From the Publisher"Lesions of cerebral white matter disrupt distributed neural circuits subserving elementary and higher order behavior causing deficits that fall within the domains of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry. In this detailed and comprehensive monograph, Christopher Filley provides a timely overview of important historical, anatomical, and contemporary imaging approaches to cerebral white matter, and a meticulously crafted and masterful consideration of white matter disorders producing dementia and focal neurobehavioral syndromes. Written with a narrative style that reads effortlessly, this outstanding second edition of Filley's book adds critical clinical relevance to the knowledge of cerebral white matter pathways. It is a welcome and essential guide for neurologists, and for clinical and research cognitive neuroscientists." — Jeremy D. Schmahmann, MD, Professor of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
"If you are neuropsychologist like me, with some familiarity with white matter structure and function based on occasional readings of journal articles and the usual teachings in graduate school, The Behavioral Neurology of White Matter, 2nd Edition, will certainly broaden your perspective and introduce you to new ways of thinking about the ''other half'' of the brain."
— Joseph Sadek, PhD, Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
