About this book


Patients with many disorders considered primarily "neurological" also have behavior disorders that are either overlooked, ignored by the attending clinical neurologist, or referred to a psychiatrist. In fact, it is becoming ever clearer that neurology and psychiatry share common ground and need each other. In Psychiatry for Neurologists, a panel of internationally recognized psychiatrists, neurologists, clinical psychologists, and neuropsychiatrists review for the clinical neurologist those aspects of psychiatry that impact the management of neurological disorders. On the one hand, the authors illuminate the neurological aspects of such psychiatric disorders as depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, hysteria, catatonia, addictions, and personality disorders. On the other hand, they also explain in detail the psychiatric evaluation of the neurological patient and discuss the behavioral aspects of the major neurological disorders, including psychiatric complications of dementia and stroke, neuromuscular disorders, the psychiatric aspects of Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, Huntington's disease, Tourette's syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Additional chapters examine childhood and geriatric disorders, fatigue, delirium, psychopharmacology, and the problems of managing psychiatric emergencies in a neurological practice.
Comprehensive and timely, Psychiatry for Neurologists helps to close the artificial gap separating neurology and psychiatry so that neurologists feel comfortable managing the psychiatric aspects of the neurological disorders they treat.
