Insomnia and fatigue are two of the most frequent consequences after traumatic brain injury (TBI). About 30% of individuals suffer from chronic insomnia, an additional 20% have symptoms of insomnia, and up to 75% have significant and persistent fatigue. There is a strong empirical basis for the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral interventions for the management of insomnia and fatigue in the general population and in other patient populations, and emerging research shows that these interventions seem applicable with similar benefits to people with TBI. Insomnia and Fatigue After Traumatic Brain Injury: A CBT Approach to Assessment and Treatment is written by a team of four scientist-practitioners in psychology who are experts in sleep medicine, cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Together they have authored this assessment and intervention manual for insomnia and fatigue, intended for clinicians working with the TBI population. Based on cognitive-behavioral principles, the manual integrates evidence-based interventions and techniques used by expert clinicians working with these populations. Throughout the development process, there has been an ongoing integration of the best available research, specialized clinical expertise, and knowledge transfer expertise: all of these perspectives were used to choose, revise, and format the content of the manual as to ensure that it would be most useful for the target audience. Authored by specialists in sleep medicine, CBT and TBI Covers both assessment and treatment for TBI insomnia and fatigue Contains treatment plans in detail Suitable for inpatient and outpatient settings Appropriate for mild to severe TBI Includes extensive patient handouts

Holbourne’s theory that rotational head movement and shear strains were limiting factors in producing acute parenchymal brain damage was a watershed moment in understanding traumatic brain injury (TBI). Long term effects, and in particular neurodegenerative proteinopathy subsequent to TBI, remain theoretical, notwithstanding the poorly understood ‘punch drunk’ syndrome of the early and mid-20th century, and the 21st century concept of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. This book, the Handbook of Traumatic Brain Injury and Neurodegeneration, has as its theme the marriage between neurodegenerative disease and neurotrauma through TBI surrogates such as sport, military service, and experimental models, and the legitimacy of that marriage. In the 32 contributions included here, this handbook not only explores the deleterious effects of genuine TBI, but also, and more importantly, the relationship between TBI and neurodegeneration. Controversy notwithstanding, there is much to be learned about the biological effects of TBI, substrates for long-term sequelae, the relationship between TBI and diverse neuropsychiatric disorders, and targets for therapy. The overall message to the neuroscience community from these papers may be a cautionary tale. The null hypothesis, that there is no causal relationship between TBI and progressive neurodegenerative disease, appears to be very much in play, and the book will be of interest to all those working in the field.

The field of educational psychology is primarily concerned with teaching and learning. Educational psychology has a long historical past and an extensive record of conducting empirical research into the teaching/learning process. Educational psychology has also been involved with the topics of motivation, intelligence, memory, cognition, intellectual development and evaluation and assessment. Over the past 50 years, educational psychology has been predominantly involved with the learning processes of the " normal, average " student. However, over the past 20 years, mainstreaming and later inclusion has presented an additional challenge for educational psychologists and classroom teachers. This new book presents leading research from around the globe in all areas of educational psychology.

Significant new insights and research findings about brain-behavior relationships, neurological disorders, neurodiagnostic issues, and neuropsychological assessment procedures are incorporated into the third edition of Neuropsychological Assessment. Preliminary chapters present the principles necessary for a patient-oriented, personalized, hypothesis-testing approach to neuropsychological assessment. The subsequent chapters contain nearly all of the tests and assessment techniques covered in the previous editions plus many additional ones, including newly developed neuropsychological tests, tests from other branches of psychology, research techniques that have only recently been introduced into clinical neuropsychology, tests originating in Europe and elsewhere, and a few measures as yet untried by neuropsychologists. In a reorganization designed to meet current thinking and assessment procedures, tests originally offered in prepackaged batteries are now presented within their appropriate functional domains. For example, individual memory tests -- whether developed singly or for use in a commercial battery -- are discussed in the chapter on memory tests, while a new chapter deals with memory batteries, questionnaires, and inventories. A separate chapter reviews prepackaged and commercial test batteries used for general-purpose neuropsychological assessment, but the individual tests from these batteries are treated elsewhere according to the salient functions they examine. Following chapters on observational measurement techniques and on measures of personality and emotional status, the concluding chapter presents an array of techniques that have been used to identify motivational problems and malingering.

This Second Edition reverses the usual growth curve by reducing the number of chapters from 50 to 44, mainly by amalgamating the coverage of infectious diseases. The book has been completely reorganized so that chapters are now grouped by type of disorder. In a thorough updating, many chapters have been rewritten by different authors and two new chapters on medico-legal aspects and economic outcomes research have been added. As before, the book addresses the important clinical questions: what is the natural history of the disorder and how does medical or surgical treatment alter the outcome? The authors provide clinical prediction reules and a detailed critical review of prognositic factors. Patients and their families are increasingly demanding information on the prognosis of disease, and there is no better reference source for neurologists and neurosurgeons to use on a daily basis than this volume.
