Cognitive Science and Clinical Disorders
Intended for cognitive psychologists, cognitive science researchers, clinical researchers and practitioners, and graduate students in psychology and cognitive science, this book bridges the gap between current research in cognitive science and contemporary clinical theory and practice. The book begins with the theoretical background to the intersection between cognitive and clinical science. It then goes onto to cover cognitive science models and theory as applied to particular clinical disorders, including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive, dissociative and conversion, personality, Alzheimer's disease, and reading disability.

"Timely... Written by experts... I highly recommend it to basic cognitive scientists, neuroscientists and all clinicians interested in the research findings which underpin their practice. Each chapter is relatively short and, therefore, very readable in spite of the wealth of theoretical and research information... I found the more theoretical chapters of Part 1 particularly useful in that they bring together in one place an abundance of up-to-date information that is not available in the usual clinical literature."--THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY
