Handbook of Biological psychiatry part l – Herman M. van Praag, Malcolm H. Lader, Ole J. Rafaelsen, Edward J. Sachar
Handbook of Biological Psychiatry, in six parts, summarizes and evaluates the outcome of twenty-five years of brain and behavior research, research that has developed steadily since the introduction of modern psychotropic drugs. In its scope, the Handbook covers the entire range of biological determinants of abnormal human behavior, including the important results that have emerged from both the laboratory and the clinical setting. Individual parts of the Handbook cover the interdisciplinary sources of biological psychiatry, the results of genetic, biochemical, pharmacological, hormonal, and physiological research, and the various forms of biological therapy.
Biological psychiatry derives its information and methodology from numerous other disciplines. These are reviewed in Part 1: Disciplines Relevant to Biological Psychiatry. The wide variety of subjects surveyed herein reflect both the complexity of brain and behavior problems and the attractions they hold for workers in related fields.
Part I of the Handbook of Biological Psychiatry is written for the entire range of individuals who are interested in the relevance of biological and medical knowledge to the psychiatric and neurologic patient. Students and professionals, with and without specialized laboratory training, general psychiatrists, and other mental health workers will find this and subsequent parts of the Handbook of Biological Psychiatry to be their key source of information on the paths taken and the paths yet to be covered in contemporary research.
