We have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of The Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology 8th Edition PDF.
This classic text gives a uniquely lucid and lively view of neurotransmitters, their role in nervous system function, and their involvement in the mechanisms of psychiatric drug action. For three decades it has served as an essential guide for students of neuroscience and psychopharmacology, residents in psychiatry and neurology, and clinicians and scientists. Both authoritative and very readable, it has been thoroughly updated for each edition.
In the 8th Edition more space is devoted to clinical examples, subclasses of receptors that provide targets for new drugs, molecular genetics, the major problem of drug delivery to the brain, and the growing recognition of nicotine receptors in the brain and their possible involvement in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. In addition, the book’s format has been enlarged and a second color added to many of the illustrations.
Features of The Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology.
- In this new edition of their textbook, Cooper (emeritus, pharmacology, Yale U.), Bloom (neuropharmacology, The Scripps Research Institute), and Roth (pharmacology and psychiatry, Yale U.) retain the structure of earlier editions, introducing the biochemistry and physiology of nervous tissue before moving on to individual discussions of the various neurotransmitters.
- Discussions of drugs are included as they relate to the particular neurotransmitter under examination.
