Description: With close to fifty chapters by some of the most prominent clinical neuropsychologists, the Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychology sets a new standard in the field in its scope, breadth, and scholarship. Unlike most other books in neuropsychology, the Textbook is organized primarily around syndromes, disorders and related clinical phenomena. Written for the clinician at all levels of training, from the beginner to the journeyman, the Textbook presents contemporary clinical neuropsychology in a comprehensive volume. Chapters are rich with reviews of the literature and clinical case material spanning a range from pediatric to adult and geriatric disorders. Chapter authors are among the most respected in their field, leaders of American Neuropsychology, known for their scholarship and professional leadership. Rarely have so many distinguished members of one discipline been in one volume. This is essential reading for students of neuropsychology, and all others preparingfor careers in the field.

This up-to-date text clearly presents a multitude of variables that poyentially affect the results of neuropsychological tests. Following a general discussion of neuropsychological constructs known to impact performance on neuropsychological tests: demographics, personality and sociocultural factors, all chapter authors, experts in their respective fields, present an empirical approach to assessment. They focus on the disorders under discussion (not solely the test that might be used in diagnosis), and reflect the contributions the field has made to detecting differences in disorders that have neurological underpinnings. Topics discussed are: Dementia, HIV - related syndromes, adult seizure disorders, toxic exposure, mild to severe braininjury, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
