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.
