This practical introductory guide to neuropsychiatry provides a starting point for anyone interested in brain-behavior relationships and the treatment of neuropsychiatric problems. In Part I the authors introduce a neuropsychiatric approach to understanding basic and complex cognition, emotion, personality and psychological adaptation. Part II describes the fundamental methods of neuropsychiatry, including an outline of the neuropsychiatric evaluation and the mental status examination. The contribution of electrophysiology and medical imaging is also discussed. Part III reviews a range of topics in clinical neuropsychiatry, illustrating the practical application of concepts and methods previously discussed. From here, readers will be able to extend the approach to the management of neuropsychiatric disorders seen in clinical settings. For students, residents, allied health clinicians and psychiatrists this is an invaluable introduction to the neurobiology, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, evaluation and treatment methods of clinical neuropsychiatry.
