Research that led to The Neurotransmitter Era in Neuropsychopharmacology started in Brodie’s Laboratory of Chemical Pharmacology at the National Institutes of Health, USA. Axelrod, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in 1970, was a collaborator of Brodie in the early 1950s, and Carlsson, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in 2000, spent nearly half a year in Brodie’s Laboratory in 1955.
This book consists of a collection of reviews prepared by basic scientists and clinicians involved in different areas of neuropsychopharmacology.
The book focuses on the neurotransmitter era in neuropsychopharmacology.
