9780393703986: Neuroanatomy for Students of Behavioral Disorders

Whether you’re a practicing mental health clinician, a post-doc psychologist, a psychiatric resident, or in any number of allied fields, you can’t get away without knowing something about the brain and how it works. For the first time, two psychiatric experts offer an eminently readable, color-illustrated text that boils down the complexities of neuroscience to focus only on the parts of the brain specifically related to behavioral disorders. Authors Green and Ostrander, provide concise chapter summaries and vignettes and a handy, quick-review appendix that lists brain structures and regions affiliated with behavior for easy consultation. Nearly 200 color illustrations, brain scans, and diagrams depict the nuances of brain-behavior anatomy and function.

Robyn Ostrander, MD, is a practicing psychiatrist and Lecturer in Psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School. She lives in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Review:

“The authors take readers by the hand and guides them through the complexities of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology with admirable clarity, compassion for patients, and lucid illustrations. The book is a must for students learning about psychopathology, and it will be a handy reference for clinicians who seek a greater understanding of the brain correlates of major mental illnesses. I heartily recommend it.”
- Glen O. Gabbard, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine

“The exploding field of the neurobiology of behavioral disorders has caught many students and practitioners in the mental health professions off guard. It has become a field in its own right and as such it needs the appropriate text. Green and Ostrander have provided just such a text, and an excellent summary of the links between brain and behavior. All students interested in behavioral medicine should master this material as they learn about the disorders of behavior and how to treat them.”
- Michael S. Gazzaniga, PhD, Director, Sage Center for the Study of the Mind, UCLA, Santa Barbara

“This text is a labor of love. It soars above the mundane to thoughtfully engage a challenge previously avoided: The distillation of fact from fantasy in the neurobiology of behavioral disorders. Comprehensive, appropriately detailed, and well referenced, this book is a must-read for students of all disciplines who seriously aspire to understanding aberrant behavior in the context of the burgeoning brain sciences.”
- Peter C Whybrow, MD, Director of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and Judson Braun, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Science at UCLA

“[C]an benefit anyone in the behavioral field because it provides a lot of information about the links between brain and behavior....I was gladly surprised to see the many colored diagrams, such as the one of the various subdivisions of the thalamus...these diagrams make difficult topics easier to understand....I really recommend this book.”
- Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

Book Description WW Norton Co, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Research proves that the inner workings of the brain, its structures, and its functions are directly related to psychiatric disorders, and psychiatrists are increasingly called upon to have knowledge of behavioral neuroanatomy in order to offer the most effective treatment for their patients. However, brain regions specifically affiliated with behavior are not adequately addressed in psychiatric training. This book, a four-color visual tour of brain anatomy for psychiatric residents and practitioners, fills that gap by focusing on a range of psychiatric conditions and exploring the corresponding parts of the brain that are affected. Green and Ostrander take readers on a systematic tour of all brain regions with important behavioral affiliations or with known or theoretical involvement in psychiatric disorders, including over 190 four-color images to help readers conceptualize the relationship between brain regions and specific disorders. Psychiatrists-in-training, practicing psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals interested in the neurological bases of illness will all find this book useful.
