An introduction to Neuroimaging and Neurophysiology in Psychiatry, this book explains the basic physics and physiology behind the main techniques of neuroimaging, including MRI and PET, and non-invasive neurophysiology.
This title covers all the clinically relevant aspects of neuroimaging and neurophysiology methods. It includes individual chapters on techniques, diagnostic disease markers, and neurophysiological treatments to ensure psychiatrists are familiar with the clinical relevance of reported abnormalities.
With the latest research, Neuroimaging and Neurophysiology in Psychiatry is an invaluable and easy-to-read reference that will help practising psychiatrists in the evaluation of the use of neuroimaging methods in clinical, research, and forensic settings.
