Summary

This new volume, Advances in Neuropharmacology: Drugs and Therapeutics, provides a comprehensive overview of the drugs that act on the central and peripheral nervous systems. It thoroughly describes the diseases that are associated with the nervous system and drugs used their treatment while also looking at the current status of these drugs and their future potential and challenges.

This book is divided into three sections that describe the nervous system associated diseases and their treatment as well as current status and future opportunities and challenges. Section 1 focuses on the drugs that affect the functions of the autonomic nervous system to produce therapeutic effects. These drugs may act presynaptically by manipulating the genesis, storage, and secretion, and by blocking the action of neurotransmitters. Some drugs may trigger or impede postsynaptic receptors. Section 2 focuses on drugs that affect the central nervous system, including antianxiety drugs, sedative and hypnotic drugs, antidepressant drugs, antipsychotic drugs, antiepileptic drugs, and many more. It covers the Pharmacological Management of various diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, Huntington’s disease, and others.
