First published over two decades ago as the only multi-authored, comprehensive textbook in the field, the Fifth Edition of this tremendously successful volume expands its focus on the neurosciences to encompass the great strides we've made in the basic sciences and their integration into clinical practice. Since the publication of the Fourth Edition of this Textbook six years ago, we have continued to witness explosive growth in our knowledge base in structural and functional brain imaging, electrophysiology and electrodiagnosis, cellular and molecular biology, genetics, and neuropsychopharmacology -- to name just a few. To convey this intensified focus in neurosciences and to acknowledge the recognition by the American Neuropsychiatric Association and by the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties of new subspecialty status in neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology, the editors have added "Behavioral Neurosciences" to the title of this seminal work, while increasing its already impressive clinical utility and practicality. Among the many highlights of the Fifth Edition are: • An extensively updated chapter on the cellular and molecular biology of the neuron• An expanded chapter on the epidemiology and genetics of neuropsychiatric disorders• An extensively revised and expanded chapter on the neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium• A comprehensive revision and expansion of the chapter on clinical and functional neuroimaging

In compiling this informative and enjoyable compendium, the editors have crafted each chapter as a complete stand-alone entity, so that clinicians can easily apply the content to the day to day challenges of their practices. In this volume's five main sections, you'll find basic principles of neuroscience (cellular and molecular biology of the neuron; functional neuroanatomy; and nervous, endocrine, and immune system interactions), assessment (bedside neuropsychiatry, electrodiagnostic techniques, neuropsychological evaluation, and clinical and functional brain imaging), symptomatologies (delirium, aphasia, aggression and impulse control disorders, and memory dysfunctions and amnesia), neuropsychiatric disorders (traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders, sleep disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, brain tumors, human immunodeficiency and viral disorders, endocrine disorders, poisons and toxins, alcoholism and other chemical dependencies, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, schizophrenia, mood and affective disorders, and anxiety disorders) and neuropsychiatric treatments (intracellular and intercellular principles; pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and cognitive-behavior therapy).

With a remarkable 82 contributors, 29 of whom are new to this Edition -- all recognized experts -- this comprehensive text is clinically relevant and eminently practical for medical students and residents, psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists and neuropsychologists, and a broad range of professionals who work in many different clinical settings (e.g., the general hospital setting, physical medicine/rehabilitation hospitals, psychiatric institutes, community mental health centers, alcohol and chemical dependency programs, and outpatient services and doctors' offices). Additionally, this Edition has added many tables and clinical summaries designed to be helpful for students and professionals at all levels in studying for certification and recertification examinations in psychiatry, neurology and the behavioral neurosciences.

The accompanying CD in PowerPoint presentation format contains a wealth of material to enhance classroom presentation, study, and clinical use. It includes all 170 tables and all 250 figures, many in color, with their explanatory legends, easy to access and organized chapter by chapter with context provided -- plus, Highlights for the Clinician summarizing the key clinical points for each chapter; locator menus; useful links; and a topic outline.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This textbook, now in its fifth edition, is the touchstone for American neuropsychiatry. It is representative of the enormous shift that has occurred in psychiatry since the 1980s with the deeper understanding of brain and brain function (hence cognitive neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary psychology) as the basic framework for the understanding of behavior, both normal and abnormal. As I commented in the review of the fourth edition, this book continues to improve with each edition. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, it remains a most valuable contribution to psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive, critical, up-to-date, and clinically useful overview of basic and clinical neuropsychiatry. The editors and authors have succeeded in producing a superb textbook.
Audience: The intended audience includes medical students, residents, psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, and neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology fellows.
Features: This edition has fewer sections than the fourth (five rather than six) and fewer chapters as well (33 instead of 39). Areas covered include basic neuroscience, neuropsychiatric assessment with chapters on clinical, brain imaging, and genetics. Other sections cover neuropsychiatric symptoms, syndromes, and treatments. Missing is the chapter on ethical and legal issues as well as certification education in neuropsychiatry. This is unfortunate, particularly with the enormous ethical issues that have surfaced with the developments in cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging and with the emergence of the field of neuroethics. Each chapter contains relevant and up-to-date references and there is a useful index.
Assessment: This textbook continues to be an extremely valuable contribution to psychiatry and neurology. It is must reading for individuals preparing for the neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology board certification. It is required reading for all those who call themselves neuropsychiatrists or behavioral neurologists. Any clinician or researcher with an interest in the brain and behavior should read and refer to this book.
