Summary
This book presents the latest neuroscience and physiological explanations behind the major diagnostic categories of mental illness-including schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and addiction-and explains the physiological bases that underlie traditional pharmaceutical treatment interventions. Crucially, it integrates current information about brain function with new research on immunology, offering a research-based rationale for viewing the mind and the body as an integrated system. The new information on the physiological bases for behavior explains how lifestyle interventions related to die
