Abstract

This invaluable, peerless book examines the explosion of knowledge in neuropsychiatry. The chapter authors, world-renowned experts in their fields, do a striking job of presenting complex material in an easy to understand and remember fashion. Section 1, on the basic principles of neuroscience, begins by recognizing the neurodevelopmental aberrations that cause many neuropsychiatric disorders. As understanding of the neuron increases, these disorders will soon be pre- ventable. The chapter on electrophysiology touts the study of sleep and psychiatric disorders as rich areas for future fruitful investigations. This section also contains a great deal of up-to-date information about central nervous system receptors and substantive data on which parts of the brain are responsible for behavioral, emotional, and cognitive functions. The second section contains worth-while information on examining neuropsychiatric patients, electrodiagnostic techniques, and neuropsychological tests. A new chapter on clinical imagining is extremely informative about new techniques and contains computed tomographic
