The research area neuropsychopharmacology investigates the effects of anti-psychotic, anti-depressant, anti-dementia, and anti-epileptic drugs on the complex central rhythmicity of our central nervous system. The combination of clinico-neurophysiological research and animal experimental investigations allows an understanding of the communication between different areas of the brain in the central processing of information and indicates which "communication difficulties" can occur between these areas as a result of neuropsychiatric illnesses. In this manner, both desired and undesired effects of neuropsychopharmacological agents can be investigated and embedded in new therapeutic concepts.
