From The CriticsReviewer: Arnold J. Capute, MD, MPH(Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine)
Description: This interesting and timely new book on neuroimaging consists of well-written chapters by a variety of experts most knowledgeable about the various neuroimaging techniques that are available for the study of neurodevelopmental and related neurologic entities.
Purpose: This book uses neuroimaging in the application of anatomical and functional neuroimaging procedures as a means of understanding neurodevelopmental disabilities and associated neurologic conditions seen in children.
Audience: It is most appropriate for all health professionals dealing with higher cortical functioning, including neurodevelopmental pediatricians, general pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, radiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, educators, and speech pathologists, including the trainees in these disciplines. This book should be made available to libraries that serve people with developmental disabilities.
Features: This text has sufficient and pertinent, full-color illustrations and figures to assist the reader. The references are extensive, but pertinent and up-to-date.
Assessment: At the midpoint of the "decade of the brain," this book presents the value of various neuroimaging techniques that are presently available for correlating behavior with the neuropathologic, neurochemical, and neurophysiologic underpinnings in entities representing the spectrum of developmental disorders (cerebral dysfunction). It will serve as a valuable text for those professionals who are dealing with entities associated with higher cortical function.
