Beschrijving The Bipolar Brain

Bipolar disorder is one of the most common, and disabling, conditions affecting humankind. Each year, millions of individuals struggle with the effects of this illness. Although clinically well recognized for decades, if not centuries, the causes of this condition remain incompletely understood. However, significant technological advances in both neuroimaging and genetic research have revealed clues about the neurophysiological basis of bipolar illness. In this
second edition of The Bipolar Brain, leading experts in neuroimaging and genetics discuss recent discoveries in bipolar disorder that identify the structural, functional and chemical brain changes that seem to underlie this condition, as well as the possible genetic causes of these brain events. New
technologies such as miRNA, cerebral blood flow, and fMRI are presented. Based upon these discussions, the authors then integrate these diverse considerations to develop a specific neurophysiological model of bipolar disorder. This model provides a resource to guide clinicians as they struggle to understand this illness, as well as a guide for future investigations into the causes of bipolar disorder. With this guide in hand, this book will lead to a new framework for understanding bipolar
disorder in order to, ultimately, develop improved therapies for affected individuals and novel strategies to prevent the onset in children at risk for this condition.
