This second volume of the series Advances in Clinical Neuro psychology addresses the neurological and neuropsychological dis orders that are seen most frequently in children. The book begins with a discussion of normal and abnormal brain development. From there, neurological and neuropsychological assessment methods are described and evaluated. The main body of the text is concerned with reviewing the major childhood disorders, and includes discus sions of brain trauma, dyslexia, minimal brain dysfunction, mental retardation and epilepsy. These latter conditions adversely impact on psychosocial development and limit educational attain ment. Approaching these disorders from a neurobehavioral perspec tive, therefore, potentially has ramifications for improving detection and assessment procedures, as well as for developing .new intervention strategies. This book continues the tradition of the first volume in that the contents include topics that address basic research, as well as clinical problems. It is hoped that this combination will encourage the professional to integrate research and clinical application in guiding their investigative activities or clinical endeavors.
