Molecules and Mental Illness

Molecules and Mental Illness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the few psychiatrists with formal training in molecular biology, Barondes offers an unusual perspective on the symptoms and treatment of mental illness. Passages written by patients and their families describing their illnesses, the frustrations of being diagnosed, and the concessions and adaptations they make are interspersed with Barondes' text and provide a human counterpoint. With biological research playing an increasingly important role in modern psychiatry and the treatment of patients, Molecules and Mental Illness is a timely, important book for patients and professionals alike.

Table of Contents

The evolution of biological psychiatry — The genetics of behavior — How genes work — Neurons, circuits, and neurotransmission — Drugs and receptors — Mania and depression — Schizophrenia — Fears and compulsions — Epilogue — Recapitulation (in verse).
