Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(11), 763-764. This volume (see record 1996-97828-000) is broken down into six discreet and useful sections starting with a carefully outlined review of brain structure and functional neuroanatomy and continuing through the basic assumptions of biological psychiatry, the biological bases of the major DSM-IV disorders, the various medical “look-alikes” in psychiatry, the practical use of medication, and specifically the classifications and uses of psychotropic medications. This volume serves a particularly useful purpose for professionals who wish to review human mental health services through biological eyes.
