"This completely revised edition is exactly what you need if you are looking for an up-to-date, advanced text on clinical neuropsychology that is deeply situated in clinical practice, but at the same time is very solidly based on evidence from neuropsychological case studies and cognitive neuroscience methods. The author approaches difficult topics reasonably gently but does not at all over-simplify." – Tim Shallice, University College London, UK
"The second edition of Neuropsychology: From Theory to Practice builds on the strengths of the excellent first edition: it is informative and comprehensive, yet at same time engaging and a pleasure to read. Andrewes has effectively integrated new, cutting-edge material with classic studies and clinical vignettes. This new edition is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in neuropsychology." – Daniel L. Schacter, Harvard University, USA
"This new edition has been extensively updated with research carried out since the first edition of the book. This is invaluable because there have been major changes in the field since 2001.The text is very clear and readable and it does not oversimplify. I particularly liked the willingness to indicate where there is still conflicting evidence. I also like the mix of lesion and imaging work and the coverage of both theory and clinical applications including treatments. This is a textbook that deserves to succeed." – Andrew Mayes, University of Manchester, UK
"This is an impressive second edition of a popular neuropsychology text. Like its predecessor, this comprehensive volume is accessible to a broad audience interested in the workings of the brain and disorders arising from damage and disease processes. Andrewes effectively integrates neuropsychological theories with experimental and clinical evidence on disorders of perception, attention, executive function, cerebral asymmetry, language, emotion, social behaviour, and consciousness. Readers are encouraged to relate the material to their own experiences and question their understanding in a way that achieves deeper learning outcomes. This text is undoubtedly a valuable resource for students, academics, researchers and clinicians." – Tamara Ownsworth, Griffith University, Australia
"This book illustrates why the discipline of clinical neuropsychology is a necessary part of undergraduate psychology. Using clinical case studies, the book offers an extensive range of the behavioural sequelae of brain injury in an engaging, straightforward manner that elucidates neurotypical behaviour. Anyone with an interest in the way the brain works and what happens when it goes wrong should buy this book." ― Alison Lee, Bath Spa University, UK
"As the name suggests, the book gives a broad, yet comprehensive overview of the theory and practical applications to clinical populations within the neuropsychology discipline. Andrewes provides an excellent outline of the main important topic areas dominating the field (both past and present), with the addition of the advancements in cognitive neuroscience... The primary target audience of the textbook will be undergraduate students, but the layout of the chapters and the clear, intelligible writing style make it inviting to all audiences with an interest in the field." - Timothy Eschle, Northumbria University, The PsychologistReseña del editor:
The second edition of this comprehensive textbook for students of Neuropsychology gives a thorough overview of the complex relationship between brain and behaviour. With an excellent blend of clinical, experimental and theoretical coverage, it draws on the latest research findings from neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, neurochemistry, clinical neuropsychology and neuropsychology to provide students with new insights in this fast moving field.
The book is organised around the main neuropsychological disorders in the areas of perception, executive dysfunction, attention, memory, cerebral asymmetry, language, emotion and consciousness. There is a clear emphasis on bridging the gap between theory and practice with links throughout to clinical issues of both assessment and rehabilitation to build a clear understanding of the application of the theoretical issues. The final section in each chapter illustrates the importance of a more systematic approach to intervention, which takes into account theoretical views of recovery from brain damage.
New to this edition:
This book will be invaluable for undergraduate students in Neuropsychology and students who wish to take the subject further to the various clinical fields.
