Clinical Neuroscience offers a comprehensive overview of the biological bases of major psychological and psychiatric disorders, and provides foundational information regarding the anatomical and physiological principles of brain functioning. In addition, the book presents information concerning neuroplasticity, pharmacology, brain imaging, and brain stimulation techniques. Subsequent chapters address specific psychological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases, including major depressive and bipolar disorders, anxiety, schizophrenia, disorders of childhood origin, and addiction, as well as neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. This highly readable textbook expands case examples and illustrations to discuss the latest research findings in clinical neuroscience from an empirical, interdisciplinary perspective.
