Behavioral Pharmacology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of substances that are used to modify behavior. While different classes of substances have known effects, one has only to see a group of people drinking to excess to recognize that not everyone responds in the same way to a given substance. Why do substances have the behavioral effects they do, and why do individuals vary in their responses to them? This book provides a conceptual framework for answering such questions.

Introduction to Behavioral Pharmacology includes a short overview of behavioral analysis and general pharmacology, followed by detailed discussion of assessment of drug effects, the stimulus properties of drugs, drug abuse, and more.

Book News Annotation:

This work provides a conceptual framework for understanding behavioral pharmacology, how drugs produce their behavioral effects, and the variables that influence drug action. It overviews procedures and concepts of behavior analysis and pharmacology, and describes how drugs affect the brain and how these actions relate to behavioral change. It summarizes procedures used by behavioral pharmacologists to study drug effects in humans and animals, discusses how behavioral pharmacology can contribute to the evaluation of psychotropic drugs, and discusses drug abuse from the perspective of behavioral pharmacology. No training in pharmacology or behavioral analysis is required. Poling is affiliated with Western Michigan University. Byrne is affiliated with the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.
