Laminated, pictorial hard covers, spine is lightly sunned. Small owner name at top corner of first free endpaper. Binding is tight, text pages are clean and unmarked. Book appears to have had little use and is in Fine condition apart from the slightly faded spine and owner name. Encompassing recent advances in molecular pharmacology and brain imaging, Drugs, The Brain and Behavior offers a unique breadth of coverage from historical accounts of drug use, through clinical and preclinical behavioural studies, to the latest research on drug effects in transgenic mouse models. The first section of the book provides extensive foundation material, including the basic principles of pharmacology, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy, synaptic transmission, and methods in psychopharmacology. The second describes the key features of major neurotransmitter systems, while the third and fourth sections discuss theories and mechanisms of drug addiction and psychopathology. The book is richly illustrated and Breakout boxes ensure the student remains engaged throughout.
