Psychopharmacology by Ockert Meyer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Encompassing recent advances in molecular pharmacology and brain imaging, Drugs, The Brain and Behavior offers a unique breadth of coverage from historical accounts of drug use, through clinical and preclinical behavioural studies, to the latest research on drug effects in transgenic mouse models. The first section of the book provides extensive foundation material, including the basic principles of pharmacology, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy, synaptic transmission, and methods in psychopharmacology. The second describes the key features of major neurotransmitter systems, while the third and fourth sections discuss theories and mechanisms of drug addiction and psychopathology. The book is richly illustrated and 'Breakout boxes' ensure the student remains engaged throughout.
