This book provides the broadest, most detailed survey of child neuropsychology available today.

Part II covers newborn and infant assessment, critical periods, disconnection syndromes and other relevant issues in developmental neuropsychology. PartIII discusses in detail disorders of development such as anoxia, malnutrition, and head trauma. Part IV deals with functional disturbances, including neurological soft signs, attentional disorders, language disorders and emotional and behavioural disorders. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. It includes new discussion of such conditions as infant HIV infection and Tourette's syndrome, as well as new chapters on newborn and infant assessment and on cognitive development in relation to brain functions.show more
