9781585620043: American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, Fourth Edition (American Psychiatric Press Textbook/ Neuropsychiatry)

During the past decade, we have witnessed explosive growth in the neurosciences: structural and functional brain imaging, electrophysiology and electrodiagnosis, cell and molecular biology, genetics, and neuropsychopharmacologyAto name just a few. First published 15 years ago as the only multiauthored, comprehensive textbook in the field, the fourth edition of this tremendously successful volume expands its focus on the neurosciences to encompass the great strides weAve made in the basic and clinical sciences. To convey this intensified focus, the editors have added AAand Clinical NeurosciencesA to the title of this seminal work, increasing its already impressive clinical utility and practicality by -Featuring an expanded chapter on the epidemiology and genetics of neuropsychiatric disorders. -Incorporating the significant advances in the data base and conceptualizations related to clinical neuropsychiatry into an extensively revised and expanded chapter on the neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium. -Adding an ambitious new section that reflects the clinical growth in knowledge about and clinical relevance of drug-induced delirium and encephalopathies other than delirium. -Including a timely new chapter on educational and certification issues in neuropsychiatry for anyone considering subspecialization in neuropsychiatry, reflecting the recent mainstreaming of neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology subspecialties in their respective clinical disciplinesAand the increasing influence of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA), which not only provides vibrant support for students, clinicians, and researchers, but also defines the requisite knowledge base and educational experience for this exciting discipline. In compiling this informative and enjoyable compendium, the editors have crafted each chapter as a complete stand-alone entity, necessitating some intentional overlap among chapters. In this volumeAs six main sections, youAll find basic principles of neuropsychiatry (cellular biology and human electrophysiology; functional neuroanatomy; nervous, endocrine, and immune system interactions), assessment (bedside and electrodiagnoses, clinical and functional imaging, epidemiology and genetics), symptomatologies (pain management, attention disorders, delirium, aphasia, impulsivity, amnesia), disorders (traumatic brain injury and brain tumors, sleep disorders, human immunodeficiency, poisons and toxins, chemical dependencies, dementia, schizophrenia, mood and affective disorders, and disorders of childhood and adolescence), treatments (pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, cognitive-behavior therapy), and special topics (ethical/legal and educational/certification issues, anxiety disorders). With a remarkable 85 contributorsAall recognized expertsAthis comprehensive text is clinically relevant and eminently practical for medical students and residents, psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists and neuropsychologists, and a broad range of professionals who work in many different clinical settings (e.g., the general hospital setting, physical medicine/rehabilitation hospitals, psychiatric institutes, community mental health centers, alcohol and chemical dependency programs, and outpatient services and doctorsA offices).
