About the Authors
  • Great advances have been made in recent years towards a better understanding of the healthy brain and the physical basis of psychiatric disorder. This text brings together contributions from leading international authorities to provide a timely and multidisciplinary overview of this fast developing area. Its broad coverage ranges from epilepsy and schizophrenia to basal ganglia disorder and brain lesions. In many cases, a clinically oriented chapter is paired with one which describes the basic science which underpins it and considerable attention is given to the impact of the new technologies - structural and functional neuroimaging. In highlighting the basic pathophysiological mechanisms of multifaceted clinical manifestations, this book serves as a valuable review of current neuropsychiatry. It will be welcomed by clinicians, researchers and students alike from neuroscience through to neuropsychology and psychiatry.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is an excellent book focusing on various neuropsychiatry topics where brain and mind come together. Written and edited by internationally recognised experts in the field, it is an outstanding contribution to psychiatry … Any clinician or researcher involved and interested in psychopathology-brain relationships should read and refer to it.' Doody's Notes

    'Most of the neuroscience that is relevant to psychiatrists, or likely to be in the foreseeable future, is here. The book is particularly strong on cognitive neuropsychology but also has many excellent chapters on behavioural pharmacology, neuroimaging and the neurodevelopmental approach to schizophrenia. … This is without doubt the best introduction to neuroscience for psychiatrists. Not only that, it is attractively presented, rests pleasingly in the hand and is printed on high-quality paper that even smells rather plesant. Get your librarian to order a copy and read it before anyone else does! Better still, buy your own copy.' Stephen M. Lawrie, British Journal of Psychiatry

    'The editors have assembled an impressive international cast who cover most of the hot topics at the interface of neurology nad psychiatry. I can thoroughly recommend it to everyone working in this exciting area.' John Hodges, Journal of Neurology , Neurosurgery and Psychiatry
