Neuropsychological assessment of neuropsychiatric disorders by Igor Grant( Book )

19 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique text combines a timely review of the methods of assessment used by major neuropsychological laboratories with an up-to-date discussion of neuropsychiatric disorders. The contributors discuss the rationale behind each assessment strategy, stressing the importance of gathering evidence from a number of complementary tests and procedures, and consider neuropsychological findings as seen in the most frequently occurring neurologic/psychiatric disorders: dementia, depression, alcoholism, epilepsy, losed head injury, schizophrenia, and drug abuse. Both clinical aspects and research findings are covered, with an integration of theory with practice where possible. The book provides a rich source of information for psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and other professionals concerned with adult behavior

Exploring the history of neuropsychology : selected papers by Arthur Lester Benton( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Benton has long been recognized as a distinguished researher, an influential educator, and a gifted writer. Early in his career, he was struck by the extreme divergence in the acceptance and usage of concepts and terms such as 'agnosia', 'amnesic aphasia', and 'apraxia' by leading figures in the then young field of neuropsychology/behavioral neurology. This prompted him to explore the literature of 19th century neurology and led to an abiding interest in the historical background of current developments, which often proved to be the outgrowth of earlier formulations. In this collection o

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human Development and Criminal Behavior proposes an exten- sive agenda for crime research. The book is part of a pio- neering effort to understand the causes of crime, particu- larly its developmental course. It defines and sets the con- ditions necessary to conduct an accelerated longitudinal study of individuals at risk to become engaged in criminal careers. This work offers a blueprint for research to eluci- date and possibly prevent crime in our society

Clinical neuropsychology : a pocket handbook for assessment( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As with earlier editions, we hope that this book will serve as a diagnostic starting point, providing a roadmap for evaluation and additional avenues for exploration with every patient. The content of this book has been significantly updated. Not only are there new topics covered in their own chapters (e.g., Chapter 7 on cultural neuropsychology, Chapter 25 on drug abuse and impulse control disorders, Chapter 27 on somatic symptom disorders) but also each chapter integrates the latest developments in the field. This includes information regarding DSM-5 in relevant chapters and studies of functional brain imaging throughout the book. In addition to the novel design and new content, the organization of Clinical Neuropsychology has been updated. The handbook consists of four sections: The chapters in Part I, Clinical Neuropsychology: General Issues, are procedural and methodological in nature. Parts II (Neurological Disorders, in which many of the most common neurologic problems that neuropsychologists evaluate are reviewed), III (Neuropsychological Syndromes, describing the core features and assessment of the "wheelhouse" of neuropsychology), and IV (Psychiatric Disorders and Behavioral Syndromes, in which the most common psychiatric problems that neuropsychologists evaluate are reviewed) are focused on clinical assessment of the disorder or syndrome. Although the book covers a broad range of neuropsychology topics, the reader should be aware that the specific disorders and problems faced by children (and hence pediatric neuropsychologists) receive lighter treatment than adult disorders. The growth in pediatric neuropsychology has been tremendous, and attempting to cover the entire life span in a single volume is simply not feasible. We have included chapters on the core issues in the assessment of children (Chapter 6) and a chapter on the most common developmental disorders that neuropsychologists evaluate (Chapter 22), as well as discussing relevant pediatric issues in certain disorders (e.g., Chapter 9). However, it is my opinion that the field will benefit from a handbook specifically devoted to the neuropsychological evaluation of children"--Book.
