Previously published as Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychiatry, this book has been re-titled and thoroughly updated, redesigned, and enhanced to include the fundamentals of neuroscience. This highly acclaimed text provides a definitive, clinically oriented, yet comprehensive book covering neuropsychiatry and neuroscience for registrars, residents, clinicians, and practitioners of neuropsychiatry and its related fields.

New to this edition:

  • A completely new section covering the fundamentals of neuroscience
  • Additions to the clinical coverage including chronic fatigue conditions, personality disorders, dissociative disorders, and impulse control disorders
  • Thoroughly redesigned with extensive use of high-quality color clinical photographs to help illustrate the most difficult concepts
  • Access to a free eBook containing all the text and a wealth of supplementary material to be accessed online or from the reader’s desktop


"This new edition is not a mere reprint and includes an entirely new chapter devoted to additional clinical topics and an impressive update to the references, citing the latest studies. The authors' mastery in neuroscience and teaching is seen in every chapter of this exceptional work. … In summary, the exceptional content of the Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychiatry and Behavioural Neuroscience makes the reader willing to explore further in the field; it is quite accessible for a broad public (student, teachers, practitioners) and overwhelmingly useful for experienced clinicians who will benefit from a detailed, clever and refreshing volume."

—Dr. Cristina Nombela, Ph.D., Journal of Psychological Medicine, Vol. 43, 2013
