This fully revised new edition covers the range of neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with stroke, including cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disorders such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis. Since the last edition there has been an explosion of published literature on this topic and the book provides a comprehensive, systematic, and cohesive review of this new material. There is growing recognition among a wide range of clinicians and allied healthcare staff that poststroke neuropsychiatric syndromes are both common and serious. Such complications can have a negative impact on recovery and even survival; however, there is now evidence suggesting that pre-emptive therapeutic intervention in high-risk patient groups can prevent the initial onset of the conditions. This opportunity for primary prevention marks a huge advance in the management of this patient population. This book should be read by all those involved in the care of stroke patients, including psychiatrists, neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, and nurses. Robert Robinson is a Paul W. Penningroth Professor and Head, Department of Psychiatry; Roy J. and Lucille A., Carver College of Medicine, The University of Iowa, IA, USA.
