Psychiatric Dictionary 8th ed


Robert J. Campbell
Oxford University Press
2003 – Eighth Edition – 701 pages – hardback

The eighth edition of Campbell’s Psychiatric Dictionary continues to pursue its goal of keeping the reader abreast of new developments in psychiatry. Technological advances have enabled researchers to trace neurotransmission, to uncover the mechanisms of drug action, and to monitor brain activity in real time. Psychiatry has increasingly embraced the neurosciences in studies of learning and memory, sleep and dreaming, and behavioral genetics. There has been cross-fertilization with different fields – among them pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, and experimental and developmental psychology – and many terms from those disciplines have been incorporated into the Dictionary.
