The past 30 years have seen the field of clinical neuropsychology grow to become an influential discipline within mainstream clinical psychology and an established component of most professional courses. It remains one of the fastest growing specialties within mainstream clinical psychology, neurology, and the psychiatric disciplines. Substantially updated to take account of these rapid developments, the new edition of this successful handbook provides a practical guide for those interested in the professional application of neuropsychological approaches and techniques in clinical practice.
With chapters by leading specialists, it demonstrates the contribution that neuropsychological approaches can make to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of brain disorders, as well as addressing the special considerations when treating children and the elderly. As before, the book is divided into 10 sections, covering everything from methodological and conceptual issues, developmental and paediatric neuropsychology, functional neuroanatomy, and the historical context. Throughout, the content draws on contemporary neuroscientific techniques, focusing on the methods of functional imaging, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and cognitive rehabilitation. It also provides background information on laboratory and research techniques, as well as covering relevant neurology and psychiatry.
The book will be essential for trainee neuropsychologists, students and teachers in the clinical and cognitive neurosciences/psychology, neurobiologists, neurologist, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists.

Review from previous edition: "This textbook provides an ambitious yet successful summary of current knowledge about the clinical neuropsychology of the major neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Remarkably, and marking its distinctiveness from other clinical neuropsychology texts, it goes beyond description to incorporate techniques for ameliorating and managing the functional impact of the disorders. This melding of theoretical and practical knowledge in neurology, neuropsychology, and neurorehabilitation will make it an essential text for the practising clinician." --Professor Catherine Mateer, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, BC, Canada
"Clinical neuropsychologists of all persuasions will find much of practical value and also much to fascinate them in this monumental volume. No other book on clinical neuropsychology comes close in scope or in depth. It will in particular be of inestimable value as a textbook for professional training courses in clinical neuropsychology" --Professor Max Coltheart, Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
