First published over two decades ago as the only multiauthored, comprehensive textbook in the field, the Fifth Edition of this tremendously successful volume expands its focus on the neurosciences to encompass the great strides we've made and their integration into clinical practice. To convey this intensified focus and to acknowledge the recognition by the American Neuropsychiatric Association and the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties of new subspecialty status in neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology, the editors have added Behavioral Neurosciences to the title. New and expanded chapters cover topics such as the cellular and molecular biology of the neuron, the epidemiology and genetics of neuropsychiatric disorders, neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium, and clinical and functional neuroimaging. In compiling this informative and enjoyable compendium, the editors have crafted each chapter as a complete stand-alone entity, so that clinicians can easily apply the content to the day-to-day challenges of their practices. With a remarkable 82 contributors, 29 of whom are new to this Edition all recognized experts this 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 doctors' offices). The accompanying CD in PowerPoint presentation format contains a wealth of material to enhance classroom presentation, study, and clinical use. It includes all 170 tables and all 250 figures, many in color, with their explanatory legends, easy to access and organized chapter by chapter with context provided plus, Highlights for the Clinician summarizing the key clinical points for each chapter; locator menus; useful links; and a topic outline.
