Mood genes : hunting for origins of mania and depression by Samuel H Barondes( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We know that many physical characteristics are determined by genes. But do genes also affect mental characteristics, such as the way we feel? Can abnormalities in specific genes lead to mental disorders? And, if so, can these genes actually be identified and their discovery put to use in prevention and treatment? In this book, leading psychiatrist and biological researcher Samuel Barondes answers these questions by focusing on manic-depressive illness - a common and dramatic mood disorder characterized by wild swings from the most euphoric of highs to the darkest of lows. Because this disease tends to run in families, it has long been suspected that specific genes may be responsible. As Barondes and his colleagues try to find these mood genes, they hope to develop an entirely new way of understanding manic-depression
Molecules and mental illness by Samuel H Barondes( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mental illness overwhelms its millions of victims with a variety of disabling symptoms, including extreme fearfulness, depression, and inability to distinguish the imagined from the real. In the late nineteenth century many psychiatrists, including the young Sigmund Freud, were convinced these disorders were biological in origin. But when Freud concluded that the knowledge and methods of that time were too limited to attack the complex problems of mental illness, he turned his attention to exploring its psychological aspects, setting a course that psychiatry would follow for many decades. Today, supported by the huge growth of molecular, genetic, and cellular research, the biological approach to psychiatry is making tremendous strides. New tools for identifying the genetic causes of various psychiatric disorders have been developed, and the effects of drugs on mental processes can now be more accurately monitored. As a result, we are poised to achieve significant new levels of success in alleviating the suffering of the mentally ill. In this wide-ranging and timely volume, Samuel Barondes describes the crucial role biological research is playing in modern psychiatry. A leading biologist and psychiatrist, Dr. Barondes explains the essential principles of human genetics, molecular biology, neuroscience, and psychopharmacology that are helping scientists and practitioners understand the biological roots of mental illness. He then describes ongoing advances in biological psychiatry, including the most recent pharmacological research into treatments for serious mood disturbances, extreme levels of anxiety, and schizophrenia. Biologically oriented psychiatrists know that we are a long way from a complete understanding of serious mental disorders, and that drug treatments now being used are far from perfect. But as this enlightening volume demonstrates, there is much cause for hope for the victims of these grave disorders and their families
Better than Prozac : creating the next generation of psychiatric drugs by Samuel H Barondes( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every day millions of people take psychiatric drugs. In Better Than Prozac Samuel Barondes considers the benefits and limitations of Prozac, Ritalin, Valium, Risperdal, and other widely used medications, and the ways that superior ones are being created." "In tracing the early history of these drugs Barondes describes the accidental observations that led to their discovery, and their great impact on our view of mental illness. He goes on to show how their unexpected therapeutic effects were attributed to their influence on neurotransmitters that carry signals in the brain, and how this guided their improvement."
