Behavioral Pharmacology: Making Sense Out of Meds

Tuesday, August 5, 2014 -
1:15pm to 4:15pm

It has been reported that almost half of children and adolescents diagnosed with ASD have been prescribed psychotropic medication. Thus, it is imperative that consumers are familiar with how medications work, their desired effects, and their side effects. The presentation will therefore focus on some fundamental facts about medications, including how they are administered, tolerance, and medication half-life. Moreover, I will discuss some of the behavioral functions of medications that might have clinical significance.
