About the Authors
  • Memory complaints are a frequent feature of psychiatric disorder, even in the absence of organic disease. In this practical reference for the clinician, first published in 2000, German Berrios and John Hodges lead an international team of eminent psychiatrists, behavioural neurologists and clinical psychologists to focus on the psychiatric and organic aspects of memory disorders from the perspective of the multidisciplinary memory clinic. These disorders include organic syndromes such as the dementias, the amnesic syndrome and transient amnestic states, and also psychiatric aspects of memory disorders in the functional psychoses. Among the specific topics reviewed are the paramnesias, conditions such as déjà vu, flashbulb and flashback memories, and the problems of recovered, false and feigned memories. Throwing light on established conditions, and also introducing two new syndromes, this book makes a major contribution to the understanding and clinical management of memory disorders in psychiatry, neuropsychology and other disciplines.

    •  Written by an international team of eminent clinicians, psychiatrists and psychologists
    • Emphasises the psychiatric and clinical aspects of memory problems
    • Up-to-the-minute examination of the field, based on clinical observation and including the identification of two new memory syndromes

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is a book which … approaches memory as a clinical subject with a breadth and comprehensiveness unlikely to be found elsewhere. It is to be strongly recommended, not least for those already engaged or planning to set up memory clinics and to psychiatrists with a desire to learn more about higher mental function .' Journal of Neurolology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry

    'This book offers the reader a collection of very well-integrated, written and referenced overviews, several of which throw new light on established as well as less established disturbances of memory. It is highly recommended as a fascinating textbook for the memory interested student of psychiatry, neurology or clinical psychology and as a practical reference volume for the clinician.' Acta Psychiatric Scandinavian

    … this is a solid book.' Addiction Biology

    '… concise up-to-date evidence-based explanations of the basis of primary, secondary, long-term memory and meta-memory.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

    '… I was impressed by Greene and Hodges who take the reader clearly through the clinical process of making a diagnosis of dementia. And insight in dementia is covered in some considerable and interesting detail.' John Morton, Applied Cognitive Psychology

    '… the book is replete with valuable information and resources … the editors have provided a fitting companion for the clinician looking for a memory aid.' Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
