This volume is part of a series designed to instruct students, residents, and physicians in aspects of the new specialty of neuropsychiatry. The volume concerns the assessment of neuropsychiatric patients, comprising only 5 chapters covering the physical and neurologic examination, neuropsychological testing, laboratory studies, electrophysiological measures, and brain imaging.

In the interest of full disclosure, I should state at the outset that I am a neurologist, not a neuropsychiatrist, which may color some of my impressions.​
