First published in 1986. The primary purpose of this book is to provide information about the use of medication for several childhood disorders that require long-term treatment. It is the author’s expectation that this information will allow caregivers to make better decisions about the use of medication. This title also examines the importance of evaluating various aspects when medicating a child, including their characteristics, their family situation, and school setting.

Professor Sir Michael Rutter has been, without question, the most influential and renowned child and adolescent psychiatrist of his era, both nationally and internationally. His innovative thinking and research practice has been at the forefront of research into both biological and psychosocial factors influencing child mental health and has established a developmental approach to integrating these different variables within child psychopathology. Rutter's work has also been marked by its collaborative quality with disciplines other than medicine. A remarkable number of his ideas and findings over the years have stood the test of time. This collection of some of Michael Rutter's most influential and important publications has been made with his collaboration. It includes a number of widely quoted papers from early in his career that are not otherwise easy to access, and covers papers representing the whole range of his research activities from psychiatric classification, psychosocial influences and genetic mechanisms through to the myth of adolescent turmoil. The collection contains a complete bibliography of Michael Rutter's publications to date.
The volume will be of keen interest to researchers and clinicians in psychiatry, psychology, and neurology, neuroscientists studying stimulants, and those pursuing development of new drugs to treat ADHD.

Stimulant drugs are widely used in the treatment of ADHD in children and adults. Hundreds of studies over the past 60 years have demonstrated their effectiveness in improving attention span, increasing impulse control, and reducing hyperactivity and restlessness. Despite widespread interest in these compounds, however, their mechanisms of action in the central nervous system have remained poorly understood. Recent advances in the basic and clinical neurosciences now afford the possibility of elucidating these mechanisms. The current volume is the first to bring this expanding knowledge to bear on the central question of why and how stimulants exert their therapeutic effects. The result is a careful, comprehensive, and insightful integration of material by well-known scientists that significantly advances our understanding of stimulant effects and charts a course for future research. Part I presents a comprehensive description of the clinical features of ADHD and the clinical response to stimulants. Part II details the cortical and subcortical neuroanatomy and functional neurophysiology of dopamine and norepinephrine systems with respect to the regulation of attention, arousal, activity, and impulse control and the effects of stimulants on these systems. Part III is devoted to clinical research, including recent studies of neuroimaging, genetics, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of stimulants, effects on cognitive functions, neurophysiological effects in humans with and without ADHD and in non-human primates, and comparison of stimulants and non-stimulants in the treatment of ADHD. Part IV is a masterful synthesis that presents alternative models of stimulant drug action and generates key hypotheses for continued research. The volume will be of keen interest to researchers and clinicians in psychiatry, psychology, and neurology, neuroscientists studying stimulants, and those pursuing development of new drugs to treat ADHD.
