About the book

Anxiety represents an universal phenomenon among mankind, and is known since ancient time. Anxiety belongs to the most frequent symptoms in psychiatry, and takes part in the formation of many other different syndromes. Despite that fact the exact anxiety mechanisms, risk factors, consequences and prognosis, are not properly understood. In other words, anxiety seems to be a multifarious disorder and requires a further elaboration, since in many cases the anxiety patients represent a serious issue for physicians.

The methods of anxiety treatment are different and include pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. The pharmacological drugs include antidepressants, anxiolytics and neuroleptics with different mechanisms of action. Each clinician must choose the right drug for the right patients with anxiety.

The current collective monograph includes the modern data on phenomenology, pathogenesis, and treatment of anxiety disorders. The book is intended for psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists and other specialists who study the anxiety broad phenomena. The book may also help medical students in study of psychiatry.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
