Molecular neuropharmacology involves the study of neurons and agonist, Competitive antagonist and Non-competitive antagonist, receptors on neurons for developing new drugs that will treat neurological disorders of neurodegenerative diseases. Neurogenesis and repair refers to the growth and development of neuron. Neurons never function in isolation; they are organized into ensembles or circuits that process kinds of information which are referred as neuronal circuits. The GABA inhibitory neurotransmitter and serotonin neurotransmitter present in the central nervous system of mature vertebrate interacts with GABA receptor and 5HT receptor respectively. GABAA receptors are modulated by the channel of 5HT receptors through activation of various proteins. There are about 14 5HT receptor subtypes identified from last 20 years which are now researched for their significance in various disorders and treatments. Synaptopathy is a progressively popular term used to define main features of psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. It infers that brain diseases are resulted from disruption of synaptic structure and function.

Psychopharmacology is the learning of the effects of medication on the psyche (psychology), observing changed behaviors and how molecular events are manifest in a measurable behavioral form. Neurogenesis and repair deal with other aspects on the indications for medications prescribed to address psychiatric and behavioral problems. The treatments may cause side effects such as induction of the metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes related to the medications prescribed for management of psychiatric and behavioural disorders and disturbances.

Neural stem cells (NSCs) offer a unique and powerful tool for basic research and regenerative medicine. To date the need to accomplish this has just been met to some degree for neurons got from embryonic undeveloped cells or iPS cells, and still, after all that the information is not of a quality to justify clinical trials.
