Diagnostic Clinical Neuropsychology is a handbook for neuropsychological assessment, which includes the evaluation of both cognitive and emotional aspects of functioning in the patient with known or suspected brain injury. For this third edition, the book has been updated with over 600 new references, a new chapter on toxic conditions, a glossary, and study guides for students.
The book is designed as an introduction to the field of neuropsychological assessment for the graduate student and as a shelf reference for the practicing clinician. It begins with overviews of neuroanatomy and the evaluation process and then looks at neurocognitive syndromes in complete detail.
This coverage, including the description of how to conduct a neuropsychological evaluation in patients with these disorders, is the most comprehensive currently available in the field. The book treats many of the hot topic issues in neuropsychology, such as the cortical subcortical dementia distinction, depression versus dementia, malingering, and neuropsychological evaluation in patients wit mild head injury.
