The study of memory disorders is typically associated with investigations of the amnesic syndrome. There are, however, however, a wide range of other memory disorders following brain damage and these are becoming increasingly important. In this volume, which is newly available in paperback, experts in the field present a series of individual case histories, each illustrating a particular dimension of memory impairment. In addition, case studies of rehabilitation, including a unique autobiographica study are included. Collectively the book enables the reader to become familiar with important developments in the study of memory disorders and, in particular, indicates the diverse methodologies now employed in this important area of neuropsychological reseach.
