Advances in Behavioral Pharmacology, Volume 3 covers papers dealing with various aspects of the ways in which drug effects are related to and perhaps modified by the rate of responding. The book discusses the behavioral actions of benzodiazepines and considers the extent to which these actions are consistent with the proposition that these effects are partially or entirely determined by control rates of responding. The text then describes rate-dependence and the effects of phenothiazine antipsychotics in pigeons; the rate-convergent effects of drugs; and the rate-dependent effects of extra stimuli, of drugs, and drug-state change. Historical, mathematical and alternative considerations in quantitation in behavioral pharmacology, as well as the history and status of rate-dependency investigations are also considered.
The book then tackles the scope and limitations in the explanation and analysis of the behavioral effects of drugs; drug effects on behaviors maintained by different events; and the importance of identifying which of these factors contributes to the behavior studied in any given experiment. Pharmacologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and students taking these disciplines will find the book useful.
