In recent years there have been major advances in areas of clinical neuroscience including neurogenetics, neuroimaging and the scientific study of consciousness. Disorders of Brain and Mind II brings together the most important findings since the previous volume was published in 1998. In this entirely new collection of articles, the scope is again wide. Imaging of the normal and abnormal mind figures prominently, and there is also coverage of genes and behaviour, brain development, consciousness and aggression. New disease-orientated chapters detail recent advances in dementia, affective illness and drug use and abuse. Clinical chapters are paired with those describing neuropathology or experimental models of the disease in question. The distinguished editors have assembled an authoritative team of contributors from the fields of psychiatry, clinical and cognitive neuroscience, and psychology. This book will appeal to anyone who has a clinical or scientific interest in the mind and its disorders.

From the reviews of the first volume of Disorders of Mind and Brain: 'Most of the neuroscience that is relevant to psychiatrists, or likely to be in the foreseeable future, is here. The book is particularly strong on cognitive neuropsychology but also has many excellent chapters on behavioural pharmacology, neuroimaging and the neurodevelopmental approach to schizophrenia ... This is without doubt the best introduction to neuroscience for psychiatrists.' British Journal of Psychiatry

From the reviews of the first volume of Disorders of Mind and Brain: 'This is an excellent book focusing on various neuropsychiatry topics where brain and mind come together. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, it is an outstanding contribution to psychiatry ... Any clinician or researcher involved and interested in psychopathology–brain relationships should read and refer to it.' Michael J. Schrift , Rush-Presbyterian-St Luke's Medical Center, Doody's Notes

'The book illustrates the fascinating tools neuroscience offers for the understanding of brain disorders. It combines a sound introduction of new technologies with applications to clinically relevant questions. This makes it an informative and inspiring read for any scientist and student of neuroscience.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research
