Editorial Reviews

This text provides a synthesis of theories, concepts, and experimental findings regarding the neuropsychology of attention. The volume is divided into three parts. Part I reviews the basic concepts necessary to neuropsychological considerations, culminating in the presentation of a theoretical framework of attention. In Part II, this theoretical attentional framework is considered with regard to neuropsychological disturbances of attention. Part III departs from clinical neuropsychology to consider factors that must be examined in order to specify the neuropsychological parameters underlying attention. Annotation c.
