This book has been written in the hope that our experience will be of value to others facing problems for developing suitable practical courses. We hope that, this collection of experiments will be of real value to teachers and students of pharmacy profession. We also hope that they will adapt, modify and extend them so that practical classes in pharmacology may be really useful and stimulating experience for students. If this book helps to provide the reader with a clear understanding of the basic concepts of experimental pharmacology, then we would consider our object as fulfilled.
