These are described separately as a background to discussion of drug-receptor activity and as context for the description of the quantitative tools and methods used in receptor pharmacology to quantify drug effect. 3 The Use of Mathematical Models in Pharmacology Mathematical models are the link between what is observed experimentally and what is thought to occur at the molecular level. , a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum directly reflects the interaction of hydrogen atoms on a molecule). In pharmacology the observations are much more indirect, leaving a much wider gap between the physical chemistry involved in drugreceptor interaction and what the cell does in response to those interactions (through the ‘‘cellular veil’’).
