Beschreibung:

From translating the patient's medical records and test results to providing recommendations, the neuropsychological evaluation incorporates the science and practice of neuropsychology, neurology, and psychological sciences. The Little Black Book of Neuropsychology brings the practice and study of neuropsychology into concise step-by-step focus-without skimping on scientific quality. This one-of-a-kind assessment reference complements standard textbooks by outlining signs, symptoms, and complaints according to neuropsychological domain (such as memory, language, or executive function), with descriptions of possible deficits involved, inpatient and outpatient assessment methods, and possible etiologies.
Quite simply, this is an essential training tool for those learning neuropsychology. It provides a concise yet academically rigorous overview of clinical neuropsychology from a presenting syndrome or symptoms approach. Because clinical neuropsychology practice necessitates an understanding of functional neuroanatomy, a basic review is provided along with a description of a basic neurobehavioral examination. This book is not meant to supplant the longer, more encompassing texts of clinical neuropsychology or neurology. Rather, it supplements these textbooks as a concise and user-friendly reference guide. The unifying thread for this book is the practical approach to assessing a clinical problem (sign, symptom, or complaint) and applying an algorithmic rationale to the associated brain-behavior relationship. Thus, it is designed to be a practical book for the daily practice of clinical neuropsychology.
