"A well-written and comprehensive text from two eminent clinical neuroscientists. In keeping with a tradition of excellence, this second edition expands on the editors' highly successful first edition. A historical and conceptual overview has been added, as well as a new section on imaging that includes contributions from foremost experts. Advances in the understanding of frontotemporal dementia are also reflected in chapters emphasizing the importance of this previously understudied disease. This text is a 'must read' for anyone seriously interested in understanding the biology of behavior and the diseases that cause it to go awry."--Charles DeCarli, MD, Department of Neurology and Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis "Few areas of the brain have attracted more research than the frontal lobes. Once considered esoteric, frontal lobe disease is now a common diagnosis in patients with neurodegenerative dementias. This updated second edition, edited by two prominent leaders in behavioral and cognitive neurology, contains a thoughtfully integrated exploration of frontal lobe neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, imaging, and neuropsychology. The contributors include some of the most productive clinicians and scientists in the field. Drs. Miller and Cummings have edited a volume that deserves to become the standard reference work on the human frontal lobes."--Marsel Mesulam, MD, Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University "This second edition provides the perfect framework for further integrating neurology, psychiatry, and neuropsychology in the understanding and treatment of major mental disorders. A great breadth of scientific knowledge, clinical acumen, and provocative analysis is brought to bear on enigmatic frontal lobe syndromes. Detailed and comprehensive, this is a vital reference for practitioners, investigators, and students who wish to be at the cutting edge of clinical neuroscience and multidisciplinary research."--Paul J. Eslinger, PhD, Penn State Hershey Medical CenterReseña del editor:
Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this authoritative work synthesizes the rapidly growing knowledge base on the human frontal lobes and their central role in behavior, cognition, health, and disease. Leading contributors address neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and normal neuropsychological functioning, and describe the nature and consequences of frontal lobe dysfunction in specific neurological and psychiatric conditions. Second edition features include a new section on structural and functional neuroimaging and substantially expanded coverage of frontotemporal dementia and related disorders. Other new topics include self-consciousness, competence, and personality; new testing approaches; bipolar disorder; and adult-onset genetic disorders of the frontal lobes. The book is illustrated with nearly 100 figures.
