This is Volume 1 in the series ‘Pioneers in Neuropsychopharmacology.’
Joel Elkes was recipient of the CINP-Pfizer Pioneers in Psychopharmacology Award at the XXXIst CINP Congress in Glasgow. The content of this book is not restricted to a collection of Elkes’ papers in neuropsychopharmacology, but includes also his contributions to other areas of behavioral science and some of his personal reflections. Elkes connects. His interests range wide – from molecular building blocks of the brain to social behavior. In each area his inquisitive spirit poses questions, questions he continues to ask even if answers are not readily forthcoming.
