Book Review

The Clinical Neuropsychiatry of Stroke

Constantine G. Lyketsos

Published: July 31, 2000

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

It is rare nowadays for a single investigator to represent an
entire field of clinical inquiry. This is what Robert G. Robinson
has accomplished regarding neuropsychiatric disorders seen after
stroke, with invaluable help from several international collaborators.
Robinson’s effort has opened up the area of inquiry,
defined most of the essential questions, and provided some of
the initial answers. Thanks to his work, we know more about the
cerebral basis of emotion and have developed an initial understanding
of the neuropsychiatric disorders that patients develop
after stroke, their impact on the patients themselves, and their
treatment. Robinson’s work in poststroke depression in particular
is seminal and has earned him widespread recognition in the
international psychiatric and neuroscience communities.
