Frontiers of Neurology and Neuroscience; Volume 42


The second of two volumes on the topic, this volume brings together 14 articles on neuropsychiatric syndromes that lie between the fields of neurology and psychiatry. Neurologists and other researchers from Europe and the US discuss Ganser syndrome; Cotard syndrome; Capgras syndrome and other delusional misidentification syndromes; De Clerambault syndrome, Othello syndrome, Folie C deux, and variants; Couvade syndrome; possessions; conversion, factitious disorder, and malingering; Munchausen syndrome; camptocormia; glossolalia and aphasia; violent behavior; culture-specific hyperstartle-plus syndromes; the dancing manias or mass psychogenic illness; and the Alice-in-Wonderland syndrome. They focus on the most representative clinical syndromes, excluding common manifestations that have been recently reviewed, and specific forms of delusions. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
