Advances in neuroimaging in the last ten years have been nothing short of spectacular. Localization and Neuroimaging in Neuropsychology presents a comprehensive and thoroughly current review of theory and methodology in this rapidly advancing field. The first eight chapters discuss methodologies including EEG, PET, and MRI. The next nine chapters discuss localization information with respect to specific symptoms and syndromes, including aphasia, alexia, agraphia, apraxia, agnosia, dementia, and other cognitive deficits.

Review quote

"The authors successfully update the reader on this rapidly evolving field. All of the major types of neuroimaging techniques...are represented...Readable graphs, charts, diagrams and neuroimaging photos are profuse and add dramatic clarity to the topics discussed...Several high quality colored images dazzle the reader...Highly recommended for science and health science center library collections."
"This is an excellent account of modern investigative techniques and of current thoughts regarding the localization of cognitive functions...The book is essential for the neurologist with an interest in higher cortical function."
"Progress in neuroimaging and neuropsychology necessitates a frequent update of continuously forthcoming data. This volume presents a comprehensive, current review of theory and methodology in the field."
"This book succeeds in conveying the excitement engendered by...new techniques, which permit us to study more directly than ever before the links between mind and brain."
