  • Neuroscientific Basis and Practical Applications
    3rd Edition
  • Stephen M. Stahl
    University of California, San Diego
  • Illustrated by Nancy Muntner
  • Paperback | ISBN-13: 9780521673761

Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology has established itself as the preeminent source of education and information in its field. This much-expanded third edition relies on advances in neurobiology and recent clinical developments to explain the concepts underlying drug treatment of psychiatric disorders. New neurotransmitter systems; theories on schizophrenia; clinical advances in antipsychotic and antidepressant therapy; coverage of attention deficit disorder and drug abuse; and new coverage of sleep disorders, chronic pain, and disorders of impulse control. The fully revised text is complemented with many new, instructive and entertaining illustrations, their captions may be used independent of the main text for a rapid introduction to the field or for review. This edition will be indispensable for students, scientists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals, enabling them to master the complexities of psychopharmacology and to plan treatment approaches based on current knowledge.

- Extended coverage of bipolar disorders, sleep disorders, attention deficit disorder, Alzheimer's, drug abuse, new drug combinations
- Heavily illustrated throughout with excellent, eye-catching, clear color diagrams
- Principles for the use of psychopharmacologic drugs are more evidence-based than ever in the 3rd Edition

Principles of Digital Communication

  • Robert G. Gallager
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Hardback | ISBN-13: 9780521879071
  • GBP £37.50

The renowned communications theorist Robert Gallager brings his lucid writing style to the study of the fundamental system aspects of digital communication for a one-semester course for graduate students. With the clarity and insight that has characterized his teaching and earlier textbooks, he develops a simple framework and then combines this with careful proofs to help the reader understand modern systems and simplified models in an intuitive yet precise way. A strong narrative and links between theory and practice reinforce this concise, practical presentation. The book begins with data compression for arbitrary sources, Gallager then describes how to modulate the resulting binary data for transmission over wires, cables, optical fibers, and wireless channels. Analysis and intuitive interpretations are developed for channel noise models, followed by coverage of the principles of detection, coding, and decoding. The various concepts covered are brought together in a description of wireless communication, using CDMA as a case study.

- Expands the concepts from simple models, combining careful proofs and intuitive ideas
- Links the basic theory with engineering practice, providing a wealth of insights that can be applied later
- Contains numerous worked examples and homework problems to aid understanding. Solutions for problems are available for instructors only at
- Covers the fundamentals of digital communication with a lecture-style exposition
