Movement Disorders in Psychiatry examines the complex interface between movement disorders and psychiatry, addressing both specific movement disorders in psychiatry and behavioral syndromes associated with diseases categorized as movement disorders. This volume provides an overview of clinical definitions and pathophysiology of movement disorders and reviews specific movement disorders associated with drugs of abuse and psychotropic medications, including tardive dyskinesia, akathisia, and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. Further chapters discuss movement disorders seen in primary psychiatric disorders, such as autism and schizophrenia, as well as diseases with concurrent movement disorder and behavioral symptoms, such as Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, frontotemporal dementia, Tourette's syndrome, and autoimmune conditions. Movement Disorders in Psychiatry offers an in-depth perspective on movement disorders with treatment and practical management strategies for related challenges in clinical practice.
