Overview

This reference text provides an insightful and unified synthesis of cognitive neuroscience and behavioral neurology. The strong clinical emphasis and outstanding illustrations will provide neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and psychologists with a solid foundation to the major neurobehavioral syndromes. With backgrounds in behavioral neurology, functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience, the two authors are in an ideal position to cover the anatomy, genetics, physiology, and cognitive neuroscience underlying these disorders. Their emphasis on therapy makes the book a "must read" for anyone who cares for patients with cognitive and behavioral disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Laatsch, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides an current view of brain anatomy and function with an emphasis on imaging and treatment. One chapter reviews functional imaging in detail and throughout the book images are provided to illustrate neurological conditions. Treatment options are described in detail and tables illustrate the diversity of pharmacological treatment.
Purpose: The authors review and update classic neurobehavioral topics with an emphasis on the individual patient and how a specific neurological condition impacts everyday function. This is a worthwhile and unique objective. The patient descriptions, provided throughout the book, are thoughtful and insightful, helping to maintain the reader's interest.
Audience: The book is educational within a range of professions including neurologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists. It provides a valuable sourcebook for psychologists interested in neurological conditions.
Features: The book is comprehensive and includes a very interesting chapter on the right hemisphere and consciousness. Two mental status examinations are provided in the first chapter, which give beginning neurologists an opportunity to practice their skills of examination. The summary tables of neuropsychological tests, descriptions of neurological conditions, and treatments within the book help the reader become quickly familiar with new topics. The numerous images provided in every chapter are a visual, innovative way of illustrating brain-behavior relationships.
Assessment: This book is useful within many disciplines. The quality and comprehensive nature of the material make it a valuable addition to the library of practicing neurologists and neuropsychologists.
