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.
