Screening for Psychotherapeutic Chemicals by Analysis of Conscious Activity in the Mouse
The notions and methods discussed below will at least allow the screening of new types of drugs. New types of drugs in the screening stage will not only improve the synaptic mechanism for excitation and inhibition, as conventional drugs do, but will also improve the performance of the operating system of the brain. This suggests the existence of chemical compounds that cannot be inferred through limited (localized), sharp and realistic experimental analysis of biochemistry and neurophysiology, since the variables for the integration of varid phenomena in the brain must also be analyzed.
