Neuropsychological Assessment of Neuropsychiatric Disorders
It has been almost a decade since the First Edition of this book was published. While the authors have retained the same general structure-with the addition of a set of three chapters on psychosocial outcomes-virtually the entire book has been rewritten. There are two new chapters on the Iowa-Benton approach and on computers and memory in Part I. Part II has been expanded and reorganized. There are new chapters on Tourette's syndrome, acute and chronic hypoxemia, HIV infection, schizophrenia, and movement disorders. Part III is entirely new, and it focuses on life quality outcome in head injury and pulmonary disease. Considerably enlarged in size, this book will remain the basic reference on the neuropsychological aspects of diseases affecting brain and behavior.

Back cover copy
The second edition has raised the high standard of its predecessor even further. While the editors have retained the same general structure - with the addition of a set of three chapters on psychosocial outcomes - virtually the entire book has been rewritten to reflect recent developments. Part 1 contains two new chapters on the Iowa-Benton approach and on cognitive screening methods. The original chapter on computers has been replaced with a more specialized chapter on computers and memory. Part II has been expanded and reorganized. There are new chapters on Tourette's syndrome, acute and chronic hypoxemia, HIV infection, schizophrenia, and Huntington's disease. The chapter on Parkinson's disease now incorporates a broader discussion of the disease and other movement disorders. Part III is entirely new, and it focuses on life quality outcome in head injury and pulmonary disease. Considerably enlarged, this book will remain the basic reference on the neuropsychological aspects of diseases affecting brain and behavior.
