A better understanding of brain functions has led to new therapies for many neurological diseases. This includes new understanding of conditions and diseases such as migraine, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

In this course, we discuss organization and major components of the nervous system, the structure of the neurons, and the mechanism by which nerves transmit information. This knowledge is essential for understanding the effects of drugs on both the nervous system itself, as well as many other body systems, such as the circulatory system and gastrointestinal system. We also review some common disorders of the nervous system and their respective pharmacological treatments.
