The first edition of the Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychology set a new standard in the field in its scope, breadth, and scholarship. The second edition comprises authoritative chapters that will both enlighten and challenge readers from across allied fields of neuroscience, whether novice, mid-level, or senior-level professionals. It will familiarize the young trainee through to the accomplished professional with fundamentals of the science of neuropsychology and its vast body of research, considering the field’s historical underpinnings, its evolving practice and research methods, the application of science to informed practice, and recent developments and relevant cutting edge work. Its precise commentary recognizes obstacles that remain in our clinical and research endeavors and emphasizes the prolific innovations in interventional techniques that serve the field’s ultimate aim: to better understand brain-behavior relationships and facilitate adaptive functional competence in patients.
The second edition contains 50 new and completely revised chapters written by some of the profession's most recognized and prominent scholar-clinicians, broadening the scope of coverage of the ever expanding field of neuropsychology and its relationship to related neuroscience and psychological practice domains. It is a natural evolution of what has become a comprehensive reference textbook for neuropsychology practitioners.

Dr. Ricker has a long record of federally funded research examining cognitive impairment, recovery, and rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury. His current research interests include the examination of altered cerebral blood flow and functional connectivity as they relate to cognitive impairment after brain injury, using modalities such as functional MRI, positron emission tomography, and diffusion tensor imaging.Review:
"Simply Superb! Kudos to the Editors for producing a sequel that outshines the original and continues to set the standard for textbooks in clinical neuropsychology in its scope and scholarship. Morgan and Ricker have amassed an all-star cast of contributors who present a well curated coverage of the essential aspects of contemporary evidence-based neuropsychological practice with the expertise and depth that will satisfy the ardent graduate student as well as the seasoned academic and clinician. Every neuropsychologist should have the Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychology on his or her bookshelf." - Gordon J. Chelune, University of Utah School of Medicine
