Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book takes on a more important role as being one of the first texts devoted to the neuropsychological processes which underpin the (mostly) decline in human function that accompanies aging. It is an exquisitely and densely packed book which should be recommended on any course, undergraduate or postgraduate, that feels it is germane to either of the title's nouns. Woodruff-Pak's text is an excellent introduction to what may become one of the most important new, emerging fields in human neuropsychology. The literature covered is broad, the writing fluent and the organization of material is well-executed." G. Neil Martin, Middlesex University
