To convey this intensified focus and to acknowledge the recognition by the American Neuropsychiatric Association and the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties of new subspecialty status in neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology, the editors have added Behavioral Neurosciences to the title. New and expanded chapters cover topics such as the cellular and molecular biology of the neuron, the epidemiology and genetics of neuropsychiatric disorders, neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium, and clinical and functional neuroimaging. In compiling this informative and enjoyable compendium, the editors have crafted each chapter as a complete stand-alone entity, so that clinicians can easily apply the content to the day-to-day challenges of their practices.
