About this item

The second edition of this comprehensive textbook for students of Neuropsychology gives a thorough overview of the complex relationship between brain and behaviour. With an excellent blend of clinical, experimental and theoretical coverage, it draws on the latest research findings from neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, neurochemistry, clinical neuropsychology and neuropsychology to provide students with new insights in this fast moving field.

The book is organised around the main neuropsychological disorders in the areas of perception, executive dysfunction, attention, memory, cerebral asymmetry, language, emotion and consciousness. There is a clear emphasis on bridging the gap between theory and practice with links throughout to clinical issues of both assessment and rehabilitation to build a clear understanding of the application of the theoretical issues. The final section in each chapter illustrates the importance of a more systematic approach to intervention, which takes into account theoretical views of recovery from brain damage.

New to this edition:

  • A new chapter format that includes a "basic topic" section, which contains up-to-date essential knowledge of the topic and a "further topics" section for a more advanced treatment of the area.

  • A new section on neuroscientific approaches to rehabilitation in each chapter to make links between scientific knowledge and clinical treatment.

  • A brand new chapter on consciousness

  • A new full colour layout with increased pedagogical features, including key terms, section summaries, ‘study questions’ and improved presentation of figures and brain diagrams

  • A companion website including related weblinks, guidance on answering the ‘study questions’, and flashcards.

This book will be invaluable for undergraduate students in Neuropsychology and students who wish to take the subject further to the various clinical fields.

The second edition of this comprehensive handbook for students of Neuropsychology gives a thorough overview of the complex relationship between brain and behaviour. Drawing on the latest research findings from neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, neurochemistry and neuropsychology it explores and analyses contemporary models of neuropsychological processes to provide students with new insights into neuropsychology.

The book is organised around the main neuropsychological disorders in the areas of perception, executive dysfunction, attention, memory, cerebral asymmetry, language, movement and consciousness. The emphasis throughout is on bridging the gap between theory and practice, and as such the author provides frequent links to clinical issues of both assessment and rehabilitation to build a clear understanding of the application of the theoretical issues. The final few chapters illustrate the importance of a more systematic approach to intervention, which takes into account theoretical views of recovery from brain damage.

New to this edition:

  • Brand new chapter on Disorders of Consciousness
  • New format to each chapter that includes a basic knowledge section for students new to the subject and a "further topics" section for a more advanced treatment of the area
  • New section in each chapter that provides examples of neuroscientific approaches to rehabilitation.
  • Increased pedagogical features, including key terms, chapter summaries and improved presentation of figures and brain diagrams.

Combing theoretical and clinical issues, the second edition of this through and user-friendly textbook will continue to be essential reading for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of Neuropsychology.
