Abstract

Authored by four founders of modern neuroscience, this resource 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 neuroscientific information that explains how these medications act on the brain from the molecular to the clinical level. The coverage ranges from drugs that affect the mood and behavior to hypnotics, narcotics, anticonvulsants, and analgesics.
