Revue de presse
'This superb book is the most complete and comprehensive publication on this subject to date. It is essential reading for all who call themselves behavioral neurologists or neuropsychiatrists. It is also an essential reference for the care of patients who suffer from neuropsychiatric disorders.' Doody's Reviews
'This book is likely to become the standard textbook for programs offering subspecialty training in behavioural neurology and neuropsychiatry. I consider it to be an excellent volume and would strongly recommend it to psychiatrists with subspecialty interest in the interface between neurology and psychiatry.' The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry
Présentation de l'éditeur
The merger of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry into a single medical subspecialty, Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry, requires an understanding of brain-behavior relationships and a clinical approach that transcends the traditional perspectives of neurology and psychiatry. Designed as a primer of concepts and principles, and authored by a multidisciplinary group of internationally known clinical neuroscientists, this book divides into three sections: • Structural and Functional Neuroanatomy (Section I) addresses the neuroanatomy and phenomenology of cognition, emotion, and behavior • Clinical Assessment (Section II) describes neuropsychiatric history taking, neurological and mental status examinations, neuropsychological assessment, and neuroimaging, electrophysiologic, and laboratory methods • Treatment (Section III) discusses environmental, behavioral, rehabilitative, psychological, social, pharmacological, and procedural interventions for cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disorders. By emphasizing the principles of Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry, this book will improve your understanding of brain-behavior relationships and inform your care of patients and families affected by neurobehavioral disorders.
