Summary

This text balances experimental and clinical perspectives with a survey of a variety of mental functions. In a conversational style, the author provides clear, accessible explanations of difficult concepts, making use of analogies and case studies to illustrate them. A consistent structure throughout each chapter defines a mental function and the role of each part or parts of the brain in that function, followed by a discussion of what neuropsychological syndromes say about the cognitive and neural organization of the mental function.

Chapter pedagogy includes an opening case study to pique student interest and preview chapter topics, plus an outline that provides a conceptual structure of material; special interest boxes that provide students a better feel for an issue in neuropsychological research or an implication of neuropsychology in everyday life; summaries for review; boldface key terms; and a glossary at the end of the text.

  • New! Extensive coverage of the latest research in the field with over 600 new references.
  • New! A new chapter focuses on how neurons communicate.
  • New! Chapter outlines are presented in a bulleted format for a more accessible summary of key concepts.
  • New! Updated and expanded coverage of state-of-the art research techniques, in including MRI, optical imaging, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as information on how these methods work and new findings based on them.
  • New! An extensively revised art program includes new illustrations and more color.
