This is the long-awaited new edition of Jeffrey Cummings' classic work, Clinical Neuropsychiatry, originally published in 1985. That book represented an integration of behavioural neurology and biological psychiatry into a single volume devoted to explicating brain-behaviour relationships. It was clinically oriented and intended for practitioners caring for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. The new title reflects the authors' effort to link the recent explosion of new information from neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, genetics, neuropharmacology, neuropathology, and neuroimaging to the clinical descriptions. Yet the clinical emphasis of its predecessor has been maintained. Each chapter has a consistent approach and the book as whole provides a practical, easy-to-use synthesis of clinical advice and basic science. The volume is enchanced by 4-colour images throughout. It is intended for students, residents, fellows, and practitioners of neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience. It will also be interest to individuals in neuroimaging.

MEDIA REVIEWS
. . . an important, succinct, well written and beautifully illustrated text book of neuropsychiatry . . . The book should be essential reading for neurologists with an interest in behaviour and, indeed, in how the brain works and for psychiatrists who may need reminding that, whatever we do, think and believe, our brain is vitally involved in the process. * Journal of Electrophysiological Technology, Vol 29, No 3 *
The book is lavishly presented with numerous tables and radiological images . . . as the author of the rival publication, it is hard not to admire this text . . . in the space of just 400 pages Cummings and Mega have crammed in an impressive amount of data . . . a beautifully presented summary of a very complicated subject. * The Lancet Neurology *
. . . it is an impressive achievement and deserves wide readership. Those who enjoyed the first classic work will not be disappointed at the modernization which has been achieved in the intervening 18 years. * Brain *
