Overview

In this authoritative volume you'll find today's most important molecular neurobiological advances and their relevance to clinicians treating patients with mental illness. Molecular Neurobiology for the Clinician, Review of Psychiatry, Volume 22, will update you on the latest findings -- and their impact on psychiatry.

You'll learn about • Discoveries with the potential to revolutionize your clinical approach by changing the ways in which you diagnose and treat patients• The effects on psychiatry of advances in the molecular basis of neuronal network function, particularly in relation to abnormalities in cognitive and emotional regulation, and the identification of novel molecular targets for drug development• How to apply these discoveries to diagnosing and treating major psychiatric disorders, including childhood- and adolescent-onset disorders, schizophrenia, drug addiction, and severe mood and anxiety disorders

Molecular Neurobiology for the Clinician is an outstanding compilation of the best research by top names in the field. Psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric residents, and graduate students in neuroscience, psychiatry, and psychology will gain knowledge, understanding, and techniques for better diagnosis and treatment.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent introductory book covering recent developments in molecular neurobiology that is relevant for the practicing clinician. Written and edited by an outstanding team of researchers in the field, this book is a valuable contribution to the contemporary practice of psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editor, is to provide a book outlining and integrating the recent research in neurobiology of the disorders that psychiatrists see every day. Dr. Charney, the editor, points out that future editions of the DSM must take into account the advances in understanding of the pathophysiology of major neuropsychiatric conditions. 21st century psychiatrists must have knowledge of these advances. The editor and authors have produced an accessible and readable book.
Audience: The intended audience is practicing psychiatrists and psychologists, but it would also be useful for trainees in psychiatry and neurology.
Features: Chapter 1 reviews the molecular neurobiology of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders. Chapter 2 is an excellent overview of molecular genetics and the role of molecular genetics in diagnosis and treatment. Chapter 3 discusses the neurobiology of schizophrenia. Chapter 4 covers the molecular mechanisms involved in drug addiction and the role of second messenger systems. The final chapter details the cellular mechanisms involved in mood and anxiety disorders. At the end of each chapter there are relevant and up-to-date references. The index is also quite helpful.
Assessment: This is a valuable book on the molecular neurobiology of psychiatric disorders. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in understanding psychiatric disorders.

    A must read for psychiatrists & neuroscientists

    The information presented here can quickly bring practicing psychiatrists up-to-date on the most recent developements in molecular neurobiology that are having a tremendous impact on the development of novel medications. Likewise, the chapters showcases for preclinical neuroscientists how basic research can translate to the treatment, diagnosis, and understanding of the pathophysiology of severe mental illnesses. The text covers an impressive array of topics. Highly recommended.
