4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This is an outstanding new introductory textbook on neuropharmacology and its implications for cognitive neuroscience. Anyone who wants to keep abreast of this rapidly emerging science needs to learn the fundamentals which this book would help facilitate. I highly recommend it."--Doody's Review Service

Molecular Neuropharmacology offers a clear, thorough explanation of the molecular functioning of the nervous system in normal and disease states. More than three hundred concept-clarifying full-color illustrations along with didactic text boxes provide an in-depth understanding of nerve cell receptors, their effectors and second messenger targets, and the molecular genetics that are often impacted by these systems. You will also learn how malfunction of these molecular systems relates to human disease and the corresponding medical treatment.

Molecular Neuropharmacology is the most relevant, well-written resource available to help you make the connection between neuropharmacology and clinical neuroscience.

Numerous figures and didactic boxes help you understand and remember complex subject matter for efficient, on-the-spot review. The book's all-inclusive, high-yield coverage includes:

  • The fundamentals of neuropharmacology
  • Neural substrates of drug action
  • The neuropharmacology of specific functions and disorders--encompassing control of movement, mood and emotion, memory and dementia, and other vital areas
  • NEW! A streamlined redesign that makes the book even more practical and accessible than ever
  • NEW! More illustrations--all 300 now in full color!
