Computer-Assisted Education System for Psychopharmacology.
McDougall, William Donald
An approach to the use of computer assisted instruction (CAI) for teaching psychopharmacology is presented. A project is described in which, using the TUTOR programing language on the PLATO IV computer system, several computer programs were developed to demonstrate the concepts of aminergic transmitters in the central nervous system. Response characteristics of a simulated patient treated with psychopharmacological drugs are discussed, together with some of the advantages and disadvantages of TUTOR for such teaching situations. A flow chart of a computer lesson in this field is also provided, and alternative methods of presenting a problem are considered. (DGC)
