Reviews

@from:(K.V. Slavin, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine) @qu:(...)Both researchers and clinicians will find information from this volume interesting and stimulating. Written by specialists from six countries, it may serve as a current, up-to-date reference source on the title subject.
An attractive feature of this volume is the wide spectrum of topics covered(...)The book is well illustrated; all chapters are well referenced; the index is large and complete.
With this new volume in the series Progress in Brain Research, the editors give an idea of the current state of research in the area of brain/mind and body interactions. Most neuroscientists, clinicians, and researchers will find plenty of new information, thorough reviews, and original data(...) @source:Doody's Electronic Journal
