The Division for Behavioral Pharmacology (BEH) serves members interested in research on the behavioral effects of drugs. These investigations focus on how drugs alter behavior and encompass perspectives that range from descriptive to mechanistic. Behavioral pharmacologists examine drugs with an emphasis on effects in the whole organism and with an appreciation of the considerable influence of environmental variables on drug action. Areas of interest include, (but are not limited to): effects of drugs on conditioned or unconditioned behavior, application of receptor theory to behavioral pharmacology, pharmacological aspects of drug abuse, use of animal models to aid in the discovery and development of new pharmacological agents to treat neurological or psychiatric disorders, drug interactions, the effects of repeated or chronic exposure to drugs, and the use of pharmacological tools in the analysis of behavior.
