New to this edition Contains 10 new chapters to cover new advances in the field
This new edition of a definitive text shows how the advances in molecular and cellular biology and in the basic neurosciences have brought the revolution in molecular medicine to the field of psychiatry. It describes what is known about the neurobiological mechanisms underlying psychiatric disorders and shows how this information has the potential to dramatically improve treatment and ultimately lead to prevention.
Completely revised and updated from the previous edition, the book includes 10 new chapters on topics including genetics, experimental therapeutics, and late-life mood disorders. Both a textbook and a reference book, Neurobiology of Mental Illness is a uniquely valuable resource.
Readership: Psychiatrists, neuroscientists, trainees, and graduate students
