Mind and Brain: Bridging Neurology and Psychiatry
Description of Mind and Brain: Bridging Neurology and Psychiatry
This book discusses the link between the brain and the mind. Adopting an evidence-based neuropsychiatry approach while also touching on philosophical aspects, it examines the association between diseases of the brain and mental health, offering comprehensive insights into the emerging new discipline of psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology and its translation to clinical practice. The book particularly focuses on brain plasticity and on explaining the ability of the brain to learn new pathways in everyday situations and at the same time improve creativity.
Written by clinicians and leading experts in the field of brain physiology and pathology, this book is a valuable resource for medical professionals and postgraduate students.
