Review of the causes of psychosis, with diagnostic guides (2011).
- "The Diagnosis of Psychosis is an invaluable reference and clinical guidebook. It belongs on the bookshelf of every practicing physician. Professor Bullmore and Dr Cardinal have created something that has not been attempted for thirty years, since Lishman's landmark, Organic Psychiatry: an extensive, comprehensive and practical compendium of conditions that can manifest with psychosis and how to make an intelligent differential diagnosis. The book is highly readable and logically organized and is filled with academic and clinical pearls about both the exceptionally rare and the all too common clinical disorders in which psychosis is an important part of the clinical challenge." -- Daniel R. Weinberger, Director, Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, USA.
Elementary statistics textbook (as yet unpublished; due 2007) and graduate textbook of analysis of variance (book 1; 2006) for the behavioural sciences researcher.
- "These books are both excellent -- the authors are to be applauded for putting together such a comprehensive, clear and well written introduction to statistics... There is little more that anyone could ask for... There are few books that cover this material with this much clarity." -- Anonymous referee.
Primary data papers and review articles
Review of the neuroscience of addiction (2005).
- "This comprehensive and scholarly review of the tremendous wealth of data concerning links between psychoactive substances with abuse liability, brain function and behaviour provides one of the best treatments of this topic ever written." -- Anthony Phillips, Professor and Director of the UBC Institute of Mental Health, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
- "... an excellent job of reviewing the state of current knowledge." -- Elliot Stein, Professor of Neuroscience, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA.
Lesions of the hippocampus make rats relatively less impaired by delays to reinforcement when learning an instrumental task, compared to shams, but make them more impulsive (less able to choose a delayed reward) (2005).
Demonstration that the nucleus accumbens core makes a specific contribution to learning with delayed reinforcement (2005).
- Featured as a "highly accessed" article for BMC Neuroscience.
- As of June 2010, the journal's second most-viewed article of all time.
Review of prefrontal cortical contributions to executive and cognitive functions in rodents (2004).
- Featured in the top 25 "most downloaded" section of Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews into 2010.
- Citation classic (≥300 citations on ISI).
Investigation of the contribution of the anterior cingulate cortex to Pavlovian conditioning, demonstrating its role in selecting amongst similar stimuli differentially associated with reward (2003).
Demonstration that dopamine in the nucleus accumbens contributes specifically to the learning, in addition to the performance, of behaviour based on stimulus–reward associations (2002).
Review of the contribution of the amygdala, ventral striatum (nucleus accumbens), and prefrontal cortex to emotion and motivation (2002).
- "The authors present a comprehensive review of the studies about conditioning. This review parses the processes of classical and instrumental conditioning and roposes which brain structures might correspond to each of the processes. This study is an excellent bridge between neuroscience and animal psychology." -- Kenji Matsumoto and Keiji Tanaka, RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan, in Current Opinion in Neurobiology (2004) 14: 178.
- "... an extensive review of the contributions of these brain regions to performance in a wide range of learning tasks thought to reveal learning about the affective value of environmental stimuli." -- Peter Holland and Michela Gallagher, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA, in Current Opinion in Neurobiology (2004) 14: 148.
