Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an outstanding introduction to neuroscience for psychiatry residents and clinicians trained prior to the paradigm shift. I have been using this book for my first-year medical school course, "Brain & Behavior," which helps the integration with neuroanatomy and neurophysiology courses, and the students overwhelmingly have enjoyed the book. The body of knowledge that it attempts to convey should be the minimum requirement for every psychiatrist!"

My master's level introduction to clinical neuroscience course used the first edition of this book as its primary textbook. It is a small, light weigh, concise introduction to clinical neuroscience. The content is engaging and easy to read. This is definitely a textbook you can read cover to cover. There are images on nearly every page, however they are not full color but rather printed in black, white and red. The pages themselves are a glossy material, which makes it difficult to highlight or take notes in the book itself.

The book is divided into four sections
1. Neuroscience model (20% of book)
2. Modulators (20% of book)
3. Behaviors (40% of book)
4. Disorders (20% of book)

The second edition of this book includes three new chapters: (1) inflammation and immunity, (2) the electrical brain, and (3) genetics and epigenetics. If you are debating about whether to purchase this edition or the first edition, I would go ahead and spend the extra money on this one. The chapter on genetics is very useful with the explosion of new research in the field of psychogenomics.

This book only covers the neurobiology four specific psychiatric disorders: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease. Throughout the book, the authors do touch on other disorders but it's not as in depth as the ones mentioned above. If you are interested in a more thorough analysis of the pathophysiology of each disorder, I would check out Neurobiology of Mental Illness.

Finally, the book does cover a great deal of behavioral neuroscience: paint, pleasure, appetite, anger, sleep, sex, attachment, memory, intelligence, and attention.

Why must most experts make such a interesting field into such a dry read? Have no fear of that happening with this textbook. I looked forward to want humorous quips I would find hidden amidst a wealth of important information. Dr. Higgins makes a extremely complex area enjoyable and fairly easy to understand (compared to similar materials).

Superbly written and comprehensive, this book is like attending a series of lectures by a knowledgable and aimiable professor. Touched with humor, the author avoids the ponderous prose that can be so deadening. The series of questions that conclude each chapter add the opportunity to review and relearn the chapter's contents. Through it all, the book is the perfect review or introduction to what it's title claims--the neuroscience of clinical psychiatry

It is hard to say enough good things about this book. It is beautifully written, highly informative, and entertaining to read. It is packed with excellent illustrations. I think it is likely to be enjoyed by any mental health professional, any clinician interested in neuroscience, and is accessible to lay people, as well.
