The editors review the latest advances in our understanding of the biochemical basis of the disease, its detection and diagnosis, and its relationship to other co-existent mental illness. There is up-to-date coverage of psychopharmacological agents and expert comment on recent advances in neurological aspects. In addition, this volume also includes discussion of cognitive and negative symptoms therapies, and psychosocial treatments.
