Abstract

To produce its characteristic effects, a drug must be present in appropriate concentrations at its sites of action. The latter is not only a function of the dose administered, but also of the extent and rate of drug absorption, distribution, tissue binding, biotransformation, and excret...read more

Antipsychotic Drugs

Antipsychotic drugs are a class of medication primarily used to manage psychosis (including delusions, hallucinations, paranoia or disordered thought), principally in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Discover the latest research on antipsychotic drugs here

Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive neuroscience is the study of biological processes that underlie cognition and addresses the role of neural circuits in regulating cognitive activities. Here is the latest research.

Dopaminergic System

This feed focuses on projection neurons in the brain which are responsible for synthesis and release of neurotransmitter dopamine.

Psychoactive Drugs

Psychoactive drugs are psychotherapeutic drugs used to modify emotions and behavior in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses. Here is the latest research on psychoactive drugs and the pathways they modulate.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.

Psychopharmacology

is the scientific study of the effects drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. It is distinguished from neuropsychopharmacology, which emphasizes the correlation between drug-induced changes in the functioning of cells in the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior. Discover the latest research on psychopharmacology here

Stem Cells in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body and may be useful as a therapy for several diseases including neurodegenerative diseases. Discover the latest research on stem cells and neurodegenerative diseases here.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.
