ABSTRACT: The modern era of psychopharmacology began in the 10 year period from the late 1940s to the late 1950s. During this period, the first antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics and mood stabilizers were all discovered. In the 1960s, the pharmacology of these drugs was elucidated and theories about the mechanisms of action proposed. In the 1970s and 1980s, new, more selective compounds were developed based on improved structure–activity relationships derived from in vitro receptor binding studies and animal models. These compounds entered clinical testing in the 1980s and began to be marketed in the late 1980s and 1990s.Journal of Psychopharmacology 08/2006; 20(4 Suppl):85-94.
