Overview


There have been enormous advances over the last decade in our understanding of cognitive function, particularly aspects of memory, language and attention, but these have not been made accessible to clinicians. This book aims to incorporate these advances in theory into clinical practice and to provide a practical approach to cognitive valuation at the bedside, based on methods developed at the Cambridge clinic over the past 15 years. Designed primarily for neurologists, psychiatrists and geriatricians in training who require a practical guide to assessing higher mental function, the book will also be of interest to clinical psychologists.

In this long-awaited second edition, John Hodges has substantially re-organized and expanded on the original text. The book includes a new chapter devoted to the Revised Version of the Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination (ACE-R), with a description of its uses and limitations along with normative data. Given the importance of the early detection of dementia a chapter is dedicated to this topic which draws on advances over the past decade. Several new illustrative case histories have also been added and all of the case descriptions have been orientated around the use of the ACE-R in clinical practice.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Daniel B. Hier
This is a concise, well-written introduction to cognitive assessment at the bedside. "The purpose is to provide enough detail to allow physicians to do and interpret bedside cognitive assessment. "This book is aimed at neurologists and psychiatrists who are active clinically who do not have special expertise in cognitive assessment. "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. "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.
