Psychopharmacology  Photo Psychopharmacology is the scientific study of the effects drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. It is distinguished from neuropsychopharmacology, which emphasizes the correlation between drug-induced changes in the functioning of cells in the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior. The use of drugs to assuage the symptoms of mental disorders makes psychoactive agents, especially anti-psychotics and antidepressants among the most widely prescribed pharmaceuticals today. Much discussion surrounds the use of stimulants to treat attention-deficit problems and the side effects of antidepressants, especially for children. The general effectiveness of antidepressants when measured against a placebo remains provocative, though the treatments that prove most effective combine drugs with psychotherapy.
