Omtale Neuropsychology
This handbook provides the researcher and clinician with comprehensive coverage of the state of the art in neuropsychology. Drawing on the latest research from neuropsychology, neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive neuropsychology, and modern techniques such as functional neuroimaging, the author provides contemporary models of neuropsychological disorders of perception, attention, memory, language, emotion and movement. The aim of the text is to integrate these different areas by describing the common influences of these functions. Throughout the text, discussion of theoretical models is framed in a clinical context with frequent use of case studies to illustrate the application of theory in the clinical environment. There is information on the clinical management of patients in the area of recovery and rehabilitation with particular emphasis on the importance of a more systematic approach to intervention, which takes into account theoretical views of recovery from brain damage.
