This volume illustrates how the knowledge of transmitter pathways combined with the techniques of behavioral science can be applied to the study of specific aspects of behavioral control. The involvement of dopamine and noradrenaline pathways in reward processes are reviewed, as are the neuropharmacological bases of drinking, eating, sexual behavior and sleep. Other contributors consider, both from the behavioral and pharmacological standpoints, attentional mechanisms, the response to non-reward and punishment, and learning and memory.
