The first section of the book provides extensive foundation material, including the basic principles of pharmacology, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy, synaptic transmission, and methods in psychopharmacology.

The book is richly illustrated and 'Breakout boxes' ensure the student remains engaged throughout.
