'The book is well-written and very up-to-date; it has a readable and accessible style, with the jargon kept to a minimum. The discussion point in the assessment chapter was ingenious and stimulating.'

"Dr Graham Hole, University of Sussex"

Following the success of the first edition, "Human Neuropsychology "has been comprehensively updated to cover every major topic in the field while simultaneously introducing students to significant new developments in the area.

This book provides the perfect balance between theory and application, enabling the reader to develop a complete understanding of the subject. It is also an invaluable reference tool to aid further study.

FeaturesIncorporates chapter summaries, case studies, illustrations and examples throughout the text for clear explanation and understanding. Uses photographic content to convey the science through visual examples. Includes a listing of neuropsychology web resources, alongside links to relevant journals.

'It is the only text that provides several theories on frontal lobe function and also mentions the dysexecutive syndrome. The problems associated with neuropsychological testing are well-presented. The case studies are an excellent component of the book. It brings a truly applied aspect to each chapter. I'd definitely recommend this book.'

"Dr Nicola Starkey, University of Wakato"
