to lay the groundwork for this continuing endeavor. To accomplish such a goal required bringing together diverse multidisciplinary professionals - eg neurobiologists, immunol ogists, psychiatrists, cardiologists and students amongst others.

Behavioural models in psychopharmacology are used for different purposes. The main concern of industrial psychopharmacologists is specifically to develop new and improved drugs for the treatment of mental disorders, while basic scientists use animal models to investigate the underlying nature of such conditions. The important distinction between these different perspectives is made explicit for the first time in this book. By considering such conditions as anxiety, depression, mania and schizophrenia, feeding disorders, dementia, and drug dependence, this book provides a comprehensive and critical review of the adequacy of the behavioural procedures used by psychopharmacologists to model psychiatric disorders. Graduate students and research workers in pscyhopharmacology, from both academic and industrial spheres, as well as clinicians, will find this book of considerable interest.

To date, no other book has truly integrated the interpersonal, cognitive, and social perspectives on depression research. This book provides that integration and will hopefully stimulate it further. This book also showcases a wide variety of research.

1.1 Outline of the Study In this study the influence of psychotropic drugs on anterior pituitary hormone (APR) secretion was investigated in healthy subjects and in depressed patients. The basis for this study is formed by pharmacological investigations which indicate that the therapeutic effect of psychotropic drugs can be attributed to their functional influence on central nervous aminergic impulse transmission (stimuli) as well as by endocrinological investigations which show that central nervous aminergic neurons influence APR secretion in man. The purpose was to frod out if psychotropic drugs with differing pharmacological actions also influence APR secretion differently, even though the complex processes of central nervous stimuli transmission, the effect of psychotropic drugs on these processes, as well as the action of aminergic neuronal systems on APR secretion are not completely understood. Furthermore, it was investigated if it is possible to reach conclusions on the effects of drugs on central nervous aminergic neurons based upon APR secretion data. Specifically, the effects of various antidepressants, neuroleptics, and benzodiazepine-type tranquilizers on the secretion of growth hormone (GR), prolactin (PRL), adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTR), and cortisol were investigated in healthy male subjects. The first part of this study presents in detail the results of these experiments and also incorporates the results of other investigators. It is endeavored to answer the question whether and to what extent the different psychotropic drugs influence APR secretion and whether the APR secretion profiles of the different psychotropic drugs can serve as a possible pharmacoendocrinological model in humans.

The group of European Medical Research Councils (EMRC) was formed in 1971 and became a Standing Committee of the European Science Foundation (ESF) in 1975. EMRC is an association of medical research councils or equivalent organizations in Western Europe. The National Institutes of Health, the Israel Academy of Sciences and the European Office of WHO are associated with EMRC and take an active part in EMRC activities. The main aims of EMRC are to exchange information on the research policies pursued by its member organizations and to initiate and stimulate international cooperation in biomedical research. Since biomedical research is highly international in itself, EMRC concentrates its activities on furthering international collaboration in those fields where it can play a significant role as a complement to existing channels. Mental illness research has been judged by EMRC to fulfill these criteria. After a survey of the activities of the member organizations in mental illness research, EMRC decided in 1978 to set up a study group to look for areas within this field to which EMRC could contribute. As a result of the work of the study group, four work shops have been arranged to define present knowledge in some specific areas and to delineate research needs. The present volume contains the proceedings of the fourth workshop, held in 1985 and dealing with the course and outcome of depressive illness. EMRC hopes that this volume will stimulate intensified research and research cooperation on mental illnesses.

This volume is the third in a series on depressive illness. The first volume, entitled Phenomenology of Depressive Illness, is devoted to a de scription of depressive illness from a variety of perspectives that include those of the patient, the clinician, and the psychiatric researcher. It de scribes the major subtypes of depressive illness and places them in the context of the life cycle. The second volume in this series is entitled Models of Depres sive Disorders: Psychological, Biological, and Genetic Perspectives. This volume describes several major models of depressive disorders, in cluding genetic, cognitive, interpersonal, intrapsychic, and neurobio logical models. The third and fourth volumes deal with the biology of affective disorders in detail. These volumes are distinguished by a triaxial ap proach. In Volume III the biology of affective disorders is described from the perspective of individual transmitter systems and neurophysi ologic and biologic processes. In Volume IV the biology of depression is addressed from the vantage point of symptom components of de pression, and similarities and differences in the biology of depression are described compared to other psychiatric disorders with clinically overlapping features such as anxiety disorders or eating disorders. The effects on biology of comorbid conditions such as anxiety, personal ity disorders, alcoholism, and eating disorders are reviewed. These ap proaches incorporate issues of state versus trait.
