Describe the different characteristics of the four agonists

  • Explore the listed agonist spectrum and consider the action and receptor of each:
    • Agonist
    • Partial agonist
    • Antagonist
    • Inverse agonist

You will submit a concept map exploring the four agonists on the agonist spectrum (agonist, partial agonist, antagonist, and inverse agonist) in which you:

  • Describe the different characteristics of the four agonists and how each mediates distinct biological activities. Include proposed mechanisms and the receptor it is targeting.
  • Scavenge the literature after describing each agonist on the spectrum for research that is based on the medications in the table below.
  • Apply the medications to the appropriate agonist on the agonist spectrum in your Concept Map.

Medications

Oxycodone

Brexpiprazole

Haloperidol

Naloxone

Aripiprazole

Amphetamine
