"A fantastic and monumental contribution to our field." - Ralph M. Reitan, PhD

"The field of neuropsychology has many specialized books on particular diseases, but there is always a need for a general text to cover the major aspects of neuropsychology from neuroanatomy to assessment to practice issues. This is one such book that attempts to provide comprehensive coverage of the field."


In the last decade, the number of books, courses, training opportunities, and journals dealing with clinical neuropsychology has greatly increased. Demand for a complete reference in the field is growing as practitioners in private practice, the court system, and the medical field continue to make discoveries and advance our knowledge of the brain system and how it affects our everyday lives. In order to address this urgent need, Drs. Horton and Wedding have edited this Third Edition of the classic Neuropsychology Handbook.

In its pages are reviews of all the major areas in which clinical neuropsychologists work:

  • the foundations of clinical neuropsychology
  • brain structure and function
  • neurological disorders
  • psychiatric disorders
  • diagnostic decision-making
  • symptom validity testing
  • neuroimaging
  • behavioral change following traumatic brain injury
  • disability determination
  • rehabilitation planning, and more

Very specialized areas of practice such as clinical neuropsychology with children, clinical neurotoxicology, and neuropsychological assessment in criminal law cases also receive chapters.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: The field of neuropsychology has many specialized books on particular diseases, but there is always a need for a general text to cover the major aspects of neuropsychology from neuroanatomy to assessment to practice issues. This is one such book that attempts to provide comprehensive coverage of the field.
Purpose: This is intended to be an authoritative reference for the field of neuropsychology. It is updated in a third edition after approximately 11 years.
Audience: Although targeted at neuropsychologists, interns and postdoctoral fellows will also find it informative. The editors and contributing authors are well known and accomplished in the field.
Features: The initial chapters on functional neuroanatomy and neurological disorders contain good information, but are on the simplistic end of the spectrum. They do include information about important emerging issues, such as the identification of multiple pathologies in dementia and the prodromal MCI phase. The next chapter title hints at the topic of intelligence, but it actually is quite repetitive of the first chapter, especially given the later chapter on lateralization that covers some of these issues in much more depth. As usual, Dr. Iverson delivers a highly useful chapter on symptom validity assessment that includes information about the major symptom validity tests, construct of malingering, ethical considerations, and sample reports. An introduction to neuroimaging helps to explain this area in a user-friendly manner. Also welcome are the reviews of new tests like the neuropsychological assessment battery, as well as the coverage of multicultural issues and ecological validity in neuropsychological assessment. The utility of the section that discusses particular diseases, however, is questionable since it only covers limited diseases and does so in a cursory fashion. On the plus side, there are many references that reflect current research and conceptualizations in the field.
Assessment: The goal of a comprehensive book is worthwhile, and this one has its merits, but it falls short in some respects. The topics are well chosen, but seem incomplete. On the one hand, it is written at a level that is almost too basic and lacks the depth of books on more specific topics. On the other hand, it also lacks the breadth of other handbooks, such as Neuropsychological Assessment, 4th edition Lezak, Howieson, and Loring (Oxford University Press, 2004) or the clinical usefulness of Clinical Neuropsychology: A Pocket Handbook for Assessment, Snyder and Nussbaum (American Psychological Association, 2005).
School Library Journal

To support neuropsychology's swift clinical development and legal applications, Horton (Psychotherapeutic Treatment Approaches) and Wedding (Behavior and Medicine) have revised and updated this respected field guide. Forty-eight subject specialists contribute 27 essays that are divided into five thematic categories. Highlighted are the fundamental issues, clinical assessments, ethical and practical concerns, exceptional cases, and projected expectations relevant to neuropsychology. Divided into helpful subheadings that facilitate comprehension, each essay is followed by three to five pages of bibliographic references. Intended principally for clinical professionals, this book employs specialized language and field-specific acronyms throughout. Recommended for psychiatric and related medical collections.
