Description

Advances in Behavioral Pharmacology, Volume 4 covers papers about the advances in behavioral pharmacology. The book presents papers on the behavioral mechanisms of drug dependence; the effects of food deprivation on drug-reinforced behavior across most types of drugs abused by humans, routes of self-administration and species; and a biobehavioral approach to treatment of amphetamine addiction. The text also describes the behavioral effects of nicotine in human and infrahuman studies; the behavioral pharmacology of cigarette smoking; the problems and perspectives in the behavioral toxicity of lead; and the use of discriminative behavior as an index of toxicity. Behavioral pharmacologists, psychiatrists, pharmacologists, psychologists, physicians, and students taking these courses will find the book invaluable.
