    I'm very interested in the field of Neuropsychopharmacology. I wasn't sure what section to put this under since this is a very interdisciplinary study. Anyways, on to my point. I was wondering the following questions:

    What resources could I use to learn more about this field (books, lectures, et alli)?
    What are some of the best colleges which provide material for this field?
    What potential career choices would I have with expertise in this field?

    Thank you for your help. All replies appreciated. :-)

    Once a door is opened it never truly closes
    Once a door is closed new ones are open
    Two concepts forever intwined it is you decision to make them for the better or the worse.

    Being invisble lets you run away from pain
    Being visible gives you irraplacable experiences.

    It's basically the study of how drugs affect the brain anatomically and psychologically. The study mainly seeks to cure various mental disorders.

    From wikipedia:
    Neuropsychopharmacology is an interdisciplinary science related to psychopharmacology (how drugs affect the mind) and fundamental neuroscience. It entails research of mechanisms of neuropathology, pharmacodynamics (drug action), psychiatric illness, and states of consciousness. These studies are instigated at the detailed level involving neurotransmission/receptor activity, bio-chemical processes, and neural circuitry. Neuropsychopharmacology supersedes psychopharmacology in the areas of "how" and "why", and additionally addresses other issues of brain function. Accordingly, the clinical aspect of the field includes psychiatric (psychoactive) as well as neurologic (non-psychoactive) pharmacology-based treatments.
