Basic Psychopharmacology (v2.0)

Producer: COACS (Commercial and Academic Services), Ltd.

This package, developed at the University of Galway (Republic of Ireland), introduces the student to psychopharmacology. It is divided into 3 subjects containing a total of 11 activity modules. The student first learns about the neuroscientific foundation of psychopharmacology (blood-brain barrier, drug entry into brain, electrophysiological mechanisms, biochemical mechanisms), then continues by considering some of the clinical applications of psychopharmacology (hypnotics, anxiolytics, antidepresssants, antipsychotics). In the final subject of the package, the student looks at research methods used in psychopharmacology, including laboratory techniques, use of animal models and their limitations, and some of the problems of clinical trials.
