Rational Approach To Brain Imaging &
Neuropsychiatry is a rapid evolving clinical specialty that is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric or behavioral disorders in persons with disturbances of brain function. Brain dysfunction in the form of a stroke for example, may produce depression (a psychiatric disorder traditionally addressed by "neuropsychiatrists") or an aphasia (a "deficit" syndrome traditionally addressed by "neurobehaviorists" or "behavioral neurologists"). Both approaches -- neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology -- are essential to the care of persons with brain dysfunction.
The growth of neuropsychiatry is fueled by the remarkable advances in the neurosciences (and particularly our understanding of brain-behavior relations), as well as by the development of new and powerful clinical tools (e.g., structural and functional brain imaging) and treatments (eg, safe and effective psychotherapies, medications, and brain stimulation therapies) to improve the care of persons with disturbed brain-behavior relations.
The purpose of this volume - The Manual of Neuropsychiatric Therapeutics - is to build upon these advances in clinical and basic neuroscience in order to clearly and concisely provide a rational and evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and biopsychosocial treatment of the neuropsychiatric disorders commonly encountered by practitioners, house officers, and students of brain-behavior relations. For each of these disorders we describe the syndrome and what is known about its pathophysiology, and then provide evidenced-based guidelines for assessment and treatment. While there may be more than one legitimate clinical approach for a given neuropsychiatric disorder, the approaches to care described herein reflect the current practices of the Fellows of the American Neuropsychiatric Association, all of whom are senior clinicians or clinical scientists and noted experts in the care of persons with brain dysfunction. 
We are confident this text will enable practitioners to provide state-of-the-art care to their patients with brain dysfunction, and at the same time stimulate consideration of fundamental brain-behavior relations.
