The science of marijuana by Leslie L Iversen( )

56 editions published between 2000 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Science of Marijuana the author explains the remarkable advances that have been made in scientific research on cannabis with the discovery of specific receptors and the existence of naturally occurring cannabis-like substances in the brain. The book also gives an objective and up-to-date assessment of the scientific basis for the medical use of cannabis and what risks this may entail. The recreational use of the drug and how it affects users is described along with some predictions about how attitudes to cannabis use may change in the future."--Jacket
Drugs : a very short introduction by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brief introduction to drugs that provides information on legal, prescription, and illegal drugs, explaining what they are, how they work, and how medicines are developed and tested
Speed, ecstasy, ritalin : the science of amphetamines by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a leading authority on psychoactive drugs explores the uses and abuses of amphetamines. Starting with a look at the origins of amphetamines, their use in wartime, their use by poets, musicians - even a President of the US, it presents a fascinating and accessible account of amphetamine use. It examines the evidence for the claims that drugs like ecstasy kill, and considers the widespread use of amphetamines for ADHD - presenting a thorough account based on science and fact, rather than dogma."--Jacket

Drugs, neurotransmitters, and behavior by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 1984 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 18 of the Handbook of Psychopharmacology represents the first of a series of volumes intended to bring earlier sections of the work up to date. Volumes 7, 8, and 9, published in 1977 and 1978, dealt with principles of behavior, drugs and neurotransmitters, and neuroanatomy. In subsequent volumes dedicated to these issues, a mixture of topics will be covered in a given volume, covering both advances in basic knowledge in these three areas of the subject and reviews of theoretical and meth odological issues deemed to be of particular relevance at present.

Introduction to neuropsychopharmacology by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book expands on the molecular and cellular foundations of the classic Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology, Eighth Edition (Cooper, Bloom, and Roth) by now including the behavioral methods used to study psychoactive drugs in experimental animals and in humans. Authored by four founders of modern neuroscience, this concise and comprehensive text covers the current series of medications used to treat diseases of the brain and nervous system--both psychiatric and neurologic--and the neuroscientific information that explains how these medications act on the brain from the molecular to the clinical level. The text ranges from psychotropic drugs that affect mood and behavior to anesthetics, sedatives, hypnotics, narcotics, anticonvulsants, and analgesics, as well as a variety of drugs that affect the autonomic nervous system
Dopamine handbook by Leslie L Iversen( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discovery of dopamine in 1957-1958 was one of the seminal events in the development of modern neuroscience, and has been extremely important for the development of modern therapies of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This publication captures current progress and excitement in this dynamic research field.--[Source inconnue]

Biochemical studies of CNS receptors by Leslie L Iversen( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now eight years since the first Handbook volumes on Basic Neuro­ pharmacology were published, and there have been many important advances. As in many other areas in science, progress in this field has depended to a considerable extent on the availability of new experimental methods, and Volume 15 reviews some major recent developments, including new autoradiographic techniques that allow direct visualization of drug and transmitter receptors in the nervous system, and the pin­ pointing of the precise locations of the changes in brain metabolism elicited by various drug treatments. Volume 16 and 17 cover two of the most active areas for basic research in psychopharmacology at the moment: the characterization of drug and transmitter receptors in brain by radioligand binding techniques, and studies of the role of small peptides in brain function. The latter area, in particular, illustrates how rapidly progress continues to be made in basic research on the mechanisms of chemical communication within the nervous system. Eight years ago when the Handbook first appeared none of the opioid peptides (enkephalins and endorphins) had yet been identified. Since then a whole new area of basic biological research has focused on these substances, and in addition we know of more than thirty other neuropeptides with putative eNS trans­ mitter functions

Underlying the design of the Handbook of Psychopharmacology is a prejudice that the study of drug influences on the mind has advanced to a stage where basic research and clinical application truly mesh. These later volumes of the Handbook are structured according to this conception. In certain volumes, groups of drugs are treated as classes with chapters ranging from basic chemistry to clinical application. Other volumes are assembled around topic areas such as anxiety or affective disorders. Thus, besides chapters on individual drug classes, we have included essays addressing broad areas such as "The Limbic-Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal System and Human BeƯ havior" and "Peptides and the Central Nervous System." Surveying these diverse contributions, one comes away with a sentiment that, far from being an "applied" science borrowing from fundamental brain chemistry and physiology, psychopharmacology has instead provided basic researchers with the tools and conceptual approaches which now are advancing neurobiology to a central role in modern biology. Especially gratifying is the sense that, while contributing to an understanding of how the brain functions, psychopharmacology is a discipline whose fruits offer genuine help to the mentally ill with promises of escalating benefits in the future.
