Overview

This thoroughly revised new edition of a classic book provides a clinically inspired but scientifically guided approach to the biological foundations of human mental function in health and disease. It includes authoritative coverage of all the major areas related to behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry. Each chapter, written by a world-renowned expert in the relevant area, provides an introductory background as well as an up-to-date review of the most recent developments. Clinical relevance is emphasized but is placed in the context of cognitive neuroscience, basic neuroscience, and functional imaging. Major cognitive domains such as frontal lobe function, attention and neglect, memory, language, prosody, complex visual processing, and object identification are reviewed in detail. A comprehensive chapter on behavioral neuroanatomy provides a background for brain-behavior interactions in the cerebral cortex, limbic system, basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebullum. Chapters on temperolimbic epilepsy, major psychiatric syndromes, and dementia provide in-depth analyses of these neurobehavioral entities and their neurobiological coordinates. Changes for this second edition include the reflection throughout the book of the new and flourishing alliance of behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry with cognitive science;major revision of all chapters; new authorship of those on language and memory; and the inclusion of entirely new chapters on psychiatric syndromes and the dementias. Both as a textbook and a reference work, the second edition of Principles of Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology represents an invaluable resource for behavioral neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, cognitive and basic neuroscientists, geriatricians, physiatrists, and their students and trainees.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the second, and completely revised, edition of a superb textbook on behavioral neurology.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce the key principles of behavioral neurology.
Audience: The intended audience is neurologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists.
Features: The text is divided into 10 chapters, four of which are contributed by the editor, the other six by outstanding authorities in behavioral neurology. Topics covered include behavioral neuroanatomy, neuropsychological assessment, memory, attention, aphasia, epilepsy, dementia, and psychiatric syndromes.
Assessment: This is a truly wonderful book. The editor solidifies his reputation as one of a handful of superb behavioral neurologists. He combines creative and innovative ideas with a lucid and pleasurable writing style. The book is not only pacesetting intellectually but truly pleasurable to read. The editor's first chapter on behavioral neuroanatomy is a "tour de force" and more than worth the price of admission. This is a "must have" book for anyone with even the slightest interest in cognitive neurology or behavioral neurology.
