  1. Neuropharmacology is
    Nervous system. The study of drugs that change the NS
  2. Neuropharmacologic drugs produce effects equivalent to
    Exciting or suppressing neuronal activity
  3. How do neuropharmacologic drugs even work
    By changing the activity of the receptor
  4. Does activating a receptor make the physiologic process go faster
    No. Take drugs that mimic acetylcholine at receptors on the heart, for example, drug activated the receptors, but it slowed down the heart rate
  5. Drugs that activate receptors
    Agonists
  6. Drugs that prevent the receptor to be activated
    Antagonists
  7. Many neuropharmacologic agents display a (high, low) degree of selectivity
    High, because the NS has many different receptors
  8. When studying neuropharmalogic drugs, study
    (1) The receptor(s) that the drugs acts on (2) normal responses for activation and (3) If the drug increases or decreases
