Product Overview

This volume brings together basic and clinical science to provide in-depth understanding and current knowledge concerning new conceptual insights into the CNS acting drugs and drugs of abuse and treatment of drug addiction.

Methamphetamine, MDMA, PMA and different solvents are the most widely abused drugs in the Europe, United States, Central America, South America and Asian Countries and their use has dramatically increased over the last two decades. These drugs of abuse are known to cause neurotoxicity in several species including not only rodents, dogs and nonhuman primates, but also humans. However, precise neurochemical mechanisms underlying this drug-induced neurotoxicity remain unclear.

This volume addresses the following:
1) Role of Genomics, Proteomics and Metabonomics in Drug-induced Neurotoxicity
2) Drugs of Abuse and Medication Development
3) Molecular Biology and Free Radicals in Drugs of Abuse-induced neurotoxicity
4) Substituted Amphetamines-induced Neurochemical Changes and Relationship to Neurotoxicity
5) Drug of Abuse and Imaging Brain Structure and Function
6) GHB/Volatile Solvent/Inhalant Neurotoxicity
