Description

Written by a clinical neuropsychologist and a cognitive psychologist, this book clarifies the various conceptualizations of attention that are encountered in the literature. The authors discuss the psychological and neurobiological theories of attention and critically review the literature on attentional deficits in common neurological conditions, e.g. traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy. The material is organized according to the types of tasks used to investigate attention. It has a practical focus covering the assessment of attention, the effect of attentional deficits on daily life, and the cognitive rehabilitation of impairments. This will be an invaluable summary of the field for all those called upon to test or work with people who have attentional deficits.show more
