Overview

Advances in neurobiological knowledge and neuroimaging technology have contributed greatly to our investigations into the nature of self-awareness.
Beitman and Nair have gathered an impressive array of clinical researchers to not only assess the current neurobiological understanding of self-awareness but also address the major psychiatric disorders of self-awareness. Each of the clinical chapters includes discussions of diagnostic manifestations, neurobiology, and treatment plans, as well as presentations of case vignettes for the disorder under consideration. Self-Awareness Deficits in Psychiatric Patients provides clinicians with the concepts basic to a fully integrated neurobiological concept of human consciousness and the insight that will help them grasp how people with disorders understand themselves from a mind-body perspective.
