Overview

In recent years there have been major advances in areas of clinical neuroscience including neurogenetics, neuroimaging and the scientific study of consciousness. Disorders of Brain and Mind II brings together the most important findings since the previous volume was published in 1998. Imaging of the normal and abnormal mind figures prominently, and there is coverage of genes and behavior, brain development, consciousness and aggression. New disease-oriented chapters detail recent advances in dementia, affective illness and drug use and abuse. Clinical chapters are paired with those describing neuropathology or experimental models of disease.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Michael J. Schrift
This is an excellent book focusing on various neuropsychiatry topics where brain and mind come together. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, it is an outstanding contribution to psychiatry. The purpose, according to the editors, ""was to gather salient examples"" of areas in neuropsychiatry that address the interface between the mind and the brain. It is dedicated to Professor Alwyn Lishman, who has been influential in the re-emergence of neuropsychiatry in the last two decades. The editors and contributors have succeeded in providing an interesting and excellent book. The intended audience is psychiatrists, psychologists, and neurologists. It would also be valuable for trainees in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, and neurology. The book features seven sections and 14 chapters. Topics covered include: the frontal lobes; basal ganglia; memory; psychopathology and the brain; epilepsy; the neurodevelopmental hypothesis of schizophrenia; and brain imaging of psychopathology. There is an up-to-date reference section at the end of each chapter and a useful index at the back of the book. This is a valuable and outstanding text covering various mind/brain disorders. Any clinician or researcher involved and interested in psychopathology-brain relationships should read and refer to it.
