"Methods in Behavioral Pharmacology" offers a complete description and critical evaluation of most, if not all, methods available to study the effects of drugs on behaviour. It is not limited to the analysis of a particular class of pharmacological agents in a limited number of paradigms. "Methods in Behavioral Pharmacology" covers all paradigms without reference to specific pharmacological compounds. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the methodology used to study the behavioural effects of legal and illegal drugs. It also provides an in-depth presentation of dependent variables, their quantification and a critical evaluation of their advantages and disadvantages.
