A dictionary of neuropsychology

Front Cover
Springer-Verlag, 1989 - Psychology - 325 pages
The Dictionary of Neuropsychology is a cross-referenced, alphabetical listing of terms, common medical abbreviations, diseases, symptoms, syndromes, brain structures and locations, and test instruments used in neuropsychology and their neuropsychological interpretations. Neuropsychological concepts and tests are defined and described as to applications in evaluation and treatment. Common medical terms and abbreviations are defined to assist hospital therapists. Most topics are referenced to their original sources to ease the job of researchers. This book is a compendium of current findings and knowledge from the burgeoning field of neuropsychology. It will probably be most useful to practicing neuropsychologists, but professionals in other disciplines such as neurology, psychiatry, rehabilitation therapy, and other related fields will find quick referencing to specific topics quite helpful. To keep pace with the tremendous advances in the field, the book has been updated for this revised second printing.
