Why should neurologists care about depression?
It is one of the most frequent psychiatric comorbid conditions of neurologic disorders. Not only does it have a negative impact on the quality of patients, but it is also associated with a worse course of the neurologic disease. Yet, more often than not, neurologists have not been trained to recognize clinical depression in their patients.

The first part of the book begins with an overview of depression, its incidence and manifestations and neurobiological origins; how it's diagnosed; and its relevance to neurology, in particular to suicidality. The second part looks at depression in distinct conditions, in particular: migraine, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, dementia, and traumatic brain injury. This useful guide takes a practical approach, with "tips and tricks" boxes, case studies, points of interest boxes, and take-home summaries.
