Reviewed by Erowid, 12/10/2002

While not an easy browse, The Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology addresses the known actions of neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, epinephrine, etc) in a well-organized and understandable way. Good for anyone with a serious interest in the workings of these substances.

  1. This is very terse and to the point, much like textbook writing. That said, even though it isn’t exactly a light read, it’s written in a clear manner that should be understandable by a reasonably intelligent person with some basic biology and chemistry knowledge.

    Not exactly a pleasure read, though this should be interesting for anyone who wants to know more about how psychoactive drugs do their thing in your brain, in specifics.

    3.5/5 stars
