Movement disorders serve as a paradigm for understanding both neurological and psychiatric illness, and bridge the narrowing gap between the two disciplines. Many movement disorders have a familial neurobiological basis, and yet environmental influences may modify their nature and course, particularly when the onset of the disorder is in childhood. Movement and Allied Disorders in Childhood documents the recent advances in the understanding of this complex field by presenting an update on research developments in a wide range of childhood movement disorders. For readers with a background in clinical medicine, the book offers practical guidance on management, and for researchers it provides a critical assessment of the state of the art and directions for future research. In an area involving an increasing range of disciplines in clinical management and research, this timely and informative book will be an indispensable resource for psychiatrists and neurologists, as well as for basic scientists and clinicians working in the field of movement disorder.
