Halligan, Peter and David, A. S. 2001. Cognitive neuropsychiatry: towards a scientific psychopathology. Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2 (3) , pp. 209-215. 10.1038/35058586

Cognitive neuropsychiatry represents a systematic and theoretically driven approach to explain clinical psychopathologies in terms of deficits to normal cognitive mechanisms. A concern with the neural substrates of impaired cognitive mechanisms links cognitive neuropsychiatry to the basic neurosciences. The emergence of cognitive neuropsychiatry in the 1990s illustrates the growing rapprochement between cognitive neuropsychology, clinical medicine and the neurosciences in addressing common questions about disorders of the mind/brain. In reviewing recent applications, we highlight how this hybrid discipline will make a distinctive contribution to the science of psychopathology.
