Ábrahám Ambrus: Microscopic innervation of the heart and blood vessels in vertebrates including man (Budapest, 1969)

A.ÁBRAHÁM MICROSCOPIC INNERVATION OP THE HEART AND BLOOD VESSELS IN VERTEBRATES INCLUDING MAN In the first part of the monograph the author discusses the structure and the microscopic innervation of the different layers of the heart wall in fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and man. The heart receptors of the dog, fox, cat, horse, pig, sheep and cattle are treated in detail. The second part deals with the innervation of arte­ries, veins and capillaries. After the description of the baroreceptors of the aortic arch, carotid sinus, carot­id arteries and of the pulmonary artery, the correlation between hypertension and baroreceptors, as well as the chemoreceptors of birds, mammals and man are discussed. Separate chapters are devoted to the innervation of the coronary, renal and cerebral arteries and veins. The work is based on the author’s own investigations; the drawings and photographs are original. AKADÉMIAI KIADÓ PUBLISHING HOUSE OF THE HUN­GARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES BUDAPEST
