Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Narinder Kapur has expanded the concept of paradoxical functional facilitation to cover many areas in neurology, neuroscience and neurorehabilitation, assembling a diverse and comprehensive group of world-class experts to explore the concept of paradox in many different disciplines. Their experience and ideas are of fundamental importance and deserve close attention from all who deal with disorders of brain function, so that we may focus on the uniqueness of the individual and their positive potentials, rather than thinking solely in terms of disorder.' Oliver Sacks, Columbia University Medical Center

'… a refreshingly thoughtful, informative and provocative view of neuroscience that challenges the reader to consider and appreciate the brain in novel ways. It is a truly fascinating read.' Eleanor A. Maguire, University College London

'… a fascinating tour of the unexpected - the disorders, anomalies and paradoxes that are part of the human condition and that yield insights about the abnormal brain and normal brain function. The extraordinary range of examples and case studies assures that every reader will find material that is novel, informative and absorbing.' Larry R. Squire, University of California, San Diego
