Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Pharmacology explores the neuropsychiatric consequences of congenital and acquired brain lesions and their appropriate pharmacologic treatment. The clinical problems addressed – practically, though always in a theoretical framework – are the severe behavioral disorders of children, of retarded people, of people with epilepsy, and of victims of traumatic brain injury. Topics examined include the neuropsychiatric and delayed neurobehavioral sequelae of traumatic brain injury, inadvertent drug effects, self-injurious behavior, Cornelia De Lange syndrome, autism, tardive dyskinesia, and childhood hyperactivity.
