Back cover copy

There is a great need for a single book that covers the main aspects of neurological and psychiatric disorders in sufficient breadth and depth to enable MDs, PhDs, and PharmDs to master their exams and prepare to safely and effectively practice their future health care professions. In Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders: From Bench to Bedside, leading researchers and practicing clinicians team up to provide a comprehensive, systematic, and advanced review of the scientific, preclinical, and clinical aspects of several major mental illnesses. The illnesses covered range from neurological disorders including Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, and Parkinson's disease, to psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorders, Tourette's syndrome and tic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, unipolar depression, bipolar disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. For each disorder, the authors uniformly discuss its incidence and prevalence, etiology and general description, molecular targets and mechanisms of action, brain structures and pathways, animal models, signs and symptoms, genetics, standard and experimental treatments, and related medical terminology. Introductory chapters explain the neural and pharmacotherapeutic principles underlying these disorders, as well as the theoretical and methodological parameters needed to optimally interpret the neuroanatomical, imaging, pharmacodynamic, and pharmacokinetic data presented throughout the book. Authoritative and up to date, Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders: From Bench to Bedside offers neurologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, and health care professionals in this area a comprehensive, systematic, and advanced understanding of preclinical research, clinical diagnosis, and standard and novel treatments for major neurological and psychiatric disorders.show more
