Benzodiazepine Receptor Inverse Agonists Edited By Martin Sarter, David J. Nutt, and Richard G. Lister Discovered in the late 1970s and early 1980s, benzodiazepine receptor (BZR) inverse agonists have become the subject of intensive research because of their ability to modulate activity in neurotransmitter systems in a new manner. Benzodiazepine Receptor Inverse Agonists is the first comprehensive volume devoted to the pharmacology and psychopharmacology of these compounds. The chapters provide a contemporary and comprehensive overview of topics, ranging from receptor models developed to explain the neuronal effects of BZR inverse agonists, to the cognitive effects of particular inverse agonists in humans. Written by experts in the field and based on a decade of current research, this volume integrates basic receptor-related research, animal behavior pharmacology, and human psychopharmacological research to provide a complete overview of the topic. Benzodiazepine Receptor Inverse Agonists is invaluable for anyone working in the field of neuroscience, in particular pharmacology, psychopharmacology, behavioral pharmacology, behavioral neuroscience, psychobiology, neurophysiology, and neurobiology.
