Intended for research (beginning) neuroscientists, pharmacologists and and biological psychiatrists, this book is the first in a new series which aims to provide up-to-date reviews of its topical subject from the biochemical and pharmacological points of view with the historical perspective and prospects for clinical application. The scientific/biological approach to psychiatric conditions is relatively new but gaining in momentum. A new section covering this area has been introduced to the new MRCPysch course, and this book is recommended reading for the course.
