This important book, by the most distinguished Soviet psychologist of our time, is the product of almost forty years of extensive research aimed at understanding the cerebral basis of human psychological activity. The main part of the book describes what we know today about the individual systems that make up the human brain and about the role of the individual zones of the cerebral hemispheres in the task of providing the necessary conditions for higher forms of mental activity to take place. Finally, Luria analyzes the cerebral organization of perception and action, of attention and memory, or speech and intellectual processes, and attempts to fit the facts obtained by neuropsychological studies of individual brain systems into their appropriate place in the grand design of psychological science.

Introducing Neuropsychology, Second Edition investigates the functions of the brain and explores the relationships between brain systems and human behaviour. The material is presented in a jargon-free, easy to understand manner and aims to guide students new to the field through current areas of research. Following a brief history of the discipline and a description of methods in neuropsychology, the remaining chapters review traditional and recent research findings. Both cognitive and clinical aspects of neuropsychology are addressed to illustrate the advances scientists are making (on many fronts) in their quest to understand brain - behaviour relationships in both normal and disturbed functioning. The rapid developments in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience resulting from traditional research methods as well as new brain-imaging techniques are presented in a clear and straightforward way. Each chapter has been fully revised and updated and new brain-imaging data are incorporated throughout, especially in the later chapters on Emotion and Motivation, and Executive Functions. As in the first edition, key topics are dealt with in separate focus boxes, and “interim comment” sections allow the reader a chance to “take stock” at regular intervals. The book assumes no particular expertise on the reader’s part in either psychology or brain physiology. Thus, it will be of great interest not only to those studying neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience, but also to medical and nursing students, and indeed anyone who is interested in learning about recent progress in understanding brain–behaviour relationships.

This book is unique in that it gives equal weight to the psychological and neurological approaches to the study of cognitive deficits in patients with brain lesions. The result is a balanced and comprehensive analysis of cognitive skills and abilities that departs from the more usual syndrome approach favored by neurologists and the anti-localizationist perspective of cognitive psychologists. Gives an introductory account of the core subject matter of cognitive neuropsychology Provides a comprehensive review of the major deficits of human cognitive function Offers the expertise of two scientists who are also practicing neuropsychologists

Diagnostic Clinical Neuropsychology is a handbook for neuropsychological assessment, which includes the evaluation of both cognitive and emotional aspects of functioning in the patient with known or suspected brain injury. For this third edition, the book has been updated with over 600 new references, a new chapter on toxic conditions, a glossary, and study guides for students. The book is designed as an introduction to the field of neuropsychological assessment for the graduate student and as a shelf reference for the practicing clinician. It begins with overviews of neuroanatomy and the evaluation process and then looks at neurocognitive syndromes in complete detail. This coverage, including the description of how to conduct a neuropsychological evaluation in patients with these disorders, is the most comprehensive currently available in the field. The book treats many of the hot topic issues in neuropsychology, such as the cortical-subcortical dementia distinction, depression versus dementia, malingering, and neuropsychological evaluation in patients with mild head injury.
