The goal of this book is to provide an introduction to psychoactive drugs and behavior. Drugs and Behavior will focus on the interrelationship between psychological and physiological processes that are often overlooked by textbooks in this market. With the increased interest in neuroscience, the authors pay particular attention ito behavioral and nervous system processes as they relate to drugs and drug use, as well as their implications for specific drug categories. Using a unique approach, the authors integrate relevant examples from history, popular culture, and literature that will engage students and help illustrate concepts. Color diagrams of neurons, neurotransmitters, and brain anatomy will provide students with structural representations that will enhance their understanding of the psychological and physiological processes involved in drug interaction. In a student-friendly and accessible manner, this text offers students both a scientific examination of the effects of drugs on behavior and an understanding of the contemporary issues related to drug use and abuse. Key features include: * Presentation of nerve cell and neuroanatomical issues important for understanding the mechanisms of actions of psychoactive drugs. * Learning theory based explanations of reward and punishment. This focus would include discussion of these concepts as they apply to behavior in general, as well as to specific drugs. * Presentation of drugs and drug trade as significant international and cross-cultural issues. * Use of historic, visual art, film and literature-based perspectives on drugs and drug use. * Consideration of legal and economic impact of drug trade and use. * End of chapter critical thinking questions to encourage further discussion * Accompanying Web site will include updates on research and related web links * Supplements should include: Instructor's manual with test bank - hard copy and on CD-ROM; and Power Point Slides
