Overview

This is an important book on the role of neurodevelopmental factors in the pathogenesis of the major psychiatric disorders. An international group of experts, including many of those responsible for the ideas that have come to dominate current thinking, reviews the fields of developmental neurobiology, clinical psychiatry, and behavioral neuroscience. The first section, "The Developing Brain", reviews neurodevelopment from the molecular to the behavioral level. Section Two, "Development and Psychopathology", covers clinical applications of the basic principles of developmental neurobiology. The third and final section, "Integrative Models", presents approaches toward a synthesis of neurodevelopmental and clinical findings in psychiatric disorder.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an outstanding new book on the relationship between early developmental brain abnormalities and adult psychopathological states, integrating basic and clinical neurosciences. It is a welcome contribution to the field and will be useful as a reference for researchers and clinicians in psychiatry." Doody's Journal, Michael J. Schrift, DO

"Taken as a whole, the authors collectively make a strong statement for the necessary integration of basic and clinical neurosciences, in understanding the emergence of psychopathology." Ricardo Berjano, MD; Neurological Research

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This exciting new book covers the emerging relationship between abnormalities of central nervous system development and adult psychopathological states. The book is an outgrowth of recent findings in neuroscience relating specific abnormalities noted in the developing fetal brain to risk factors for adult onset schizophrenia. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in this area, this book is a valuable contribution to the field.
Purpose: The purpose of the book, according to the editors, is to present to the reader the rapidly expanding knowledge base in developmental biology, and its consequences for our understanding of major adult psychiatric disorders. The editors have succeeded in producing a readable and comprehensive review of this extremely important research.
Audience: The intended audience, according to the editors, is researchers in the fields of behavioral neuroscience, developmental biology, and biological psychiatry. It would also be informative to clinicians and trainees who want to keep abreast of this important emerging research.
Features: The book features 282 pages divided into three sections and 19 chapters. Section I is a review of normal neural development. Section II covers research findings relevant to adult onset psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, autism, affective disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Section III focuses on integrating various neurodevelopmental models of schizophrenia. Each chapter is referenced with up-to-date citations and there is a useful index at the back of the book.
Assessment: This is an outstanding new book on the relationship between early developmental brain abnormalities and adult psychopathological states, integrating basic and clinical neurosciences. It is a welcome contribution to the field and will be useful as a reference for researchers and clinicians in psychiatry.
