Neuropharmacology is concerned with drug-induced changes in the functioning of cells in the nervous system.[1]. Within the discipline of neuropharmacology are two branches, behavioral and molecular.

Neuropharmacology is concerned with the study of the neurochemical interactions of neuropeptides, neurohormones, neuromodulators, enzymes, secondary messenger systems of the central nervous system, co-transporters, ion channels, receptor proteins and more.
