Description

Compiling reviews of the recent literature is a long-established tradition in the laboratory and clinical sciences, providing a useful and timely summary of advances in the field. Neuropsychology has matured as a science and profession to the point where a like effort to summarize the status and direction of the field is needed. The authors of chapters in the second volume of Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice are authorities in the subjects they review; they offer investigators, practitioners, and students an overview of the important developments in neuropsychology that cannot be found from perusal of journals alone. Interest in the reviews collected in this volume is likely to go beyond the discipline of neuropsychology and will extend to those working in the science of brain-behavior relationships, the study of disease and injury as they affect brain function, and the rehabilitation of individuals who have suffered brain injury. A unique and valuable resource, Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice provides the means for clinicians and researchers to acquire a sound, up-to-date perspective on important advances and future directions in the field.
