9780521650441: Functional Neuroimaging in Child Psychiatry

This book reviews the recent rapid development of functional neuroimaging techniques and their implications for child psychiatry. It is unique in that it focuses on children and integrates brain mapping with genetics and behavioral testing, an interface that is likely to become fundamental to functional neuroimaging. This invaluable reference will help clinicians and investigators to:

  • Understand the mechanisms of childhood psychiatric disorders through imaging
  • Decide the most appropriate technique for their purposes with respect to technology, experimental design, data analysis, and ethical considerations
  • Appreciate the role of molecular genetics and neuropsychology in planning brain imaging studies. Set against an overview of normal behavioral and cognitive development, the text includes a description of new brain imaging strategies and the application of imaging techniques used on adults to children. Linking the latest findings from neuroimaging to neurophysiological models, this book is an essential resource for researchers and clinicians concerned with neurodevelopmental disorders.
