  • Guy M. Goodwin, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford and the Past-President of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) joins the editor team
  • The list of sections and chapter topics has been completely reorganized in order to follow the "lifespan approach" to management of mental disorders and to eliminate repetition/overlap
