Psychopathology: The Evolving Science of Mental Disorderby Steven Matthysse
Pub. Date: 10/28/2006
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
From psychopathology's beginnings at a descriptive level--cataloging signs and symptoms--it has become a vigorous, mature, experimental field, making strides in both biological and psychological understanding. In this important volume, scholars review new data and provide recommendations for future research. Their collected work, celebrating the career of Professor Philip Holzman, is an up-to-date account of progress and discussion of major problems in psychopathology. This book covers neuroanatomical, developmental, cognitive and genetic research and theory as they relate to schizophrenia and other psychoses.
