This follow up to the successful Classic Cases in Neuropsychology (1996) brings together in one volume further important case investigations that have shaped the way we think about the relationships between brain, behaviour and cognition. The book includes cases from the rich history of neuropsychology as well as important contemporary case studies in the fields of memory, language and perception. Some of the cases described are rare, some are seminal in the field, many were the first of their type to be described and gave rise to new theories, some are still controversial. As in the first volume, each chapter highlights the relevance of the case for the development of neuropsychology and discusses the theoretical implications of the findings.
