Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric disease that involves profound changes in mood accompanied by severe changes in feelings, thoughts and behaviors wherein emotions can move quickly from a deep depression to excessive excitement without apparent reason. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the symptoms, management and risk factors of bipolar disorder.

Topics include face emotion processing deficits in pediatric bipolar disorder; understanding bipolar disorder from clinical expression to therapeutic strategies; brain-derived neurotrophic factors and neurocognitive profiles in the psychosis spectrum; understanding lived experience and personal recovery in people with bipolar disorder; computerized self-management in bipolar disorder; prescription drug Memantine in the long-term prophylaxis of treatment-resistant bipolar mood disorders; P11 expression and PET as potential biomarkers for bipolar disorder; and neurocognitive impairment in bipolar disorder.
