    DescriptionIt is often difficult to blend the knowledge from scientific research with the experience of clinical practice. This book does exactly that. By incorporating recent advances in biological sciences with the concept of aetiology and treatment of eating disorders, the editors have successfully produced an authoritative, state-of-the-art text. The internationally renowned authors suggest ways of integrating the latest findings within a treatment setting. Topics covered include: Phenomenology Measurement of Psychopathology Stress, Neurobiology and Eating Eating Behaviour and Weight Control Emotional States and Bulimic Psychopathology Neuroimaging Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder Pharmacotherapy Nutritional Management Medical Complications. This book will be of value to all psychiatrists, psychologists, psychopharmacologists and clinical neuroscientists. From pre-publication reviews: "This book provides a masterly synthesis of the basic and the clinical, in a form that should prove useful to both practicing clinicians and researchers in the field. I know of no other book of comparable scope that has attempted so successfully this integration." James E. Mitchell Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurosciences, UND, Fargo, USA "Neurobiology in the Treatment of Eating Disorders is a major achievement and I predict that it will become an instant classic." Ruth Striegel-Moore Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Wesleyan University, CT, USA "A significant addition to the literature on eating disorders. This book is notable for its depth and breadth, the emphasis on neurobiology being particularly distinctive and welcome. It deserves to be widely read." Christopher Fairburn Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford UK "I found this book absolutely outstanding and was very pleased to read it. This invaluable and authoritative overview represents an outstanding reference for the study of the three major disorders of eating behaviour. This book represents an extraordinary background for future developments of neurobiological and genetic investigations, clinical applications, epidemiological studies; therapeutic approaches and prevention programs." Francesca Brambilla Professor, Department of Neuropsychiatric Sciences, H. S. Raffaele, Milan, Italy
