Lisa C. Routh, M.D., is a neuropsychiatrist with special training in neurology, general psychiatry, child psychiatry, and functional brain imaging. She lives in Houston, Texas.
An articulate psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher uses brain imaging to group anxiety and depressive disorders into seven clusters, all which "light up" specific parts of the brain when certain conditions or patient mind-states are created. The dry nature of this material is offset by the authors' compassion for their patients and the effort they have put into making their findings useful. With familiar case vignettes, they describe how patients respond to traditional therapy and medication, as well as to a host of alternatives, such as herbs, nutrients, and various other interventions. A well-done audio and an important starting point for lives that are less than they could be because of chronic depression, mood instability, and anxiety.
