Psychopharmacology

Psychopharmacology (from Greek ψῡχήpsȳkhē|breath, life, soul|label=none}}; φάρμακονpharmakon|drug|label=none}}; and -λογία-logia|label=none}}) 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.
