Cambridge Medical Reviews in Neurobiology and Psychiatry is a regular series of high quality up-to-date reviews on the application of state-of-the-art neuroscience methods to the understanding of psychiatric disorder. This volume addresses such issues as molecular genetics and the major psychoses, the B-amyloid precursor protein and the biochemistry of tau proteins in Alzheimer's disease, cytoarchitectonic and developmental aspects of schizophrenia, immunological and genetic factors in schizophrenia, neuroendocrine developments in psychiatric research, the role of neurotrophins in neurodegenerative disease, the biology of mental handicap, HIV infection and the brain, and applications to psychiatry of magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
