This comprehensive survey of neuropsychopharmacology is unique in its breadth of coverage, from molecular to behavioural pharmacology, and from basic animal studies of drug action to clinical applications. Lavish illustrations and concise chapter summaries reinforce key concepts, while extensive references point the way to further study. The book is intended for advanced undergraduate, graduate and medical students, and neuroscientists seeking current information on psychoactive drug. The first section serves as an introduction to, and general reference for, pharmacology and the basic neurosciences. Subsequent sections address the major neurotransmitter systems, various psychoactive drug classes and psychological and neurological disorders.
