This innovative book presents a molecular and cellular approach to drugs that affect the central nervous system, brain function, and disease states within the nervous system. Filled with superb illustrations, it integrates molecular, cellular, and physiological concepts with pharmacology, and explores the relevance of this model to disese and therapeutics

"...a book so generous with its gifts." "The overall intelligence of the book, its complete command of contemporary neuroscience and ability to link this knowledge with the clinical action of the drugs make it a required reading for anyone who wants to understand neuropharmacology and the neuroscience of the normal and diseased brain. The book will not only inform the students, but will encourage the union of clinical understanding and basic biology, which its distinguished authors so ably represent." ( Nature Neuroscience 2001-08-01)From the Publisher:
Up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the relationship of brain function and neuroactive chemicals brought about by molecular and cell biology. This innovative and cutting-edge book presents a molecular and cellular approach to drugs that affect the central nervous system, brain function, and disease states within the nervous system. Written by three eminent academicians and clinicians in the field of psychiatry, this text integrates molecular, cellular and physiological concepts with pharmacology and explores the relevance of this model to disease and therapeutics. Topics such as basic principles of neuropharmacology, signal transduction pathways in the brain, neural substrates of drug action (catecholamines, serotonin, histamine, and acetylocholine), and neuropharmacology of specific neural functions and their disorders are discussed.
