Biological psychiatry volume 1 – G. Racagni, N. Brunello, T. Fukuda

The 5th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry took place in Florence from June 9th to 14th, 1991. It was attended by about 5,000 participants from 70 countries. The congress included 120 symposia, 40 oral free communication sessions and 2,500 poster presentations. Moreover, 11 satellite symposia were organized. These volumes contain the papers presented at the symposium sessions of congress. Bio logical psychiatry represents a fusion of several scientific disciplines – pharmacology, neurobiology, biochemistry, genetics, physiology, anatomy, biophysics and psychology – all focused on acquiring an ultimate understanding of the relationships between brain and behaviour. Psychiatric disorders include schizophrenia, affective disorders, the many forms of senile and presenile dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, the anxiety disorders, childhood disorders and the variants of eating and sleeping dysfunctions. Each of these illnesses represents a complex interaction of biological, psychological and social variables. The growing number of neuroscientists adopting the biological approach to neuropsychiatric diseases has resulted in a fast expanding body of knowledge regarding brain function and pathology. The field is exciting because we see complementary advances across a broad front of recently developed research areas. Psychotherapeutic drugs used to treat psychiatric and neurologic disorders play a crucial role in elucidating the biological bases of these diseases. Studying the mechanism of action of these compounds should give us important clues about the normal and pathological functioning of the brain. The objectives of the effort are well reflected in the topics covered by the papers in these two volumes. This book will be of interest to psychiatrists, neurologists, clinicians and neuropharmacologists.
