The scientific study of mental disorder is exciting today because of discoveries in molecular genetics, cognitive processes, neurochemistry and neuroanatomy. The study of mental disorder has evolved from a primarily descriptive discipline into a mature science that encompasses both biological underpinnings and social and developmental work. Psychopathology combines these fields of research to present a comprehensive picture of psychosis. In this important volume, distinguished investigators from these fields present findings from their laboratories, as well as perspectives on areas of rapid growth and change. The editors also provide thoughtful overviews of four major topics in psychopathology research: brain mechanisms, thinking, development and genetics. This book will appeal to graduate students, clinicians and researchers in the fields of psychiatry, cognitive science and neuroscience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a very useful, up-to-date treatment of psychopathological research ... It has heightened my appreciation of progress achieved to date, of the outstanding problems remaining, and of the importance of a multileveled approach to the study of mental disorder. This book would be particulary suitable for psychiatry trainees and for researchers.' Bryan Mowry, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry
"This is an excellent and exciting new book, written by internationally recognized authorities in the field...Anyone who wants to keep abreast of developments in the scientific understanding of psychopathology should own this book." Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
"Psychopathology is a densely packed and thoughful book that focuses on schizophrenia and adds to our knowledge of it through assessment of four different areas....a valuable book for those working on the mechanisms of psychopathology or for those wanting to gain a summary of the field." J.A. Mather, Choice
