Written by a clinical neuropsychologist and a cognitive psychologist, this work presents an integrated view of the multi-faceted concept of attention. In neuropsychology, attention has different meanings depending on the nature of the neurological disorder and the theoretical background of the investigator. To provide insight into these theoretical backgrounds, this volume opens with a discussion of psychological and neurobiological theories of attention. The book does not adopt a particular theoretical orientation but tries to clarify the various conceptualizations of attention that are encountered in the literature. Throughout, the book critically reviews the literature on attentional deficits in frequently occurring neurological conditions such as traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy. This material is organized according to the types of tasks used to investigate attention, such as tests of focused, divided and sustained attention. The book concludes with three chapters on topics that underline its practical aim: assessment of attention, the relationship between test performance and everyday activities, and the rehabilitation of impairments of attention. This comprehensive work will be invaluable to neuropsychologists, neurologists, clinical psychologists, gerontologists, and rehabilitation specialists.

"Students of neuropsychology will particularly appreciate the explanation of the neuropsychological implications of cognitive psychology and behavioral neurology research. The authors are credible experts in their field. Figures illustrating models of attention and graphs summarizing research
findings are helpful and judiciously used. The references are pertinent and current. The chief value of this book is that it organizes theory and experimental research in a manner that clinical neuropsychology students will find relevant and understandable."--Doody's Health Sciences Book Review
"An eminently clinically oriented book....Very well-written....Most warmly recommended for clinical neurophysiologists and neurologists. It should be kept in mind that the neurocognitive functions will be one of our greatest challenges in the years and decades to come."--E. Niedermeyer (Johns
Hopkins University) in Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology
