About this book


Brain Imaging in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Neuroscience Ronald Cohen, editor The question “How does the mind work?” is an enduring one, with new answers appearing on a regular basis. Particularly significant developments in cognition and behavior research are coming from neuroimaging, a vital source of new studies on the role of the brain in health behavior. Brain Imaging in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Neuroscience presents in depth the latest clinical and research applications of neuroimaging, surveying frequently used methods (among them fMRI, MRS, perfusion and diffusion imaging) and their uses in understanding brain behavior and pathology. Featuring chapters on specific disorders such as AIDS-related complications, Alzheimer’s disease, and stroke, and behavior medicine issues such as pain, substance abuse, and fatigue, this timely volume gives clinicians a wide-angle look at innovations with the potential to transform psychological and psychiatric practice. Brain Imaging in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Neuroscience: • Describes a variety of structural and functional neuroimaging methods. • Discusses clinical strengths and limitations of these methods. • Offers current neuroimaging-derived findings on key topics in clinical neuroscience and behavioral medicine. • Reviews evidene regarding the use of neuroimaging in assessing specific brain and behavioral dysfunctions. • Considers how imaging methods can be combined to understand the relationships between brain structure, pathophysiology, and function. • Suggests areas for future research. The scope and detail of Brain Imaging in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Neuroscience make it an essential reference not only for those specializing in these fields, but for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and health providers as well.

About the editors

Ronald Cohen, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown Medical School and The Miriam Hospital and Director of Neuropsychology at The Miriam Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. Cohen is an active researcher in clinical and cognitive neuroscience with over 50 publications. His research interests include the study of brain-behavior relationships, particularly with respect to attention, timing, and executive functioning. His clinical research interests include the neural bases of violence, cardiovascular disease influences on neurocognitive functioning, and Alzheimer's and related dementia. Recent work has been initiated to examine neurobehavioral effects of brain nicotinic function. Cohen is actively involved in the training of interns and postdoctoral fellows.
