Description

This reference text provides an insightful and unified synthesis of cognitive neuroscience and behavioral neurology. The strong clinical emphasis and outstanding illustrations will provide neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and psychologists with a solid foundation to the major neurobehavioral syndromes. With backgrounds in behavioural neurology, functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience, the two authors are in an ideal position to cover the anatomy, genetics, physiology, and cognitive neuroscience underlying these disorders. Their emphasis on therapy makes the book a "must read" for anyone who cares for patients with cognitive and behavioural disorders.show more

The writing style is concise, clear, readable. Clinical vignettes and example cases, drawn both from the authors' experience and the published literature, reinforce important concepts . . . Devinsky and D'Esposito have broken new ground with a fresh approach to the neurology of cognition and behavior . . . * Neurology *show more
