Description

Cognitive Processing in the Right Hemisphere discusses different theories and concepts involved in the cognitive function of the right hemisphere. After a short introduction to the potential of the right hemisphere, the book goes on to further discuss the subject matter in four parts. Part I discusses cerebral lateralization, cognitive asymmetry, and human consciousness. Part II tackles the normal cognitive function of the right hemisphere, especially its emotional and linguistic functions, as well as its involvement in imagery and affect. Part III examines the effects of impairment of the right hemisphere, and Part IV discusses language rehabilitation through the right hemisphere and covers aphasia therapy and melodic intonation therapy. The text is recommended for neurologists who would like to know in-depth about the functions of the right hemisphere, its underlying processes, the effects of the damages it may incur, and rehabilitation and therapy involving it.
