Synopsis of Neuropsychiatry

Carl Salzman

Published: February 2, 2001

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Synopsis of Neuropsychiatry, as its title implies, is a condensed and updated version of its parent volume Neuropsychiatry, first published in 1996. The original was a pioneer in the field, providing readers with a neurologically oriented view of psychiatric illness, as well as the psychiatric manifestations of neurologic illness such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and so on. The present synopsis provides much of the same information but in shortened form. Included are chapters on neuropsychological testing and evaluation, normal functional brain systems (including neurochemistry, endocrine, and immune systems), pain, memory, language, emotion, perception, and executive systems.
