Developmental Psychopharmacology

  • Paul D. Mabry
  • Byron A. Campbell


One of the fastest growing scientific disciplines over the past ten years has been developmental neuroscience, and within this discipline an area that has attracted considerable scientific attention is developmental psychopharmacology. Since the early 1960’s, the annual scientific output in developmental psychopharmacology has mushroomed. There are a number of reasons for this heightened interest in ontogenetic drug effects, but perhaps the initial impetus derived from the thalidomide tragedy of the early 1960’s. At about the same time, the realization that physiological and behavioral function might be neurochemically coded served to stimulate further interest. As understanding of brain development increased, and as neurochemical and pharmacological techniques were refined, the number of ontogenetic studies increased proportionally.
