Key Features

  • A new and revised edition of one of the classic textbooks of neuropsychology.
  • Neuropsychological abnormalities are described in terms of the function or dysfunction of the lobes of the brain, in contrast to the cognitive approach of most competing books.
  • Clearly written introductory chapters on the anatomy of the brain and on neurology - very useful for clinical psychology trainees and psychology students.
  • Clearly discussed clinical case histories illustrate the neuropsychological assessment section.
  • Final chapter places the psychoanatomical approach in the context of other disciplines such as cognitive neuropsychology.
