From the Back Cover
This is the first comprehensive and detailed reference work which focuses on neuromodulation strategies in psychiatry. Neuromodulation strategies are no longer confined to tertiary hospitals but are used in community practices and even by individual psychiatrists. Surgery for psychiatric disorders is one of the main advances in the field of Functional Neurosurgery.
Neuromodulation in Psychiatry includes chapters on the history of this controversial field, and the ethics of modern usage of such techniques. Specific chapters are devoted to neuromodulation and surgical strategies used in psychiatry including transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, direct cortical stimulation, and deep brain stimulation. For each technique, a chapter describes the basic principles of each technique, using figures and schematics to illustrate details for people who do not have personal experience of using these techniques. Another chapter then focuses on the results of clinical research, trials and applications for that strategy.
Written by an expert multidisciplinary editorial team across the fields of neurosurgery, psychiatry and neurology, this title:
- Encompasses basic principles, technical aspects and clinical applications including ethical considerations
- Clearly explains each technique with implications for clinical practice
- Presents evidence in a comprehensive summary suitable for all levels
- Allows psychiatrists to evaluate results obtained using such strategies and to make decisions regarding the best course of treatment for their patients
An essential reference guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, and respective trainees.
