Handbook of biological psychiatry part ll – Herman M. 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.
Part ll of the Handbook examines the psychophysiological aspects of brain mechanisms and abnormal behavior. Among the topics considered are schizophrenia, anxiety, psychopathy, alcoholism, aggression, brain-damaged patients, sleep and the sleep disorders, childhood disorders, and psychological factors in physical disease.
Part ll: Brain Mechanisms and Abnormal Behavior–Psychophysiology 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 all other parts of the paths yet to be covered in contemporary research.
