9781138877573: Neuropsychological Research: A Review

In a broad sense, neuropsychology stands for the branch of brain sciences that aims to understand how the structure and function of the brain relate to specific cognitive and psychological processes. The idea of developing a research field somewhere between neurology and cognitive psychology emerged in the 1960s as a result of studies conducted by both disciplines which, although using different methodologies and tools, were analysing the same issues. Neuropsychology particularly puts emphasis on the clinical and experimental study of the cognitive effects of brain injury or neurological diseases, taking models of normal cognitive functioning into account.

Neuropsychological Research: A Review provides a meticulous overview of what has been achieved in the field of cognitive neuropsychology from its early beginnings in the 1960s and 1970s to the present day. Authors include some of the pioneers involved in the genesis of neuropsychology as an independent and distinct field of neuroscience. The comprehensive coverage includes language disorders, skilled movement disorders, recognition disorders, attentional and executive disorders, visuo-perceptual disorders, memory disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases.

This fascinating text forms an enjoyable tribute to the rich heritage of neuropsychology, and will be essential reading for researchers and students of neuropsychology, clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, and behavioural neuroscience.

About the Author:

Peter Mariën is a clinical neurolinguist in the department of Neurology at ZNA Middelheim Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium. He is professor in neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels and the University of Ghent. His main area of research is situated in the field of clinical neurolinguistics and neuropsychology.

Jubin Abutalebi is a cognitive neurologist and senior researcher at the Faculty of Psychology of the University Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan, Italy. His research interests lie in the area of clinical neuropsychology and, specifically, language disorders in theory and practice.

Review:

"The editors have got together a comprehensive collection of chapters covering diverse aspects of neuropsychology. The range of contributors to the book is impressive, with a large number of well-known and expert authors from Europe and North America. I congratulate the editors for producing a thoroughly comprehensive collection covering the main and emerging issues in current neuropsychology."Chris Code, School of Psychology, University of Exeter

"Neuropsychological Research is a truly international volume and thereby fulfils the editor’s goal of producing an homage to a pioneer in the internationalization of neuropsychology. It is a worthy text that will be of use to clinicians seeking a ‘smattering’ of reviews of various research topics in neuropsychology, as well as to academics who wish to solidify their knowledge on the state of research spanning from the early days of neuropsychology to the present time."Lee Ashendorf, Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial VAMC, in Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology

"The editors have amassed an impressive group of experts from Europe, North America, and Australia who provide an international perspective frequently missing from other neuropsychological texts...they masterfully achieved their goals; selected contributers, many of whom knew Professor Vignolo personally, convey obvious dedication and ethusiasm for their chosen areas of neuropsychological study."             - Robin C. Hilsabeck, Ph. D., ABPP-CN, South Texas Veterans Health Care System & Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, in International Neuropsychological Society, Volume 15, 2009
