Hi there.
I would be happy to answer more precisely if I know your age… educational level and medical background if any as the answer involves many medical terms…
Also it would be more comfortable to know from you about how this term struck to your minds.
The science you named deals with chemicals in brain function and is least studied… though there is extensive research going on…

To learn this science … only basic medical graduation is enough…
But to be a specialist you need to complete basic medical graduation of around 5 years… then a 2..3 year specialist course in neurology or pdychiatry or pharmacology… from any of these streams you xan opt for n p f.
I hope this answers your question… write back if any further details needed.
