New Concepts of Psychostimulants Induced Neurotoxicity Book Review:

Published since 1959, International Review of Neurobiology is a well-known series appealing to neuroscientists, clinicians, psychologists, physiologists, and pharmacologists. Led by an internationally renowned editorial board, this important serial publishes both eclectic volumes made up of timely reviews and thematic volumes that focus on recent progress in a specific area of neurobiology research. With recent advancements in new knowledge, it has become evident that psychostimulants and related drugs of abuse are influencing our central nervous system (CNS) remarkably and could alter their function for a longtime. This volume is the first to focus on substance abuse induced brain pathology in the widest sense as it covers alterations in neuronal, glial and endothelial cell functions under the influence of acute or chronic usage of substance abuse.

The Neurobiology of Cocaine Book Review:

Representing the latest data from active research groups, The Neurobiology of Cocaine is designed to educate students and inform experts in a rapidly changing field. This volume presents current research regarding the mechanisms of cocaine's action in the brain. Recent developments of cellular, molecular, and brain imaging methods provide new evidence that chemical and molecular substrates underlie cocaine reinforcement, dependence, and withdrawal. This book explores the biological bases of such effects, describing the brain circuits affected by cocaine, neuroendocrine and neurophysiological actions of cocaine, neurochemistry and pharmacology of cocaine, and cocaine effects on signal transduction, gene expression, and protein phosphorylation. This up-to-date text also describes the recently cloned class of neurotransporters affected by cocaine and characterizes their interaction with the drug. These reports focus on the effects of chronic exposure and subsequent withdrawal, which are differentiated from acute cocaine actions. Thus, they provide information on brain mechanisms likely active during long-term use and abuse in humans. Such commonalities are illustrated by a discussion of cocaine action in the human brain as visualized by positron emission tomography. This volume is a must for anyone interested in the mechanisms underlying cocaine abuse.

Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide Book Review:

The first comprehensive psychiatry review textbook, designed expressly for the Canadian market, Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide is the resource residents and psychiatrists need to master the qualifying examinations in psychiatry of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. These exams are required for certification both for graduating residents and most foreign-trained psychiatrists seeking to practice in Canada. This new volume, based on The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry, has been carefully edited to include only material relevant to the Canadian exam. References have been taken from both the U.S. and Canadian psychiatric literature, and laboratory units, medication names and doses, and the language used have been edited to be consistent with Canadian psychiatry. The volume takes the reader from the basic sciences comprising the foundation of psychiatry, through the psychiatric interview and other diagnostic topics, to syndrome-specific chapters paralleling DSM-IV-TR, and finally to current treatment options. Rounding out the review is a 200-question practice exam that reflects the structure of the actual board examinations. Although no substitute for quality medical and residency training, Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide will help the prospective exam-taker ameliorate weaknesses and enhance strengths in preparation for a successful exam experience.

Neuroeconomics Book Review:

In the years since it first published, Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain has become the standard reference and textbook in the burgeoning field of neuroeconomics. The second edition, a nearly complete revision of this landmark book, will set a new standard. This new edition features five sections designed to serve as both classroom-friendly introductions to each of the major subareas in neuroeconomics, and as advanced synopses of all that has been accomplished in the last two decades in this rapidly expanding academic discipline. The first of these sections provides useful introductions to the disciplines of microeconomics, the psychology of judgment and decision, computational neuroscience, and anthropology for scholars and students seeking interdisciplinary breadth. The second section provides an overview of how human and animal preferences are represented in the mammalian nervous systems. Chapters on risk, time preferences, social preferences, emotion, pharmacology, and common neural currencies—each written by leading experts—lay out the foundations of neuroeconomic thought. The third section contains both overview and in-depth chapters on the fundamentals of reinforcement learning, value learning, and value representation. The fourth section, “The Neural Mechanisms for Choice, integrates what is known about the decision-making architecture into state-of-the-art models of how we make choices. The final section embeds these mechanisms in a larger social context, showing how these mechanisms function during social decision-making in both humans and animals. The book provides a historically rich exposition in each of its chapters and emphasizes both the accomplishments and the controversies in the field. A clear explanatory style and a single expository voice characterize all chapters, making core issues in economics, psychology, and neuroscience accessible to scholars from all disciplines. The volume is essential reading for anyone interested in neuroeconomics in particular or decision making in general. Editors and contributing authors are among the acknowledged experts and founders in the field, making this the authoritative reference for neuroeconomics Suitable as an advanced undergraduate or graduate textbook as well as a thorough reference for active researchers Introductory chapters on economics, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology provide students and scholars from any discipline with the keys to understanding this interdisciplinary field Detailed chapters on subjects that include reinforcement learning, risk, inter-temporal choice, drift-diffusion models, game theory, and prospect theory make this an invaluable reference Published in association with the Society for Neuroeconomics—www.neuroeconomics.org Full-color presentation throughout with numerous carefully selected illustrations to highlight key concepts

Psychopharmacology in Cancer Care Book Review:

Depression, anxiety and other quality of life challenges are common in people with cancer, though few oncology practices have dedicated psychiatric consultants familiar with the nuances of psycho-oncology. Written from the combined perspectives of a prescriber and non-prescriber, Psychopharmacology in Cancer Care intends to bridge this common gap in specialized care to facilitate the improved psychotropic treatment of emotional distress in cancer patients. Non-prescribers will learn to observe for potential indications for psychopharmacological interventions, make timely referrals, and monitor the benefits and side effects of medications. Prescribers will benefit from diagnostic and clinical pearls geared towards the unique symptoms and comorbidities of cancer patients. Presented in a digestible format with case reports highlighted throughout, this book will enable non-prescribers and prescribers alike to recognize and discuss the overlap of physical and emotional situations in people with cancer more clearly.
