This is a scholarly guide to human neuropsychology with a clinical focus. The authors have resisted the temptation to move towards a cognitive neuroscience text and keep focused on neural mechanisms underpinning behaviour. This edition is updated with excellent colour illustrations that highlight the rapid advances in knowledge gained from neuroimaging. There is also good coverage of social cognitive neuroscience - an emerging field in the neurosciences.
Who is it for? Someone who wants a wide perspective on neuropsychology.
Presentation - Wonderful illustrations, clear scholarly style.
Would you recommend it? I will gladly exchange my fifth edition for the sixth.
