Overview

"Clinical Neuropsychology comprehensively reviews the major neurobehavioral disorders associated with brain dysfunction. Since the third edition appeared in 1993 there have been many advances in the understanding and treatment of neurobehavioral disorders. This edition, like prior editions, describes the classical signs and symptoms associated with the major behavioral disorders such as aphasia, agraphia, alexia, amnesia, apraxia, neglect, executive disorders and dementia. It also discusses advances in assessing, diagnosing and treating these disorders and it addresses the brain mechanisms underlying these deficits. A multi-authored text has the advantage of having authorities write about the disorders in which they have expertise. The fourth edition adds new authors and five entirely new chapters on phonologic aspects of language disorders, syntactic aspects of language disorders, lexical-semantic aspects of language disorders, anosognosia, hallucinations and related conditions. This is the most comprehensive edition of this text to date. It will be of value to clinicians, investigators, and students from a variety of disciplines, including neurology, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, and speech pathology."

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text describing all the major neurobehavioral disorders of adults, including aphasia, alexia, agraphia, agnosia, apraxia, amnesic disorders, dementia, and others. In addition to providing a detailed clinical description, the contributing authors discuss methods of diagnosis and treatment, and consider the pathophysiology and neurological mechanisms underlying these disorders. For this edition (2nd ed., 1985), several chapters have been completely rewritten, and the rest extensively revised in light of recent developments. A new chapter on the neuropsychology of schizophrenia has been added. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"...the most comprehensive version of this classic text to date. As always, among its authors are some of the most distinguished scientist-practitioners in their respective areas. ...the changes in this edition have made it more representative of current conceptualizations of neurocognitive functioning and disorder than past editions, and it provides quality information about specific aspects of neuropsychological disorder not found elsewhere. This classic continues to deserve a prominent place on the neuropsychologist's shelf." —Applied Neuropsychology

" . . . this fourth edition of a classic text is a very readable and contemporary mix of old (but updated) favourites, completely new chapters on topics also found in the previous edition, and chapters on completely new topics. In the tradition of books published by Oxford University Press, it is a beautiful book . . . I have no compunction in recommending that any serious student of clinical neuropsychology, whether new to the game or near retirement, takes out a second mortgage if necessary to purchase this book for their own shelves." —Jenni Ogden in JINS

From reviews of the Third Edition:

"...It is without question, the most important source for detailed descriptions of the classical syndromes."—Annals of Neurology

"Without doubt, Clinical Neuropsychology continues to offer excellent summaries of the classical neuropsychological syndromes. I know of no other single source that offers the breadth and depth of coverage afforded to these topics....Clinical Neuropsychology (3rd edition) remains unequaled in providing rich yet encyclopedic descriptions of various neuropsychological syndromes. There are enough important updates and revisions in this new edition that those who already own the second edition should strongly consider adding the third edition to their bookshelves...."—ontemporary Psychology

"The editors have brought together an excellent group of 34 cognitive neuroscientists...The fourth edition has been revised and expanded to reflect the gains in cognitive neuroscience since the prior edition. Old chapters have been updated, and new chapters added, including one on the pharmacotherapy of cognitive disorders and three on specifics of language processing. Those who own previous editions will want to add this new edition to their library. A well-written, comprehensive, and valuable resource for clinicians, investigators, and students in the fields of cognitive neuroscience, communication disorders, neurology, psychology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medicine."—JAMA, 2003; 290:2333-2334
