University of Queensland Library. The handbook reviews common dementias including Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and other less common dementias. It is organized into sections discussing diagnosis, epidemiology, and neurobiology including neuropathology and neuroimaging ; assessment, including cultural issues, methodology, and neuropsychology; and primary, secondary, and tertiary intervention strategies.
The handbook is intended as a resource for all psychologists and other health professionals that serve persons and families impacted by neurodegenerative disease. This handbook covers the scientific and clinical neuropsychological advances and their application in forensic contexts. A comprehensive assessment guide that has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest changes in the rapidly maturing field of clinical neuropsychology.
This third edition expertly leads neuropsychologists and trainees through the complicated process of assessing, diagnosing, and treating an enormous range of neurologic, neuropsychological, psychiatric, and behavioral disorders and syndromes. The Clinical Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia is a unique work that provides clinicians with expert guidance and a hands-on approach to neuropsychological practice with older adults.

The book will be divided into two sections, the first addressing special considerations for the evaluation of older adults, and the second half focusing on common referral questions likely to be encountered when working with this age group. Geared toward beginning as well as veteran clinicians, the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Epilepsy offers readers a skills-based framework for assessment and treatment, using current evidence and standardized terminology. Expert coverage reviews widely-used methods for evaluating key aspects of patient functioning MRI, MEG, electrocortical mapping, the Wada test , and presents guidelines for psychotherapeutic and cognitive remediation strategies in treating comorbid psychiatric conditions.
Given the diversity of the patient population, additional chapters spotlight issues specific to subgroups including high- and low-functioning as well as geriatric and pediatric patients. This integrative hands-on approach benefits a range of practitioners across medical and neurological settings. This book collects and synthesizes the latest thinking on the condition in its variety of cognitive and behavioral presentations, matched by a variety of clinical responses.
Acknowledging the continuum of injury and the multi-stage nature of recovery, expert contributors review salient research data and offer clinical guidelines for the neuropsychologist working with TBI patients, detailing key areas of impairment, brief and comprehensive assessment methods and proven rehabilitation strategies.
Taken together, these chapters provide a framework for best serving a wide range of TBI patients including children, elders, and patients in multidisciplinary settings and model treatment that is evidence-based and relevant. This book investigates brain asymmetry from the perspective of functional neural systems theory, a foundational approach for the topic.
This ambitious and accessible guide reviews innovative technologies enhancing the field of neuropsychological testing. Starting with the premise that standard batteries--some nearly a century old--lag behind in our era of neuroimaging, genomic studies, psychophysiology, and informatics, it presents digital measures offering more efficient administration, more accurate data, and wider clinical applications.
Ecological validity and evidence-based science are key themes in these advances, from virtual environments and assessment of social cognition to the shift toward situational reliability and away from lab-created constructs. These chapters also demonstrate how high-tech assessment tools can complement or supplement traditional pencil-and-paper measures without replacing them outright. The Clinical Neuropsychology Study Guide and Board Review provides an easy to study volume with sample questions and recommended readings that are specifically designed to help individuals prepare for the ABCN written examination.

In addition, this book can also be used as a teaching tool for graduate students and trainees at various levels. The format is geared toward exam preparation and is much less dense than a typical textbook. To augment the study guide, a recommended readings list at the end of each chapter provides references to more comprehensive materials considered important or seminal in each topic area.
This volume explores the topic of markers framed around the constructs of cognitive and neural systems. This book may be especially relevant to researchers and clinical practitioners in psychiatry and neuropsychology and to cognitive neuroscientists interested in the intersection of neuroscience with genomics, phenomics and other omics disciplines. A major focus of this book is on the mild cognitive impairment prodrome of the common dementias.
