Description - Essentials of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences by Stuart C. Yudofsky
The explosive growth in the neurosciences - growth that prompted the 2002 publication of the fourth edition of "The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences" - continues unabated. To make this information accessible to residents and practitioners alike, the editors have created an "Essentials" volume based on the acclaimed textbook. This "Essentials" edition is approximately half the 1400 pages of the complete "Textbook's" fourth edition. As such, it functions as a subspecialty reference that details assessment techniques and the full range of treatments available for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. With 20 chapters written by 46 leading clinicians and researchers in neuropsychiatry, this concise reference focuses on the key principles of diagnosis and treatment of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. It includes an extensively revised and expanded chapter on the neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium, and a section about the clinical relevance of drug-induced delirium. The volume begins with assessment, and continues through symptomatologies, disorders and treatments.
