The use and abuse of drugs, and their effects on behavior
The book integrates information from the various fields, including pharmacology, neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry, to provide a broad perspective on how drugs affect behavioral processes.
Drugs, Brain and Behavior describes the psychological effects of drugs, and how drug actions can be understood in terms of effects on the brain. This discussion includes drugs that are used for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, as well as common drugs of abuse. Rather than simply focusing on drug dependence and addiction, this text also places considerable emphasis on drug treatments for various psychiatric disorders such as: schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, parkinsonism, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease. It also combines neurotransmitter-based approaches to the field with perspectives that emphasize specific drugs and distinct drug categories. Intended for Undergraduate courses in Psychopharmacology and/or Drugs and Behavior, this new edition of Drugs, Brain, and Behavior provides an overview of the field of psychopharmacology, which focuses on the behavioral effects of drugs.

After earning his doctorate in experimental psychology at the University of New Mexico in 1971, Dr. Grilly spent the next two years investigating the behavioral effects of cannabinoids after acute and chronic exposure in chimpanzees at Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo, New Mexico. He then moved to Cleveland, Ohio, to take a position as a faculty member in the Psychology Department at Cleveland State University, where he spent the remainder of his 38 year career. His research at CSU, primarily with rats, involved investigations of a variety of psychoactive drugs on a variety of behaviors. These included investigating the potential use of signal detection theory in assessing nociception and opiate withdrawal, determining the effects of drugs on attentional processes (e.g., naltrexone, diprenorphine, morphine, barbiturates, amphetamine, cocaine, fluoxetine, nicotine, pemoline) and conditioned avoidance/escape behavior (e.g., clonidine, chlorpromazine, morphine), determining whether the effects of psychostimulants (e.g., cocaine, amphetamine) on sustained attention change with aging, and comparing the effects of very low to very high doses of amphetamine in rats with those shown in humans. He also conducted research with humans investigating the effect of marijuana on visual short term memory and the changes in people’s perceptions of the effects of marijuana on driving.
Author #2: Dr. John Salamone received his bachelor's degree from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri in 1978. He was a psychology major and biology minor. Dr. Salamone then entered the psychobiology program at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and graduated with a Ph.D. in 1982. For postdoctoral training, Dr. Salamone received a National Science Foundation grant, and studied at Cambridge University in England. Dr. Salamone stayed in England for several more years, working at Merck, Sharpe and Dohme pharmaceutical laboratories. Upon returning to the United States, Dr. Salamone joined the Behavioral Neuroscience department at the University of Pittsburgh in 1986, and joined the Psychology Department at UConn in the fall of 1988. Dr. Salamone is now a Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor; he also is the chair of the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience, and the head of the Behavioral Neuroscience Division of the Psychology Department. Dr. Salamone's research is largely in the fields of behavioral neuroscience and psychopharmacology, with an emphasis on studies related to Parkinson’s disease, depression, motivation, and effort-related decision making. Dr. Salamone has been the research advisor for more than 40 undergraduate honors students at the University of Connecticut. He was inducted as a member of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2002, and he has received the University of Connecticut Alumni Association Award for Excellence in Teaching. His daughter, Isabella Salamone, is currently an honor student studying biology at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Salamone’s hobbies include travel, astronomy, book collecting and cooking.
