Summary

For courses in Drugs and Behavior
 
A contemporary survey of behavioral pharmacology
Drugs and Behavior: An Introduction to Behavioral Pharmacology provides a clear overview of this intriguing discipline, as it helps students understand human behaviors and reflect on developments in the field. Taking over from longtime author William McKim, and continuing the personalized style and enthusiastic approach for which the text has been known, new lead author Stephanie Hancock describes basic pharmacological concepts of drug administration and pharmacokinetics, research methodology and clinical trials, tolerance and withdrawal, drug conditioning, addiction processes, and the neuroscience of drug action. In each chapter, these concepts are applied to different classes of recreational and therapeutic drugs within a historical and social backdrop. The Eighth Edition has been substantially revised and updated to include the newest research findings and real-world examples related to drug use and addiction.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.
