This textbook is updated and revised. The field of clinical neuropsychology has enlarged substantially since the first edition of ""Essentials of Neuropsychological Assessment"" was published in 1987. Countless journals on this topic have appeared in the last 20 years. It includes a new chapter on ""The Neuropsychological Examination"". It also contains three new chapters: Brain imaging; Neuroanatomy; and, Cross-cultural issues in neuropsychology. It is written for recently-trained neuropsychology practitioners and PhD students in clinical psychology, who are preparing for careers in neuropsychology. It appeals to experienced clinicians who need a primer on neuropsychological assessment.
