Editorial Reviews

"Neurosurgical Treatments for Psychiatric Disorders is an excellent, timely, and remarkably, integrative text that presents a rich blend of basic and clinically oriented neuroscientific knowledge that has direct relevance to rational diagnosis and treatment of patients who are not healed by traditional means. There is much to be learned from this text for all professionals whose work involves the interaction of brain and behavior." (James A. Moses Jr., PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 60 (37), September, 2015)"It would be most appropriate for clinicians and researchers in neurology, psychiatry, and especially neurosurgery. . This book encourages clinicians to consider ablation techniques and deep brain stimulation as potential therapies for severe and refractory mental illness. The authors discuss the neurosurgical techniques that have been employed and the available data supporting their use. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the relevant neuroanatomy, imaging, and surgical techniques that have led to major advances in target precision."
