Overview

Memory complaints are a frequent feature of psychiatric disorder even in the absence of organic disease. In this practical reference, German Berrios and John Hodges lead an international team of eminent clinicians to focus on the psychiatric and organic aspects of memory disorders from the perspective of the multidisciplinary memory clinic. The disorders discussed include the dementias, amnesic syndrome and transient amnesic states, and the psychiatric aspects of memory disorders in the functional psychoses. Throwing new light on established conditions and introducing two new syndromes, this book is a major contribution to the clinical management of memory disorders in psychiatry, neuropsychology, and other disciplines.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The editors of this outstanding book provide coverage of the psychiatric approach to disorders of memory. Edited and authored by internationally recognized researcher-clinicians, this book is an exceptionally valuable contribution to the field.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to restore the study of memory disorders into a psychopathological framework. They note that historically phenomena such as deja vu, confabulation, and paramnesias were considered memory disorders, but when no so-called "organic" basis could be found, these fascinating phenomena were no longer considered true memory disorders. The editors hope to rectify this unbalanced view by developing a book in which both "organic" and "functional" memory disorders are covered with a modern neuropsychiatric perspective. They have succeeded in their goal!
Audience: The intended audience is clinicians, including psychiatrists, behavioral neurologists, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and neurologists. This book should be mandatory reading for residents in geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology training programs.
Features: The textbook is divided into three parts and 23 chapters, including a notes and index section. Part I is an overview of memory functions with chapters on historical aspects of memory and its disorders, mood and memory, metamemory, neuropsychology and psychopharmacology of memory. Part II is a review of the more traditional memory impairments seen in the dementias, amnesic syndrome, and transient global and transient epileptic amnesia. Insight is also given into memory deficits, depressive pseudodementia, and memory in psychotic disorders. In Part III such interesting items as confabulation, the Ganser syndrome, paramnesia and delusions of memory, and false/recovered memory are covered. Each chapter ends with up-to-date and useful references. The book ends with a useful index and note section.
Assessment: This is an extremely valuable book on memory disorders in neuropsychiatry. Clinicians and researchers as well as trainees will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book.
