Brain and Behavior in Child Psychiatry

Front Cover
Springer-Verlag, Jan 1, 1990 - Biological child psychiatry - 414 pages
This book questions where we stand in 1990 with regard to biological child psychiatry and where we should go in the future with our developmental approach to the child's brain. It offers a window to the research, knowledge and thinking on both sides of the Atlantic. This critical look will help improve our understanding of disorder-specific neuronal weaknesses, their interaction with unspecific environmental stress factors, and the compensatory factors inside and outside a child's brain. The contents focus on psychobiology, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, genetics, cognition, sleep, speech and language, childhood psychoses, MBD and head injury, diagnostic issues, and therapy with an emphasis on drugs and biofeedback.
