Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a concise, well-written introduction to cognitive assessment at the bedside.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide enough detail to allow physicians to do and interpret bedside cognitive assessment.
Audience: This book is aimed at neurologists and psychiatrists who are active clinically who do not have special expertise in cognitive assessment.
Features: This book provides details on cognitive assessment as well as adequate neuroanatomical background to allow interpretation of findings. The book also includes illustrative case studies as well as descriptions of standardized neuropsychological tests. Because the author is British, some of the tests will be unfamiliar to U.S. physicians.
Assessment: This is a practical and useful book designed to be a cognitive assessment handbook for use at the bedside. Medical students, neurology and psychiatry residents, and neurologists and psychiatrists will find it useful.
