This practical volume covers all aspects of the neuropsychological assessment of children, adults, and the elderly. Three sections deal with-developmental considerations-the various neurobehavioral disorders-and specialized assessment of individual cognitive functions, including abstraction, memory, language, spatial perception, and motor skills. Two noteworthy chapters discuss neuropsychiatric disorders and assessment methods used in behavioral neurology. This interdisciplinary book addresses not only the needs of neuropsychologists but also those of other psychologists and rehabilitation specialists as well.
