Introduction to Neuropsychopharmacology expands on the molecular and cellular foundations of the classic Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology, Eighth Edition (Cooper, Bloom, and Roth) by now including the behavioral methods used to study psychoactive drugs in experimental animals and inhumans. Authored by four founders of modern neuroscience, this concise and comprehensive text covers the current series of medications used to treat diseases of the brain and nervous system - both psychiatric and neurologic - as well as legal and illegal recreational drugs and the neuroscientificinformation that explains how these medications act on the brain from the molecular to the clinical level. The text ranges from drugs that affect the mood and behavior to hypnotics, narcotics, anticonvulsants, and analgesics.
Floyd C. Bloom is Director of the Division of Preclinical Neuroscience at Scripps Clinical Research Institute. Robert H. Roth is Professor of Pharmacology and Psychiatry, School of Medicine at Yale University.
