This book is a must for the library of every medical school, basic medical science facility, and psychiatric hospital, useful for students, teachers, and practitioners.
A Textbook of Biological Psychiatry integrates the basic science concerning brain mechanisms of psychiatric disorders alongside surveys of present standard clinical treatment. Organized in a coherent and easy to follow structure, chapters expand across different levels of analysis, from basic mechanisms to clinical practice. This comprehensive reference provides an integrative treatment of the biochemistry of neurotransmission, behavioral pharmacology, and clinical aspects of psychiatric problems including depression, manic-depression, and mood disorders. Other chapters address the biological mechanisms and treatment of depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and addictions. The editor concludes with a perspective on the future of the field and prospects for understanding and effectively treating mood and anxiety disorders.
Not until the publication of the Textbook of Biological Psychiatry has the science of psychiatric disorders and clinical practice been seamlessly integrated in a modern text.
In this landmark volume, editor Jaak Panksepp assembles the perspectives of top scientists and clinicians who apply contemporary neuroscience to psychiatric issues. In each chapter, the book draws on a range of cutting-edge research areas-such as the biochemistry of neurotransmission, behavioral pharmacology, and the clinical aspects of psychiatric problems-to give you the most informed, practical overview of biological psychiatry available.
Featuring a cohesive, three-part organization, the Textbook of Biological Psychiatry begins with an incisive look at core concepts, from the role of stress, sleep, and sexuality in psychiatric disorders to the use of neuroimaging in psychiatry.
The Textbook then considers the biological mechanisms and treatment of those disorders that pose major psychiatric challenges, including:
* Posttraumatic stress disorder
* Panic disorders
* Obsessive-Compulsive disorder
* Childhood neuropsychiatric disorders
* Alzheimer’s disease
Just as it distinguishes itself through a one-of-a-kind clinical approach to psychiatry, the Textbook of Biological Psychiatry also offers a unique outlook on the future of the field. Compiled here are the latest, forward-thinking insights in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, somatic treatments, sociophysiology, and more.
Taken together, the Textbook of Biological Psychiatry is more than the only new psychopharmacology reference that integrates the study of the human mind and brain with psychiatric clinical practice. It is an essential, accessible collection of insights from the field’s preeminent researchers-one that covers the full arc of the discipline: past, present, and future.
