The pharmacology of the central nervous system (CNS) content focuses on drug groups that have an effect on the neuroconduction of the brain and spinal cord. These include sedative hypnotics, local anesthetics, opioid analgesics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, muscle relaxants, antiseizure, and movement disorder medications commonly used in neurology. Student learning is enhanced with previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and physiology of the CNS, with an emphasis on neuroconduction, presynaptic and postsynaptic receptors, and neurotransmitters.
