With major discoveries in genetics, biochemistry, anatomy and pharmacotherapy, psychiatry has closely allied itself with life sciences, and research continues apace. Updated to describe leading-edge medical research while still maintaining pioneering and classical studies, this collection of 41 articles covers the science behind syndromes in adults, child psychiatry, symptom clusters, and special interest research. Topics include mental status examination, bipolar and depressive disorders, schizophrenia and its cohorts, anxiety, antisocial personality disorders, alcoholism and drug addiction, and sexual disorders in adults; disruptive disorders, mood disorders and autism in children; mood and anxiety symptoms, thought disorders and catatonia clusters. Special studies cover such topics as suicide, laboratory experimentation, pharmacology (including toxic ranges), forensic psychiatry, neuroimagery and electroconvulsive therapy.
