Product information Principles and Practice of Neuropsychopharmacology

Principles and Practice of Neuropsychopharmacology: A Clinical Reference for Residents, Physicians,and Biomedical Scientists is a concise yet comprehensive book that discusses the drugs used in the treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases from the perspective of practicing clinicians. There is a considerable overlap between these two specialties as neurologists often use the medicines used by psychiatrists and vice versa. This book addresses the merger of topics of mutual interest for them in a single volume of contemporary pharmacology. It provides detailed coverage of pharmacotherapy of neurological and psychiatric disorders in general practice. The content has been made more accessible with the judicious use of tables and figures, case examples, and details of neurochemical alterations. The book is useful for both beginners and advanced readers as it details clinical practices followed in dealing with psychiatric patients in developing nations like India to enhance practice-oriented learning and provides evidence-based guidelines from world’s leading medical bodies.

Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.
