About this book


In Antidepressants: Current Trends and Future Directions, leading-edge investigators distill the dramatic recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms responsible for antidepressant action. The authoritative contributors offer strategies to improve current therapies grounded on biogenic amine-based concepts. By departing from traditional strategies, the authors offer alternatives to therapies that often work too slowly or not at all, and suggest how the many recent advances in molecular biology and genetics might best be exploited in the design of optimal new therapies.

Antidepressants: Current Trends and Future Directions summarizes novel concepts of antidepressant therapy that attempt to exploit provocative new insights from the laboratory to improve current, biogenic amine-based therapies. Readers will find the book an exceptional resource in opening the door to the development of newer and more effective antidepressant therapies.

"This is a timely, much needed addition to the library of a psychopharmacology researcher who is interested in developing new studies in the field of antidepressant functioning or who needs a thorough update on cutting edge antidepressant pharmacology and theory."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
