Memory complaints are a frequent feature of psychiatric disorder, even in the absence of organic disease. In this practical reference for the clinician, first published in 2000, German Berrios and John Hodges lead an international team of eminent psychiatrists, behavioural neurologists and clinical psychologists to focus on the psychiatric and organic aspects of memory disorders from the perspective of the multidisciplinary memory clinic. These disorders include organic syndromes such as the dementias, the amnesic syndrome and transient amnestic states, and also psychiatric aspects of memory disorders in the functional psychoses. Among the specific topics reviewed are the paramnesias, conditions such as deja vu, flashbulb and flashback memories, and the problems of recovered, false and feigned memories. Throwing light on established conditions, and also introducing two new syndromes, this book makes a major contribution to the understanding and clinical management of memory disorders in psychiatry, neuropsychology and other disciplines.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a book which ... approaches memory as a clinical subject with a breadth and comprehensiveness unlikely to be found elsewhere. It is to be strongly recommended, not least for those already engaged or planning to set up memory clinics and to psychiatrists with a desire to learn more about higher mental function .' Journal of Neurolology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry
'This book offers the reader a collection of very well-integrated, written and referenced overviews, several of which throw new light on established as well as less established disturbances of memory. It is highly recommended as a fascinating textbook for the memory interested student of psychiatry, neurology or clinical psychology and as a practical reference volume for the clinician.' Acta Psychiatric Scandinavian
... this is a solid book.' Addiction Biology
'... concise up-to-date evidence-based explanations of the basis of primary, secondary, long-term memory and meta-memory.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
'... I was impressed by Greene and Hodges who take the reader clearly through the clinical process of making a diagnosis of dementia. And insight in dementia is covered in some considerable and interesting detail.' John Morton, Applied Cognitive Psychology
'... the book is replete with valuable information and resources ... the editors have provided a fitting companion for the clinician looking for a memory aid.' Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
"This is an extremely valuable book on memory disorders in neuropsychiatry. Clinicians and researchers as well as trainees will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book." Doody's Review Service G
"In an entertaining, systematic format, with wide subject appeal, Berrios and Hodges successfuly explore the multi-faceted and expanding field of memory disorders while concurrently acknowledging and blending various aspects and contributions of psychiatry and psychology, resulting in an interesting and convincing argument for multidisciplinary management...Memory Disorders in Psychiatric Practice is written in an easy narrative style that is a pleasure to read." The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences
"The book contains much practical information. The sections on common problems like dementia and the pseudodementia of depression are comprehensive. On narrower topics, like amnesia or subjective memory complaints, it would be hard to find a more detailed reference. The chapters devoted to the history of memory science make appealing reading. Any topic you can think of in connection with memory is given attention in this book, including deja vu, jamais vu, confabulation, flashbulb or flashback memory, dissociative amnesia, recovered and false memories, and functional memory complaints...the book is replete with valuable information and resources, including an extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter. The editors have provided a fitting companion for the clinician looking for a memory aid." Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
