This new volume plans to provide a comprehensive overview of the drugs that act on the central and peripheral nervous system. It will describe the nervous system associated diseases and their treatment as well as current status and future opportunities and challenges.

The editor explains that there are few excellent brief books on neuropharmacology. Therefore, he aims to fill this void by providing an easy-to-understand volume that deals with drugs affecting the nervous system at a more advanced level that will be accessible to upper-level students, faculty, and researchers.

Topics planned for the volume include:

Introduction to Neuropharmacology
Neurochemistry of Neurochemicals
Cholinergic Agonists
Cholinergic Antagonists
Adrenergic Agonists
Adrenergic Antagonists
Drugs Used in the Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease
Drugs Used in the Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease
Drugs Used in the Treatment of Huntington’s Disease
Drugs Used in the Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Sedative and Hypnotic Drugs
Local Anesthetics
General Anesthetics
Skeletal Muscle Relaxants
Antimanic Drugs
Central Nervous System Stimulants
Cognition Enhancers
Antipsychotic Drugs
Antianxiety Drugs
Antiseizure Drugs
Therapeutic Gases: Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Nitric Oxide, and Helium
Alcohols and their Antagonists
Opioid Analgesics and Antagonists
Drugs of Addiction and Abuse
