Psychiatry as a Neuroscience, the first of the three books, must be read first because it provides insight into the very reason for being a physician-psychiatrist. The editors brought together 17 authors—eight from the United States, one from Italy, one from Switzerland, one from France, and the rest from the United Kingdom. The nine chapters cover such topics as genetic research in psychiatry, molecular and cellular biology research, brain imaging research, neurophysiological research, neuropsychological research, neurobiology in schizophrenia, biological research in anxiety disorders, and biological research in dementias. These chapters are not for speed-reading, but the rewards are great. I have personally used them as teaching tools.
