Overview

The Third Edition of Neurobiology of Mental Illness provides a comprehensive and timely progress report on the neurobiologic foundations of psychiatry. The book begins with concise overviews of basic neuroscience and the methods used to study neuroscientific endpoints in human patients and then proceeds with discussions of all major psychiatric syndromes with respect to knowledge of the etiology, pathophysiology, and treatment. Emphasis is given to synthesizing information across numerous levels of analysis, including molecular biology and genetics, cellular physiology, neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, and behavior, and in translating information from the basic laboratory to the clinical laboratory and finally to clinical treatment.
