Provides a practical approach to the assessment of patients with disorders of cognative function - such as memory and language impairment. Beginning with theoretical background of cognitive testing and an overview of cognitive functions, divided into those with a distributed or localized neural basis. There is a description of common neuropsychological syndromes including delirium, dementia, amnesia, aphasia, agnosia, and neglect. There have been enormous advances in this field in the last decade and the author incorporates these advances in theory and provides a practical approach to bedside cognitive testing with some tips on physical examination. There are 12 case histories to illustrate the advocated approach. Standardized mental test schedules, such as the Mini Mental State Examination, are discussed and there is an appendix which describes commonly used neuropsychological tests.
