Volume 3 in the series Handbook of Neuropsychology, covers traditional approaches to the topic as well as new techniques for investigating language disorders. Separate chapters provide detailed treatments of each of the prominent symptoms of aphasia (e.g., deficits of speech production and perception, of naming, repetition, comprehension, etc.), including cognitive and psycholinguistic interpretations. The cognitive disorders that are related to aphasia, including memory and attentional impairments, limb apraxia and acalculia, are discussed in separate chapters. Supplementing these reviews of aphasia research are chapters detailing other approaches to the study of language/brain relationships, including functional neuroimaging, event-related potentials, direct cortical stimulation and study of "split brain" patients. Each chapter provides a current review of its topic, with extensive references, providing invaluable reference material for the researcher and clinician.

He returned to the United States and joined the NIH in 2005, before coming to GW in July 2014.
Dr. Boller’s initial area of interest was aphasia and related disorders; he later became primarily interested in cognitive disorders and dementia with emphasis on the correlates of cognitive disorders with pathology, neurophysiology and imaging. He was one of the first to study the relation between Parkinson and Alzheimer disease, two processes that were thought to be unrelated. His current area of interest is Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders with emphasis on the early and late stages of the disease. He is also interested in the history of Neurosciences and is Past President of the International Society for the History of Neurosciences. He was the founding Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Neurology, the official Journal of the European Federation of Neurological Societies (now European Academy of Neurology). He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and a member of the American Neurological Association. In addition, he has chaired Committees within the International Neuropsychological Society, the International Neuropsychology Symposium, and the World Federation of Neurology (WFN). He has authored over 200 papers and books including the Handbook of Neuropsychology (Elsevier).
