Description:

The knowledge base of biological psychiatry has recently increased substantially, particularly in response to advances in genetics and neuroimaging. For its third edition, Biological Psychiatry has been thoroughly updated to account for these developments. As in the earlier editions of the book, there are comprehensive reviews and explanations of the latest advances in neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, genetics, and brain imaging-descriptions not only of methodologies but also of the application of these in clinical settings. This edition introduce two new chapters, one on anxiety and another on motivation and the addictions. The treatment chapter now includes the latest information on brain stimulation techniques. Skillfully written by two of the world's leading biological psychiatrists, the text facilitates understanding and prevents repetition.
