9780133771282: Drugs and Behavior: An Introduction to Behavioral Pharmacology

Designed for students from diverse backgrounds, this text provides students with a background in the field of behavioural pharmacology and prepares them to analyze drug information from a variety of sources. It not only describes the effects of drugs on behaviour, but also the various ways that behaviour principles facilitate an understanding of both the actions of drugs and the way people use them. Each chapter provides comparable information on many classes of both drugs of abuse and psychotherapeutic drugs, including their neurophysiological mechanism of action, their effects on behaviour, and a discussion of the historical and social context in which the drug is used.
