Book description

Unique in approach and authority and illustrated with informative case histories, Behavior and Mood Disorders in Focal Brain Lesions, first published in 2000, makes a major contribution to understanding the relationship between focal brain disorders and emotional and behavioural symptoms, summarising the current state of research and providing the basis for improved patient care. This is the first clinical reference work to address specifically the relationship of focal brain dysfunction to behavioral and emotional disorders, giving the most comprehensive account available of these manifestations of brain lesions including stroke, trauma, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and even neurosurgery. A worldwide team of neuroscientists and clinicians examines the links between regional brain dysfunction and disorders of mood, thought and affect processing, and behaviour. Chapters are devoted to methodological issues, to lesions of specific sites, such as the frontal lobes, basal ganglia and thalamus, and to symptoms such as mood disorder, violent behaviour and anosognosia.


‘It is exhaustive and makes us very conscious that a focal brain lesion affects not only our faculties of speaking, thinking and moving, but also our emotional reactions… this book is a ‘must’ for professionals or medical students interested in the relationships between the brain and behavioral disorders.’

‘This book is an excellent reference work for a wide variety of family practitioners, psychiatrists, physicians and neurologists. The subject is extremely difficult and the book is unique in that the editors and many of the authors are neurologists.’

‘The overall standard of production is first-rate … the editors seem to have found a real gap in the current book market. Their book deserves to be widely read and should be a definitive reference source for some time.’

‘… a valuable survey of current research.’
