Scope: This course focuses on the neuronal and neurochemcial
mechanisms underlying the behavioral response to psychoactive drugs.
A basic understanding of neuronal function is required; some
background in chemistry is helpful but not essential. Course material
has been chosen to provide detailed, up-to-date information that can
serve as both a guide for following research in the field and a basis
for understanding current approaches to drug therapy for various
neurological and psychiatric disorders.
