Filled with an array of useful definitions and amazing historic discoveries about the nervous system, this book will bring you up to speed on the brain/behavior relationship, basic neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and the mechanistic actions of mood-altering drugs, including alcohol, marijuana, anxiolytics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, cocaine, and opiates.Interspersed with original eye-catching illustrations, Drugs, the Brain, and Behavior provides the same type of captivating instruction found in Dr. Brick's highly successful courses.
