Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the exceptional developments in clinical research in the last quarter of the twentieth century has been the emergence of the domain of clinical neuroscience out of the confluence of efforts by neuropsychology, psychiatry, neurology, neuroradiology, and neurophysiology. This recent work on alcohol and the brian exemplifies this new direction; and this book lends articulate expression to this new synthetic effort. Comprehensive reviews of of the component neuroscientific disciplines are juxtaposed to thought provoking discussions which challenge the reader to think in terms of new directions for better syntheses. This compendium represents a fine reference work for anyone interested in alcohol and the brain." —Igor Grant, MD, University of California

"The psychological and neurological consequences are comprehensively examined. Most importantly, this compendium underscores the integral role of neurobehavioral processes for alcoholism rehabilitation. I highly recommend this book to neuroscience researchers and practitioners involved in all areas of substance abuse. It is a thorough, up-to-date, and expertly edited volume that will undoubtedly be the standard text in the field for some time to come." —Ralph E. Tarter, PhD, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
