"Many of the techniques of quantitative cognitive science hold promise for aiding individuals who have problems in living. Increasingly, these studies are appearing in mainstream clinical-science and clinical-practice journals. The contributors to this volume showcase fertile clinical applications of quantitative cognitive science in charting abnormalities among groups and individuals; they also show how readers can apply these techniques in their own research, assessment, and practice. The contributors are cognitive scientists who have formally modeled clinically relevant aspects of cognitive functioning among special populations as well as clinical scientists who have adapted techniques of quantitative cognitive science to advance their clinical research and assessment. The chapters feature findings from studies of specific clinical populations and disorders. They also present quantitative techniques and associated data-acquisition methods that have general application. Much clinically significant information would be untapped but for the application of the kinds of formal task-performance models detailed in this book. The paradigms and models described are ideally suited for computer-assisted equipment and can be used to explore the neurocircuitry of assessed functions through functional magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiological technology. This cutting-edge collection will have lasting impact on cognitive explorations of clinical problems"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
