Getting Started with Books

The boxes below contain some of the library's relevant books on each CNS disorder covered in this course. The general books cover multiple disorders. A good place to start when studying CNS disorders is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), currently in its 5th edition. This manual gives overviews of various disorders along with diagnostic criteria and risk factors for each.
