Anyone know how medications (Antidepressents/Antipsychotics) are made?

I know its all about chemistry/Molecules etc But do they have any natural underpinnings? Are they derived from any natural substance..Like St Johns Wart comes from a flower. Are Synthetic medications the same? Also how are they tested? How do they know a certain medication reaches a certain receptor? Are they displays on a monitor that show animal brains lighting up? I know these might sound like stupid questions but the geek in me has always wondered this and found very little online..Hoping someone who knows can break it down into simplistic terms...Cheers
