The new edition of this basic reference for the practicing clinical and behavioral neuropsychologist and text for graduate student expands its coverage of the major areas in which clinical neuropsychologists work. Specific areas covered include: the foundations of clinical neuropsychology, such as the neuropsychological basic of mental abilities, diagnostic decision-making, and symptom validity testing; neuroimaging; behavioral change following traumatic brain injury; disability determination and rehabilitation planning; clinical neuropsychology with children; clinical neurotoxicology; and, neuropsychological assessment in criminal law cases.This new edition will take its place as a standard reference for professionals and students in the field but should also be of considerable value and interest to other professionals in outlying fields who rely on neuropsychological opinions, such as psychiatrists, neurologists, clinical psychologists, school psychologists, social workers, counselors, and special educators.
