Description

In addition to updating each chapter and including a new discussion of the gaseous neuromodulators nitric oxide and carbon monoxide, the authors have dropped a formerly featured chapter on metabolism in the CNS and incorporated most of this material into a new chapter on the genetic basis of neurological and psychiatric diseases. With the almost bi-weekly discovery of genes that appear to be involved in diseases of the nervous system, this area has the potential for providing a revolutionary kind of therapy, and it has been accorded greater attention. This versatile text continues to be the first choice for basic neuropharmacology and neuroscience courses in medical schools and at the undergraduate level, pharmacy schools, graduate pharmacology programs, and residency programs in psychiatry and neurology.show more
