This book was originally published in 1992. At the time of publication, the neurobiological basis of psychiatric disorder was a rapidly expanding field of study, primarily as a result of developments in the basic neurosciences. Neurobiology and Psychiatry served as a regular forum for evaluation and dissemination of information in this fundamental field of biological psychiatry. Topics selected for review illustrated the application of a range of neurobiological techniques to major psychiatric disorders, providing an in-depth review of work in this field. The intended readership included established research workers in the field, postgraduate psychiatrists, psychiatric trainees and other clinical and laboratory workers.

."..an excellent reference for a technical question within one of the topic areas covered." Donald D. Gold Jr., Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
