Item Description...
As scientific knowledge grows about the role of the brain in mental disorder, no clinician can afford to be uninformed about neurobiology. This accessible primer provides the basic grounding in neuroscience that all contemporary mental health professionals need. Readers are first guided through the fundamentals of neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and psychiatric genetics. Chapters then illuminate the neurobiological underpinnings of a range of frequently encountered disorders - including ADHD, substance abuse, mood and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and learning and cognitive problems - giving particular attention to the impact of psychosocial risk factors on the brain. Also examined are ways that both pharmacological and psychological interventions have been shown to alter brain chemistry as they bring about a reduction in symptoms.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Mar 30, 2007
Simply an excellent book with lots of information in a small package. Great coverage of the biobases of different psychopathology. Great overview of neuroscience for psychologists or other mental health workers.
A truly valuable contribution to the neuroscience and mental health research literature  Nov 24, 2006
"A truly valuable contribution to the neuroscience and mental health research literature. It is a formidable task to cogently explain underlying mechanisms of brain function and the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders; however Dr. Pliszka's book delivers in being both replete with citations while being written in a very engaging style. His articulate explanation of the role of catecholamines in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is just one of many noteworthy examples. This book should be a required psychopathology text for all mental health clinicians-in-training."--David R. DeLorenzo, PhD, Private Practice
Excellent in all respects  Apr 15, 2006
I cannot recommend this text highly enough. It was easy to see that
the author had put a lot of work into this project. His writing was excellent and this
was good, because the subject matter demanded focus, attention, concentration and rereading.
This is a good place to begin, and return to again, when the one wants to get a foothold in the neurobiology of the mind.
