Psychopharmacology is the scientific study of the drugs effects have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. Psychoactive drugs interact with particular target sites or receptors found in the nervous system to induce widespread changes in physiological or psychological functions. The specific interaction between drugs and their receptors is referred to as drug action, and the widespread changes in physiological or psychological function is referred to as drug effect. The field of psychopharmacology studies a wide range of substances with various types of psychoactive properties, focusing primarily on the chemical interactions with the brain.
