Neuropharmacology is the study of effects of drugs on nervous system and aims in developing compounds that offer therapeutic benefits in humans with psychiatric and neurological disease. There are two branches of neuropharmacology i.e. behavioural and molecular. Behavioural neuropharmacology deals with the study of how drug affects human behaviour and how drug dependence and addiction affect the human brain. Molecular neuropharmacology deals with the study of neurons with their neurochemical interactions aiming in developing drugs that have helpful effects on neurological functions.
