From the reviews of the first volume of Disorders of Mind and Brain: 'Most of the neuroscience that is relevant to psychiatrists, or likely to be in the foreseeable future, is here. The book is particularly strong on cognitive neuropsychology but also has many excellent chapters on behavioural pharmacology, neuroimaging and the neurodevelopmental approach to schizophrenia ... This is without doubt the best introduction to neuroscience for psychiatrists.' British Journal of Psychiatry
From the reviews of the first volume of Disorders of Mind and Brain: 'This is an excellent book focusing on various neuropsychiatry topics where brain and mind come together. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, it is an outstanding contribution to psychiatry ... Any clinician or researcher involved and interested in psychopathology-brain relationships should read and refer to it.' Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Notes
'The book illustrates the fascinating tools neuroscience offers for the understanding of brain disorders. It combines a sound introduction of new technologies with applications to clinically relevant questions. This makes it an informative and inspiring read for any scientist and student of neuroscience.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research
Recently there have been major advances in areas of clinical neuroscience, particularly neurogenetics, neuroimaging and the scientific study of consciousness. This book brings together the most important findings since the previous volume was published in 1998. The clinical and scientific scope of these entirely new articles is again wide, encompassing abnormal and normal mind imaging, genes and behaviour, brain development, consciousness, aggression, dementia, affective illness, and drug use and abuse. This book will appeal to anyone who has a clinical or scientific interest in the mind and its disorders.
