This is a stimulating synthesis of the theory and methodology of cognitive neuroscience and the clinical insights of behavioral neurology. With its concise treatments of a wide range of cognitive disorders, the book provides an invaluable and readable manual for both clinicians and non-clinicians, researchers and practitioners alike.
