Disorders of Brain and Mind

Emile D. Risby

Published: May 1, 2001

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Disorders of Brain and Mind is an excellent resource text for students, clinicians, and researchers in the fields of psychology, neurology, and psychiatry. The text begins by reviewing the normal neurophysiology of the frontal lobes. After this background, there is a comprehensive discussion of the potential neuropsychological sequelae of frontal lobe damage. Overall, the discussion of frontal lobe functioning and how symptoms consistent with frontal lobe dysfunction are seen in patients with schizophrenia is excellent. The authors acknowledge, however, that frontal lobe dysfunction, in and of itself, cannot explain the full spectrum of schizophrenic symptoms.
