In its first edition, this book established itself as the best available source for clinical descriptions of neurobehavioural disorders. For the second edition, many chapters have been revised and greatly expanded to take into account the enormous growth in the literature on brain-behaviourrelationships in recent years. The text describes all the major neurobehavioural disorders of adults - aphasia, reading and writing disorders, agnosia, body schema disturbances, apraxia, amnesic disorders, dementia, and others - and their pathogenesis. Methods of diagnosis and treatment are alsodiscussed.
