The science of marijuana by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

38 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Science of Marijuana the author explains the remarkable advances that have been made in scientific research on cannabis with the discovery of specific receptors and the existence of naturally occurring cannabis-like substances in the brain. The book also gives an objective and up-to-date assessment of the scientific basis for the medical use of cannabis and what risks this may entail. The recreational use of the drug and how it affects users is described along with some predictions about how attitudes to cannabis use may change in the future."--Jacket
Behavioral pharmacology by Susan D Iversen( Book )

Speed, ecstasy, ritalin : the science of amphetamines by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a leading authority on psychoactive drugs explores the uses and abuses of amphetamines. Starting with a look at the origins of amphetamines, their use in wartime, their use by poets, musicians - even a President of the US, it presents a fascinating and accessible account of amphetamine use. It examines the evidence for the claims that drugs like ecstasy kill, and considers the widespread use of amphetamines for ADHD - presenting a thorough account based on science and fact, rather than dogma."--Jacket

Introduction to neuropsychopharmacology( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book expands on the molecular and cellular foundations of the classic Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology, Eighth Edition (Cooper, Bloom, and Roth) by now including the behavioral methods used to study psychoactive drugs in experimental animals and in humans. Authored by four founders of modern neuroscience, this concise and comprehensive text covers the current series of medications used to treat diseases of the brain and nervous system--both psychiatric and neurologic--and the neuroscientific information that explains how these medications act on the brain from the molecular to the clinical level. The text ranges from psychotropic drugs that affect mood and behavior to anesthetics, sedatives, hypnotics, narcotics, anticonvulsants, and analgesics, as well as a variety of drugs that affect the autonomic nervous system

Drugs, neurotransmitters, and behavior by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 18 of the Handbook of Psychopharmacology represents the first of a series of volumes intended to bring earlier sections of the work up to date. Volumes 7, 8, and 9, published in 1977 and 1978, dealt with principles of behavior, drugs and neurotransmitters, and neuroanatomy. In subsequent volumes dedicated to these issues, a mixture of topics will be covered in a given volume, covering both advances in basic knowledge in these three areas of the subject and reviews of theoretical and meth odological issues deemed to be of particular relevance at present.

Volumes 7 and 8 of the Handbook were published in 1977. In Volume 7 methods for studying unconditioned and conditioned behavior were reviewed. Attention was given to both ethological methods and operant conditioning techniques as applied to some selected aspects of behavior. Genetic, developmental, and environmental factors influencing behavior were also discussed. In Volume 8, neurotransmitter systems, and in par ticular brain circuits, were discussed in relation to behavior and to the effects of psychoactive drugs on behavior. The coverage was not exhaus tive because of space limitations. The topics selected for review were, at the time, the focus of considerable experimental effort; they included homeostasis-motivated behaviors: sleep, locomotion, feeding, drinking, and sexual behavior. Brain dopamine systems were therefore discussed in depth, since they were already known to be centrally involved in motivated behaviors. Learning mechanisms and emotion were reviewed in the remaining chapters. In 1984 we initiated an update of behavioral pharmacology to review areas of progress within the same scope as the earlier volumes. This update continues in Volume 19. Among the contributions are several that represent important advances in analyzing behavior and the use of more sophisticated methods to define the effect of drugs on particular aspects of behavior. The chapters by Blundell on feeding and Miczek on aggres sion illustrate the sophistication of modern ethopharmacology
Dopamine handbook( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discovery of dopamine in 1957-1958 was one of the seminal events in the development of modern neuroscience, and has been extremely important for the development of modern therapies of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Dopamine has a fundamental role in almost all aspects of behavior: from motor control to mood regulation, cognition and addiction and reward, and dopamine research has been unique within the neurosciences in the way it has bridged basic science and clinical practice. Over the decades research into the role of dopamine in health and disease has been in the forefront of modern neuroscience. This book is the first single-volume publication to capture current progress and excitement in this dynamic research field
