Description

An illuminating account of the neurological basis of the components of thinking such as language, memory, visual imagery, attention, and higher mental control. Organized by functional categories, disorders are integrated to outline a neural basis for thought processing. Clinical case histories illustrate disorders of thinking based on focal brain damage or more widespread cerebral dysfunction. A fascinating and provoking read for those concerned with the relationship between the brain and behaviour.show more
