The Nervous System, Discoveries in Pharmacology, Volume One, the Second Edition in the Discoveries in Pharmacology series, presents commentary from contemporary scholars, an updated bibliography on subjects presented, and contributions from Nobel Prize winners and other pharmacology pioneers. The series brings together acknowledged experts in their fields, providing firsthand accounts of important discoveries and discussing scientific backgrounds and pivotal moments. This volume brings forth discussions on key discoveries in psycho- and neuro-pharmacology, hemodynamics, and hormones, including chapters on antipsychotic agents by Nobel winner Anders Carlsson, Willy Haefely on benzodiazepine, and butyrophenone-type neuroleptics by P. A. J. Janssen and J. P. Tollenaere.
