The Handbook of Clinical Neuropsychology
The past 30 years have seen the field of clinical neuropsychology grow to become an influential discipline within mainstream clinical psychology and an established component of most professional courses. It remains one of the fastest growing specialities within mainstream clinical psychology, neurology, and the psychiatric disciplines. Substantially updated to take account of these rapid developments, the new edition of this successful handbook provides a practical
guide for those interested in the professional application of neuropsychological approaches and techniques in clinical practice.
With chapters by leading specialists, it demonstrates the contribution that neuropsychological approaches can make to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of brain disorders, as well as addressing the special considerations when treating children and the elderly. As before, the book is divided into 10 sections, covering everything from methodological and conceptual issues, developmental and paediatric neuropsychology, funcional neuroanatomy, and the historical context.
Throughout, the content draws on contemporary neuroscientific techniques, focusing on the methods of functional imaging, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and cognitive rehabilitation. It also provides background information on laboratory and research techniques, as well as
covering relevant neurology and psychiatry.
The book will be essential for trainee neuropsychologists, students and teachers in the clinical and cognitive neurosciences/psychology, neurobiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists.

Remarkably, and marking its distinctiveness from other clinical neuropsychology texts, it goes beyond description to incorporate techniques for ameliorating and managing the functional impact of the disorders. This melding
of theoretical and practical knowledge in neurology, neuropsychology, and neurorehabilitation will make it an essential text for the practising clinician. * Professor Catherine Mateer, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, BC, Canada *
