This graduate level textbook, authored by two of the most highly respected scholars in this field, presents a truly contemporary approach to the foundations and practice of clinical neuropsychology by integrating neurophysiology, cognitive neuropsychology, and neuropsychological assessment into a cohesive text. Its particular focus on an empirically-grounded, evidence-based approach to practice as well as its comprehensive coverage of neuropsychological assessment and evaluation set it apart from other clinically focused neuropsychology texts.
The text comprehensively covers the major neuropsychological assessment tools and clinical approaches to neuropsychology and their biological and cognitive roots and links. It features a comparative discussion of assessment, interpretation, and report writing from multiple modalities and approaches that will appeal to the majority of students and clinicians regardless of their theoretical orientation. Coverage of fundamental concepts, theoretical entities, and empirically rooted practice techniques are all considered within the evolution of the discipline of clinical neuropsychology, from its roots in localization theories to contemporary theories of neurocognitive functioning. The text also provides an Instructor's guide and online resources that include Power Point presentations and exam questions for each chapter.
