Modern neuroscience has provided uswith a foundation for understanding mental disorders in terms ofbrain dysfunction. Imaging techniques, such as PET and fMRI, havedemonstrated graphically the correspondence between patterns ofbrain activity and patterns of mental activity.

This book draws on evidence from neuroimaging studies, togetherwith evidence from the fields of neuropsychology, cognitivepsychology, electrophysiology, neurochemistry and pharmacology, togenerate a coherent and plausible account of cerebral processes bywhich mental symptoms are generated.

It is intended for psychiatrists and psychologists with an interestin the origins of the symptoms they observe and treat, as well asfor neuroscience students and researchers interested in therelationship between findings from the laboratory and the mentaldisorders that occur in clinical practice. Indeed it is intendedfor anyone with a serious interest in how the mind works, and inhow mental disorders arise.
