Description

The book is written for recently-trained neuropsychology practitioners and PhD students in clinical psychology who are preparing for careers in neuropsychology. But it should also appeal to experienced clinicians who need a primer on neuropsychological assessment.

The field of clinical neuropsychology has grown substantially since the first edition of Essentials of Neuropsychological Assessment was published in 1987. While retaining much of its original structure, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded.

Chapter 5-- ""The Neuropsychological Examination""--has been broken into three separate chapters that focus on specific neuropsychological batteries. And three new chapters on brain imaging, neuroanatomy, and cross-cultural issues in neuropsychology have been added. The resulting new edtion is a substantial expansion upon the earlier one.
