The Encyclopedia of Neuropsychological Disorders Book Excerpt:

"I am pleased to include this text in my library, and I am confident that it will serve as an excellent resource for years to come."--PsycCRITIQUES This book serves as an A-Z reference that addresses the neuropsychological aspects of 300 neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neuromedical disorders. Each entry follows a 5 section structure that will cover (1) essential features of the disorder (2) physiological basis of the disorder (3) neuropsychological and other clinical presentation (4) assessment and diagnostic practices (5) evidence-based treatments and interventions. This book is written for clinical professionals and students in training to aid in clinical awareness, diagnostic accuracy, and intervention successfulness. The text goes beyond the emotional and behavioral aspects of each disorder and views the broader impacts of the symptoms. This approach emphasizes the importance of looking at the other functional impacts of these manifestations (e.g. cognitive deficits secondary to depression, orthodopaedic ambulation issues). The emphasis on neuropsychological sequelae, physiological basis, and means of diagnosing and treating of 300 conditions across the lifespan make this the most comprehensive resource available to professionals in and around neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and the behavioral neurosciences. Key Features: Presents 300 highly-structured entries providing disorder features, pathology and physiology, clinical representation, assessment and diagnosis, and evidence-based treatments and interventions Covers neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neuromedical disorders across the lifespan (pediatric, adult, and geriatric populations) Includes interventions and methods of treatment for the outcomes patients may experience

John Hughlings Jackson Book Excerpt:

John Hughlings Jackson (1835-1911) was a preeminent British neurologist who is widely recognized today as one of the leading founders of modern clinical neurology and neuroscience. He had a unique ability to translate messy clinical data into viable neuroscientific conceptions. This ability served him well, because in his early years knowledge of cerebral organization was quite rudimentary. Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893) faced the same problem at the same time in the 1860s, and each man recognized the other's work at a fundamental level. Although Jackson's historical standing has increased over the century since his death, there is only one full-length biography, the Critchleys' John Hughlings Jackson: Father of English Neurology (OUP 1998). Like the numerous articles and chapters that have been written about Jackson, that book is sometimes inaccurate and often hagiographic. In this new biography, John Hughlings Jackson: Clinical Neurology, Evolution and Victorian Brain Science, Samuel H. Greenblatt provides a critical analysis of Jackson's work within the professional, social, and intellectual contexts of his Victorian milieu. The book follows Jackson's intellectual development through a close examination of his published writings, in chronological order, from the case reports and Suggestions of his early medical career to the major lectures he delivered in his later years. The text is supplemented with a comprehensive bibliography of Jackson's writings that will be of practical use to scholars of his work.

Functional Neuroanatomy and Clinical Neuroscience Book Excerpt:

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to functional neuroanatomy and clinical neuroscience that is focused on disorders of human cognition and behavior, designed as both a reference and a textbook, and suitable for clinical neuropsychology students, early career neuropsychologists and other non-physician healthcare professionals who work with people who have brain diseases or injuries. It is unique in that it interleaves discussion of functional neuroanatomy, clinical neuroscience, and disorders of the human central nervous system with rich descriptions of neurocognitive and neurobehavioral syndromes. It provides a comprehensive overview of key neuroanatomic concepts, clearly linking them to cognitive and behavioral disorders. The chapters are organized hierarchically, helping the reader to build up a strong clinical knowledge base from more basic neuroscience concepts. The material progresses from functional neuroanatomy of brain structures and associated clinical syndromes, common neuropathologies, and domain-specific syndromes that involve more than one brain area. The book ends with several chapters giving concise descriptions of clinical assessment and neuroimaging methods"--
