This is the first comprehensive textbook on the use of MRI in psychiatry covering imaging techniques, brain systems and a review of findings in different psychiatric disorders. The book is divided into three sections, the first of which covers in detail all the major MRI-based methodological approaches available today, including fMRI, EEG-fMRI, DTI and MR spectroscopy. In addition, the role of MRI in imaging genetics and combined brain stimulation and imaging is carefully explained. The second section provides an overview of the different brain systems that are relevant for psychiatric disorders, including the systems for perception, emotion, cognition and reward. The final part of the book presents the MRI findings that are obtained in all the major psychiatric disorders using the previously discussed techniques. Numerous carefully chosen images support the informative text, making this an ideal reference work for all practitioners and trainees with an interest in this flourishing field.

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"The intended audience is 'PhD students in psychology or neuroscience, and the medical student, and also residents in psychiatry or clinical psychiatrists.' . This is a very scholarly book with each chapter concluding with pertinent and timely citations of the scientific literature. This is a first-rate introductory book on the use of MRI for studying psychopathology. I highly recommend it to psychiatry residents and psychiatrists in practice who are interested in learning about this important tool." (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2014)
