|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||BIO/14|
The aim of the course is to provide the students with knowledge about the main classes of drugs active on the central nervous system. The course will be focused to study the main pharmacological strategies used to modulate the neurochemical and behavioral responses to affect the pathogenetic mechanisms of the main CNS diseases.
The student will be able to understand the mechanisms of action through which drugs affect synaptic transmission and the role of receptor modulation in such as effect. Morever, the student will be aware of the current cellular and molecular alterations responsible of principal CNS diseases and how the drugs can interfere with thes epathogenetic mechanisms.
Teaching will be performed by frontal lessonsin English
1) Mechanism of pain trasmission to the CNS, antalgic drugs (opioids, adjuvant drugs)
2) Anti-parkinson drugs
4) antiepileptic drugs
5) ansiolitic and ipnotic drugs
6) antipsychotic drugs
8) drugs used in dementia
