Overview

Behavior and Mood Disorders in Focal Brain Lesions takes a unique approach to presenting the emotional and behavioral consequences of focal lesions affecting the brain to summarize the current state of research and provide a basis for improved patient care. This is the first clinical reference work to specifically address the relationship of focal brain dysfunction to behavioral and emotional disorders, providing the most comprehensive account available of these manifestations of brain lesions including stroke, trauma, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and even neurosurgery. A worldwide team of neuroscientists and clinicians examines the links between regional brain dysfunction and disorders of mood, thought and affect processing, and behavior. Chapters are devoted to methodological issues, lesions of specific sites, such as the frontal lobes, basal ganglia, and thalamus, and symptoms such as mood disorder, violent behavior, and anosognosia.
