ABSTRACT
The article presents guidelines for neurologists to help them recognize and evaluate ordered mental states. The overlap between neurology and psychiatry should be obvious, given the two disciplines' shared concerns with disorders of the human nervous system and the effect of these disorders on such fundamental aspects of our species as thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, and feelings. Nevertheless there is quite a division in terms of training, specialists, medical or otherwise, and service structures for patients who have disorders of the brain or mind. These structural and professional divisions can arguably lead to difficulties for patients accessing appropriate assessments and treatments.
