Описание: This book provides essential information about the variety of seizure disorders and serves as a basic epilepsy reference guide for students and practicing clinical neuropsychologists. In addition to epilepsy neuropsychological assessment issues, the book provides an overview of the known cognitive effects of seizures as well as the adaptive, emotional, and psychiatric consequences of epilepsy including a chapter on psychogenic nonepileptic seizures. Diagnostic tests, such as EEG and structural neuroimaging, are described and the leading treatment options are detailed with a chapter on pharmacologic therapies which reviews the known cognitive and behaivoral side effects of specific antiepileptic drugs. Many of the more rare epilepsy disorders have been included in the appendices for quick and easy reference. The book also details the role of neuropsychology within the epilepsy surgery process including pre-and post-surgery cognitive evaluations, cortical stimulation mapping, functional neuroimaging, and intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) procedures and reviews the major surgical treatment options used in the intractable epilepsies. Case examples are dispersed throughout the text with neuropsychological results as heuristic aids. The book concludes with a glossary of epilepsy terms.

Описание: This volume contains 22 chapters by leading researchers in the fields of language and aphasia research. These cover traditional approaches to the topic as well as up-to-date techniques for investigating language disorders. Coverage is comprehensive in its scope, including detailed treatments of aphasia in users of sign language and in bilingual speakers. Separate chapters provide detailed treatments of each of the prominent symptoms of aphasia, including cognitive and psycholinguistic interpretations. The cognitive disorders that are related to aphasia, including memory and attentional impairments, limb apraxia and acalculia, are discussed in separate chapters. Supplementing these reviews of aphasia research are chapters detailing other approaches to the study of language/brain relationships, including functional neuroimaging, event-related potentials, direct cortical stimulation and study of "split brain" patients.

Описание: Volume 7 complements Volume 6 and focuses on language, memory, attention, mood and non-cognitive aspects of behaviour. Additional chapters deal with academic disorders (dyslexia and dyscalculia), and with epilepsy, autism and childhood psychosis. The book will keep all scientists working in the field of neuropsychology abreast of recent developments, and points to future paths to be explored in this rapidly expanding area.
Описание: With the aging of the baby boomers and medical advances that promote longevity, older adults are rapidly becoming the fastest growing segment of the population. As the population ages, so does the incidence of age related disorders. Many predict that 15% - 20% of the baby-boomer generation will develop some form of cognitive decline over the course of their lifetime, with estimates escalating to up to 50% in those achieving advanced age. Although much attention has been directed at Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, it is estimated that nearly one third of those cases of cognitive decline result from other neuropathological mechanisms. In fact, many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease likely have co-morbid disorders that can also influence cognition (i.e., vascular cognitive impairment), suggesting mixed dementias are grossly under diagnosed. The Clinical Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia is a unique work that provides clinicians with expert guidance and a hands-on approach to neuropsychological practice with older adults. The book will be divided into two sections, the first addressing special considerations for the evaluation of older adults, and the second half focusing on common referral questions likely to be encountered when working with this age group. The authors of the chapters are experts and are recognized by their peers as opinion leaders in their chosen chapter topics. The field of neuropsychology has played a critical role in developing methods for early identification of late life cognitive disorders as well as the differential diagnosis of dementia. Neuropsychological assessment provides valuable clinical information regarding the nature and severity of cognitive symptoms associated with dementia. Each chapter will reinforce the notion that neuropsychological measures provide the clinician with sensitive tools to differentiate normal age-related cognitive decline from disease-associated impairment, aid in differential diagnosis of cognitive dysfunction in older adults, as well as identify cognitive deficits most likely to translate into functional impairments in everyday life.

