Book Description

April 12, 2010 0195342682 978-0195342680 1
This book provides a detailed account of intellectual, other neuropsychological and behavioral manifestations of general pediatric diseases. The conditions discussed include the whole range of pediatric diseases - genetic syndromes, other congenital conditions, metabolic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, infectious, immunologic, toxic, trauma, and neoplastic, as well as sensory disabilities including deafness and blindness. Although the book is not intended to discuss cognitive and behavioral manifestations of conditions usually considered to be primary neurological disease, some of those, including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy and epilepsy, are included.

Where possible, a "translational" approach is used, linking the behavioral and cognitive manifestations of these conditions, to the underlying structural, chemical or genetic abnormalities and their effect on the brain, and, in turn, on behavior and cognition. At the same time, included are significant psychosocial factors. Together, those factors have a major effect on patients' performance, including school performance, and on their families.

This book is unique in its extensive coverage of the major pediatric conditions and of the detailed neurological, neuropsychological and behavioral aspects of each condition.

Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is an essential guide to the neuropsychological and neurobehavioral consequence of pediatric diseases for healthcare providers working with a pediatric population." --Doody's


"This is a well-bound and sturdy, large format text. The page layout is attractive, and the typeface is easy to read. Tables, black-and-white illustrations, and figures are used sparingly but effectively. There is an extensive index that appears to be accurate and proved useful to the reviewer. Child neurologists and their trainees will find this a valuable reference." --Pediatric Neurology
