Brain Imaging in Affective Disorders


Reviewing discoveries in anatomical, functional, and neurochemical in vivo and pharmacological studies, this volume consolidates material on chemical imaging with SPECT and PET radiotracer studies, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) views of the human brain. Edited by leading brain imaging researchers in the field, with contributions from thirty-four specialists, the book provides information on structural, functional, and neurotransmitter abnormalities in affective disorders. It covers the application of imaging techniques to study key neurotransmitter systems for the monitoring of treatment responses and the development of new treatments.