Описание: The past 30 years have seen the field of clinical neuropsychology grow to become an influential discipline within mainstream clinical psychology and an established component of most professional courses. It remains one of the fastest growing specialities within mainstream clinical psychology, neurology, and the psychiatric disciplines. Substantially updated to take account of these rapid developments, the new edition of this successful handbook provides a practical guide for those interested in the professional application of neuropsychological approaches and techniques in clinical practice. With chapters by leading specialists, it demonstrates the contribution that neuropsychological approaches can make to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of brain disorders, as well as addressing the special considerations when treating children and the elderly. As before, the book is divided into 10 sections, covering everything from methodological and conceptual issues, developme
Описание: This second volume includes chapters on animal models and neuropsychological assessment. Memory is discussed from the anatomical and clinical viewpoints, and memory disorders resulting from specific diseases such as Herpes simplex and Alzheimer's disease are considered in detail. The section further provides a cognitive neuropsychological analysis of various forms of memory, including explicit memory, remote memory and semantic memory. Chapters on confabulation and on functional amnesia are also included.
Описание: The sixth volume of the "Handbook of Neuropsychology" is devoted to topics related to ageing and dementia. The volume is introduced by two chapters dealing with age-related cognitive and neurobiological alterations in animals, including a detailed review of data obtained with transgenic and knockout technology. The next chapter reviews the cognitive changes associated with normal ageing. The gamut of symptoms that occur in Alzheimer's disease (AD) are then described and analyzed, they include effects on attention, language, memory, non-verbal functions with emphasis on spatial abilities, olfaction and the motor system. The discussion of dementia syndromes is presented in two sections. The first concerns AD, which is discussed from the points of view of epidemiology, neuropathology and neurochemistry and concludes with a review of current and future treatments. The other section deals with non-AD dementias including Fronto-temporal and Lewy body dementias and specific conditions such as Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, as well as HIV infection. The volume includes a review of brain imaging and cerebral metabolism findings in ageing and dementia. The final chapters review the relations between culture and dementia and the special syndrome of severe dementia.
Описание: The second edition of the Handbook of Neuropsychology is designed to address the extraordinary growth and changes taking place in this field in recent years. There are important changes between the first edition and the present one in termsorganization, content, timing, presentation, and availability. Several volumes have been concurrently planned and the entire series will appear over a span of approximately two years.

Описание: While a great number of textbooks have been devoted to various medical aspects of childhood epilepsy, none have been as comprehensive and forthright as Neuropsychology of Childhood Epilepsy. Devoted to the neuropsychological description of childhood epilepsy, the editors have uncovered this neurological condition as never before. Divided into three sections, section one may be highly regarded as a necessary introduction to the neuropsychological basis of childhood epilepsy, electro-clinical patterns of various types of epilepsy and brain maturation while section two delves into the characterization of the neuropsychological profile that accompanies focal epilepsies leading to the behavioral and cognitive impairments linked to the transient events that often go unnoticed. Part three covers the medical, surgical and socio-educational management of childhood epilepsy. bsenteeism, learning difficulties, and cognitive dysfunctions may have an impact on a child's self-esteem and upon his or her quality of life. The final part of the volume therefore presents an accurate account of the vast psychological consequences of this disease. This volume is a must read for experimental and cognitive neuropsychologists, medical specialists involved in the care of children with epilepsy and professionals and caretakers dealing with the different aspects of childhood epilepsy alike.

Описание: Historically, relatively few investigations in neuropsychology have been sensitive to the analysis of cultural variables. This handbook will assist the
neuropsychologist interested in cultural competence and help increase understanding of the link between cultural competence in assessment and intervention and good treatment
outcomes. The handbooks' authors provide an in-depth discussion of the current status of multicultural training in neuropsychology; specific information on diverse groups (age, gender,
ethnicity, etc.), assess
ent instruments, and clinical populations (HIV infected, seizure disorders, brain injuries); and unique analysis of immigration patterns, forensics, and psychopharmacology.
volume is the first to summarize the cultural data available in neuropsychology. It is a valuable resource for clinical neuropsychologists, school psychologists and rehabilitation
