Drugs and the Brain

by Solomon Snyder

Feb 1997

Dr. Snyder has published a revised edition of his original 1986 work, Drugs and the Brain. In his book he describes what scientists have discovered so far about the mechanisms by which drugs affect the brain. The text covers not only the brain disorders commonly refereed to as mental illnesses, but also other brain disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Well-done diagrams and illustrations supplement the text, which can sometimes be challenging to those without a scientific bent. Dr. Snyder, who has been a leader in the field of brain research and in the use of drugs in psychiatry for a quarter of a century, is director of the Department of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University.

Drugs and the Brain by Solomon Snyder can be ordered or bought through your local bookstore. Scientific American Library, 1996. 228 pp. $19.95.
