Overview

Today, 25% of Americans smoke and 50% of smokers die from tobacco-related illnesses. Meanwhile, little attention has been given to implementing cessation therapies for our patients who smoke.

Nicotine in Psychiatry: Psychopathology and Emerging Therapeutics examines this timely subject. The book's contributors, subject matter experts in the growing field of nicotine neurobiology andclinical pharmacology, cover the latest knowledge on • The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of nicotine• The effect of nicotinic receptors on the central nervous system (CNS), the recent advances made in understanding the normal function of these receptors, and how this knowledge transfers to the clinical treatment of many CNS disorders• Behavioral factors influencing the effects of nicotine and nicotine's addictive capacity• The association between smoking and specific mental disorders and the association between nicotine and mood• Clinical applications of nicotine as a potential therapeutic agent for a variety of disorders, such as attention deficit, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease, schizophrenia, and Tourette's syndrome• Nicotine replacement therapies and various smoking-cessation strategies

This book makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the recent tobacco public policy debates, as well as clinicians and researchers looking for current information on nicotine and its clinical applications.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella McGuire, MS, RN, CSADC (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is part of the Clinical Practice Series, the aim of which is to support continuing education and enrichment for the practicing clinician.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an up to-date reference for understanding the neurobiology of neuronal nicotinic receptors and the effects of nicotine on various mental health disorders.
Audience: This book is for students in the healthcare field at the graduate level and for practicing clinicians.
Features: Individual chapters have specific, extensive literature references. In regard to appearance, and perhaps I received an odd copy, the content of the book is upside down from the book cover (i.e., the book was bound defectively). When I opened the front book cover, the text was printed upside down and backwards, from back to front — very disorienting!
Assessment: The science described is extensive, but even the editors recognize this difficulty. A disorder without a professional group to claim it will decrease the ability to adequately treat the number of patients who use nicotine. It also does not help that attention to detail was overlooked by the editors.
