Description

Topics in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychology provides information pertinent to neuropsychology and behavioral neurology. This book serves as a guide to those caring for patients with disorders of higher cortical function. Organized into 18 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the classes of disorders of higher cortical function according to major behavioral disturbance. This text then presents the various classification schemes for aphasic syndromes. Other chapters consider the multidimensional process of the analysis of various speech disorders, including dysprosody, dysarthria, hysteria, anomia, and aphasia. This book discusses as well the various forms of alexia, including pure alexia, alexia, alexia with agraphia, and frontal alexia. The final chapter deals with stroke and other brain disorders. This book is a valuable resource for neurologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, neurology residents, speech pathologists, and rehabilitation medicine specialists. Readers who are interested in the study of the disorders of the higher cortical function will also find this book useful.
