About the Authors
  • The scientific study of mental disorder is exciting today because of discoveries in molecular genetics, cognitive processes, neurochemistry and neuroanatomy. The study of mental disorder has evolved from a primarily descriptive discipline into a mature science that encompasses both biological underpinnings and social and developmental work. Psychopathology combines these fields of research to present a comprehensive picture of psychosis. In this important volume, distinguished investigators from these fields present findings from their laboratories, as well as perspectives on areas of rapid growth and change. The editors also provide thoughtful overviews of four major topics in psychopathology research: brain mechanisms, thinking, development and genetics. This book will appeal to graduate students, clinicians and researchers in the fields of psychiatry, cognitive science and neuroscience.

    • Topic of major social and public health importance
    • Approachable survey of the most important topics in the field
    • All-star cast of authors

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a very useful, up-to-date treatment of psychopathological research … It has heightened my appreciation of progress achieved to date, of the outstanding problems remaining, and of the importance of a multileveled approach to the study of mental disorder. This book would be particulary suitable for psychiatry trainees and for researchers.' Bryan Mowry, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry
