Summary This is the most comprehensive update of basic and clinical information available on mental, addictive and various neurological disorders. Virtually every basic and clinical scientific methodology that is relevant to our understanding and management of brain-related diseases is included in this volume. Readers will find up-to-the-minute studies in functional brain imaging, including MRI and EEG/ERP mapping, the latest application of molecular biology and genetics to solve clinical problems, as well as recent findings on schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, drug addiction and alcoholism, suicide and mood disorders. A unique feature of this publication are the nine chapters which examine chronic subsyndromal states in mood, anxiety, and neurocognitive disorders, including chronic fatigue syndrome, conditions which plague so many people worldwide. Other more specific sections of the book deal with antiglutamatergic drugs, the modern treatment of social phobia and characteristics of new atypical neuroleptic drugs. Clinicians who wish to practice at the forefront in their field and researchers requiring up-to-date data will find this book a worthwhile addition to their libraries. Students will also find it a useful and comprehensive reference source
