The field of clinical neuropsychology has grown substantially since the first edition of "e;Essentials of Neuropsychological Assessment"e; was published in 1987. While retaining much of its original structure, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded. Chapter 5-- "e;The Neuropsychological Examination"e;--has been broken into three separate chapters that focus on specific neuropsychological batteries. And three new chapters on brain imaging, neuroanatomy, and cross-cultural issues in neuropsychology have been added. The resulting new edtion is a substantial expansion upon the earlier one.
The book is written for recently-trained neuropsychology practitioners and PhD students in clinical psychology who are preparing for careers in neuropsychology. But it should also appeal to experienced clinicians who need a primer on neuropsychological assessment.
