Overview

Recent years have seen exciting advances in our understanding of the human frontal lobes and their role in diverse cognitive processes, social behaviors, and psychiatric disorders. This volume brings together current research on these important regions of the brain, examining their functions in both health and disease. Significant findings on anatomy, chemistry, and physiology are first presented. Next, chapters address such neuropsychological functions as working memory, attention, inhibition, idea and word generation, and language, tracing their links to the frontal lobes and describing new and established approaches to assessment and testing. Proceeding to clinical manifestations of pathology, contributors examine the impact upon the frontal lobes of tumors, trauma, and various neurological diseases, and explore the role of frontal lobe dysfunction in psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and antisocial behavior.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nestor M. Ivkov, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a monograph on the human frontal lobes.
Purpose: It presents both scientific foundations of neuropsychology and clinical neurology, and neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology in a thorough way. This book represents the state of the art in current frontal lobe research.
Audience: It is dedicated to neuropsychiatrists and neuropsychologists, as well as neurologists and researchers in the field of neuroscience.
Features: All the basic sciences relevant to the CNS research have been covered well in this book. These include anthropology, genetics, and even philosophy to some extent. Detailed physiology of the frontal lobe and its correlating clinical pathology are provided. A discussion of the evolution of the frontal lobes is very impressive; its conclusions are far reaching. The graphics are somewhat too simple.
Assessment: This first book in a new series brings a very comprehensive review of the state of the art in frontal lobe neuroscience. Intellectually challenging, it presents various aspects of a big mystery called the frontal lobe. We are still far away from the answers to the questions asked in this book, but I am pretty sure we will have an updated edition of it very soon.
From the Publisher

"This impressive tome is dedicated to the memory of D. Frank Benson, a remarkable clinician who focused much of his formidable acumen on deciphering the often cryptic influence of the frontal lobes upon human behavior. Well organized and comprehensive, the book is a worthy continuation of Dr. Benson's lifelong work. It will prove a valuable reference for any clinician interested in human behavior." --Artiss L. Powell, MD, Department of Neurology, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

"This is a significant, and practical, book." --Donald T. Stuss, PhD, Director, Rotman Research Institute; Vice-President Research, Baycrest Center for Geriatric Care; Professor of Psychology, Medicine (Rehabilitation Medicine), University of Toronto, Ontario

This is the first volume in a new series intended for scientists and practitioners in all the disciplines that address brain-behavior relationships. Providing a contemporary summary of recent advances in frontal lobe structure and function in health and disease, 34 contributions are grouped in sections on frontal lobe neuroanatomy, neurochemistry and neurophysiology, neuropsychological functions, and diseases of the frontal lobes (neurologic and psychiatric). Authors include clinicians, scientists, psychiatrists, and cognitive psychobiologists. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

"The introductory sections of the text illustrate the breadth of knowledge of the editors....This revised text has successfully managed to capture the significant advances since original publication almost a decade ago. It has adopted a strongly evidence-based model to inform the reader of key concepts in the neurosciences and their relationship to clinical practice. This emphasis provides an excellent illustration of the benefits of the scientist-practitioner model. As such, I believe it will be of particular interest to clinicians and health professionals working with adults with neurological and psychiatric conditions."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

"The editors, Miller and Cummings, have assembled an impressive list of contributors for self-sufficient chapters yet were able to maintain fluidity in flow and consistency in organization....A standard reference for a broad audience. Whereas this book is certainly worthy of such consideration as a standard reference on the frontal lobes, the book's broad accessibility also allows its application as a comprehensive review for scholars in the basic and clinical neurosciences alike. The Human Frontal Lobes belongs on the bookshelf of any serious scholar of the basic neurosciences, behavioral psychology, neurology, neuropsychology, or psychiatry."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology

"This book is destined to become a classic reference and to have readers eagerly anticipating the next edition. The book not only summarizes what we do know about the frontal lobes but also brings to the forefront many questions still remaining....A book that provides an intellectual pleasure cruise and is deserving of a prominent place on neuroscientists' bookshelves."--Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology
The New England Journal of Medicine

"Bruce Miller and Jeffrey Cummings have done a fine job in drawing together the disparate strands of current scientific knowledge that are allowing us to begin to understand this most integrative part of the brain and its particular concern with abstract subject matters....Heartily recommended to anyone interested in this daunting and emerging area of neuroscience."--The New England Journal of Medicine
