This book presents a unique, integrated approach to psychopharmacology, drawing from many disciplines to describe the brain systems that govern behavior and the mechanisms whereby psychotropic drugs affect these systems, during both normal and abnormal functioning. The systems analyzed include those for waking and sleeping, learning and memory, and reward and punishment. Among the neuropsychiatric disorders that can result from their dysfunction are anxiety states, memory failure, drug dependence, chronic pain, and psychosis. With its attention to the integration of normal brain functions with the processes of disease and the effects of drugs, this volume is an exceptionally useful resource for the teaching of psychopharmacology, and for the interpretation of laboratory results in neuropsychiatric research. It also may serve as a valuable guide to the prescription of drugs in clinical practice.
