journals were pulled from their leading status.
Lucking, "Tremors in Parkinson's disease: symptom analysis and rating," Clinical Neuropharmacology
In 2016, Zadina and his team published a report in Neuropharmacology
showing that they had successfully treated pain in rats using a peptide-based drug that targets the same pain-relieving opioid receptor as morphine while avoiding common opioid side effects including motor impairment, respiratory depression, and rising tolerance--which can often lead patients to increasing their dosages, setting them on a path to addiction.

This publication deals with one of the most important animal models in neurotoxicologicy and neuropharmacology
. It is based on the toxicant MPTP that is metabolized in vivo to [MPP.sup.+], which then causes Parkinsonean symptoms.
Sheng, "NMDA receptors in nervous system diseases," Neuropharmacology
Fava, "Acute hemifacial dystonia possibly induced by Clebopride," Clinical Neuropharmacology
Millan, "Serotonin (5-HT)2A receptor activation enhances dialysate levels of dopamine and noradrenaline, but not 5-HT, in the frontal cortex of freely-moving rats," Neuropharmacology
Just this past winter, he and his team published a study in Neuropharmacology
reporting that they had treated pain in rats without causing the five most common side effects associated with opioids, including increased tolerance, motor impairment, and respiratory depression, which leads to most opioid-related deaths.
: A foundation for clinical neuroscience.
Thus for the clinical neurologist or psychiatrist the prerequisite for good practice is a general physician's knowledge and experience, not comprehensive specialization in a single method or subfield like neuropharmacology
or cognitive psychotherapy.
