Psychopharmacology

Psychopharmacology is defined as a scientific study that deals with the effect of drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. Psychopharmacology is distinguished from Neuropsychopharmacology that emphasizes the correlation between drug induced changes within the functioning of cells within the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior. Psychoactive drugs interact mainly with particular receptors or target sites found in the nervous system to induce widespread changes in psychological or physiological functions. The specific interaction between drugs and their receptors is referred to as drug action, and the widespread changes in physiological or psychological function is referred to as drug effect.
