Biomedical Analyses of Depression

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents excerpts from Manic-Depressive Illness (1990) by Frederick Goodwin and Kay Redfield Jamison. The book is regarded by some as the definitive volume, from a biomedical perspective, on every aspect of clinical treatment, theory, and research relating to unipolar and bipolar affective disorder. The authors adhere to Kraepelin's category of manic-depressive illness to denote the range of recurrent affective disorders, including unipolar depression and unipolar mania as well as bipolar manic-depressive conditions.

Keywords: Frederick Goodwin; Kay Redfield Jamison; manic-depressive illness; bipolar affective disorder
