Modern neuroscience has provided us
with a foundation for understanding mental disorders in terms of
brain dysfunction. Imaging techniques, such as PET and fMRI, have
demonstrated graphically the correspondence between patterns of
brain activity and patterns of mental activity.
This book draws on evidence from neuroimaging studies, together
with evidence from the fields of neuropsychology, cognitive
psychology, electrophysiology, neurochemistry and pharmacology, to
generate a coherent and plausible account of cerebral processes by
which mental symptoms are generated.
It is intended for psychiatrists and psychologists with an interest
in the origins of the symptoms they observe and treat, as well as
for neuroscience students and researchers interested in the
relationship between findings from the laboratory and the mental
disorders that occur in clinical practice. Indeed it is intended
for anyone with a serious interest in how the mind works, and in
how mental disorders arise.
