Über diesen Titel
Cognitive neuropsychology has now established a major place in the teaching of undergraduate psychology degrees and is an important topic of postgraduate research. The subject is also of increasing interest to clinicians because of its links with devising remediation procedures for people with brain injury. This text enables the reader to get an in-depth overview of this important field. The coverage of topics begins with an overview of the subject, including issues such as research strategy and advances in neuroimaging. Following this are chapters of blindsight, agnosia, facial processing impairments and the rapidly growing area of neglect. The next chapter is devoted to the studies of the split brain. Two chapters then cover the developments in devising functional architectures of the language system from the observation of discrete language impairments. Various aspects of memory impairments are then discussed, and the book ends with a consideration of frontal lobe functions. At various points, the contribution of connectionist modelling to cognitive neuropsychology are covered.Review:
""Professor Parkin's book will be a useful teaching tool. It is enjoyable and easy to read. I especially applaud the effort to bring together evidence from different sources to test hypotheses about cognitive processes. The orchestration of these diverse lines of investigation is the foundation of the emerging field of cognitive science. This effort is one of the primary distinctive features of the text."
-Argye Hillis, Johns Hopkins University."
"I liked this book and will certainly recommend it for the courses I teach. The material is up-to-date and readers are taken to the cutting edge of research in cognitive neuropsychology. The book is written in a clear accessible style, and with humor, and the described appear as real people with concerning difficulties."
-Elaine Funnell, Royal Holloway, University of London."
