9780878939794: Looking Inside the Disordered Brain

What are the brain circuits that not only keep us alive but also allow us to thrive in our complex world, and how do even subtle disturbances within these circuits lead to abnormal behavior? Using a combination of research strategies--including neuroimaging (particularly fMRI) and abnormal and clinical psychology--this textbook addresses these timely and important questions for students of the biological, clinical, and social sciences as well as interested students from fields within the humanities, such as philosophy.

Looking Inside the Disordered Brain provides students with a working knowledge of our rapidly evolving understanding of the foundational brain circuits supporting human social, emotional, and cognitive behavior, and describes how disruptions within these circuits are associated with symptoms of common psychiatric disorders. It first establishes how specific anatomical circuits process signals we receive from our ever-changing internal and external environments to create order in our behavior. It then looks inside the disordered brain and maps specific symptoms onto dysfunction within these circuits.

The book features three neuroanatomical circuits (corticolimbic; corticostriatal; corticohippocampal) and their principal behavioral correlates (recognition and reaction; motivation and action; memory and executive control), as well as the pathological expression of dysfunction within each circuit (including depression, anxiety, phobia, mania, addiction, aggression, and disintegration of thought).

Ahmad R. Hariri emphasizes the dimensional nature of psychopathology by mapping specific symptoms within a broad diagnostic category onto disorder of the circuitry under review. For example, in major depressive disorder the symptoms of anxiety are mapped onto corticolimbic circuit dysfunction, the symptoms of anhedonia onto corticostriatal circuit dysfunction, and the symptoms of emotion dysregulation onto corticohippocampal circuit dysfunction. This is an effective strategy for introducing students to the limitations of categorical/diagnostic classifications (e.g., DSM-5) and highlighting the importance of considering behavior on a continuum from normal to abnormal.

About the Author:


Ahmad R. Hariri is Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University, where he is also Director of the Laboratory of NeuroGenetics. After completing his B.S. and M.S. in evolutionary biology at the University of Maryland, Dr. Hariri completed his doctorate through the UCLA Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program for Neuroscience with Dr. Susan Bookheimer. He next completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Mental Health with Dr. Daniel Weinberger. From 2003-2009, he was first Assistant and then Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. In 2009, Dr. Hariri received the Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology. He was also named a Highly Cited Researcher by Thomson Reuters, identifying him as 1 of only 129 investigators whose research is amongst the top 1% most cited in the field of Neuroscience and Behavior.

Review:


"Judging by this book, one would expect Ahmad R. Hariri to be an effective and popular teacher. He conveys complex ideas succinctly and clearly in an engagingly informal way, and he integrates old ideas and new information in an approach that is seamless and thought-provoking. Looking Inside the Disordered Brain is an engaging and attractively presented package. The book is highly recommended to students on related courses and well worth a look for those seeking to update their functional neuroanatomy knowledge or to move beyond an introductory understanding of the biological underpinnings of psychopathology."
tephen Mullin, PsycCRITIQUES


"This text is beautifully organized, very clearly written, and has wonderful graphics. I bet it is bought as much by faculty as it is by students."
--Stephen Manuck, University of Pittsburgh
