Editorial Reviews

"This volume... provides a welcome review incorporating current clinical findings and theoretical viewpoints. The editors begin with a highly readable overview of word-finding deficits in aphasia. Overall... found this volume to be well written and highly informative. A strength is its integration of clinical and theoretical, anatomic, and cognitive perspectives. This book should be useful to readers across many disciplines who have an interest in language and brain-behavior relationships."--JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY
