Clinical neuropsychology is one of the fastest growing specialties within mainstream clinical psychology, neurology and the psychiatric disciplines. This handbook is designed to provide a practical guide for those interested in the professional application of neuropsychological approaches and techniques in clinical practice.
The book is written and presented in the concise, structured, note-based style characteristic of the Oxford Handbook Series.
It covers 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. The content is firmly anchored in contemporary neuroscientific techniques, focusing on the techniques of functional imaging, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and cognitive rehabilitation. It also provides background information on laboratory and research techniques, as well as covering relevant neurology and psychiatry.
The readership will include trainee neuropsychologists, students and teachers in the clinical and cognitive neurosciences and psychology, neurobiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists.

Review from previous edition: "This textbook provides an ambitious yet successful summary of current knowledge about the clinical neuropsychology of the major neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Remarkably, and marking its distinctiveness from other clinical neuropsychology texts, it goes beyond description to incorporate techniques for ameliorating and managing the functional impact of the disorders. This melding of theoretical and practical knowledge in neurology, neuropsychology, and neurorehabilitation will make it an essential text for the practising clinician." --Professor Catherine Mateer, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, BC, Canada
"Clinical neuropsychologists of all persuasions will find much of practical value and also much to fascinate them in this monumental volume. No other book on clinical neuropsychology comes close in scope or in depth. It will in particular be of inestimable value as a textbook for professional training courses in clinical neuropsychology" --Professor Max Coltheart, Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
