Neuropsychiatry, in a narrow definition, concerns itself with brain disorders appearing both under a neurological and psychiatric aspect. Its study must be encouraged in view of the fact that some of these disorders are currently in full development, as well as because their doctrinal value is considerable regarding the elucidation of the material support of primary psychiatric disorders. Generally speaking, neuropsychiatry is a discipline taking place at half level between the lesion and its clinical expression whose object is to bring together these two levels. Its future is secure in that nothing will ever prevent the application - if reasonnable - to mental disorders, of new exploratory methods of the brain steming from neurosciences. © 2003 Elsevier SAS.
