This book is a comprehensive review of the neuropsychology of emotion and the neural mechanisms underlying emotional processing.
The book is divided into five sections, beginning with an introduction summarizing each chapter and presenting future research directions. Subsequent sections include Background and General Techniques, Theoretical Perspectives, Emotional Disorders, and Clinical Implications. The book draws on studies using behavioral paradigms, the brain lesion approach, neurological and psychiatric disorders, and neuroimaging. A unique feature of the book is that it provides treatment and rehabilitation interventions for individuals with emotional processing deficits. This authoritative volume will be an important resource for neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, speech-language pathologists, neuroscientists, psychiatrists, neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, and their students and trainees.
