Following on the first three volumes in the acclaimed Aspects of Consciousness series, which have brought together a wide variety of discussions on mental processes, Volume 4 provides an informative and interesting assessment of clinical conditions that have been associated with a wide range of disorders of consciousness. The distortions and disturbances of consciousness that occur in various clinical conditions and that are of practical and theoretical interest have not been discussed before in such an integrated and comprehensive fashion. Te present volume, including contributions from distinguished clinical practitioners and academic research workers, discusses the effects on consciousness of brain damage in adults and children, the consequence of organic disorders of human memory, the neuropsychological implications of epilepsy, distortions of consciousness and self-awareness in schizophrenia and anorexia nervosa, sleep and its disorders, and the state of consciousness in the congenitally deaf. The consideration of complimentary theoretical and practical aspects of these disorders will help clinicians and researchers in the neurosciences, psychiatry, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychology and will be of interest to advanced undergraduates in medicine and psychiatry.--- from book's back cover
