GAIN A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO HUMAN NEUROLOGIC DISORDERS
Molecular Neuropharmacology first reviews the fundamental biochemistry of the functioning nervous system and then describes how nerve cells communicate with one another through numerous types of neurotransmitters involving amino acids, monoamines, neuropeptides, and neurotrophic factors, among several others.
The neuropharmacology and neural circuits that underlie complex behaviors as well as major neural disorders are also discussed as are the drugs used to treat those conditions. In the final section, the authors use the concepts presented in the first two sections to explainhow irregularities in the biochemistry of neuronal interactions can lead to a wide array of clinical manifestations.

The first few chapters are introduction in molecular neurobiology (what are neurons, glis, synapse, etc), the signaling pathways, gene expression following neuronal activity, so on.
Then it dictates a chapter for each neurotransmitter.
The last section is for neurlogical disease (application of what is explained in the first two sections).
This textbook was my reference while taking the comprehensive exam for the graduate school.
