Summary

The parallel fields of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry often remain divided, despite their integration into a single subspecialty. However, the needs of patients with cognitive, emotional and behavioral disorders frequently span this division. By emphasizing the principles of this developing subspecialty, Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry prepares clinicians to apply these to the evaluation and management of patients affected by neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. Structural and functional neuroanatomy is discussed, with emphasis on frontal-subcortical circuits and the neurobehavioral functions of white matter and the cerebellum. Core clinical skills covered include: Neuropsychiatric history taking Neurological and mental status examinations Conventional and advanced neuroimaging and electrophysiology Neuropsychological assessment Forensic neuropsychiatry Contributing authors from a broad range of clinical neuroscience subspecialties provide a comprehensive review of core topics in the field. Whether your primary training is in neurology or psychiatry, this book will develop your ability to think across the disciplines.
