Neuropsychology offers a broad introduction to neuropsychology, functional neuroanatomy, neuropathology, clinical assessment, and the behavioural sequelae associated with neurological disturbance. It provides understanding of the common neurological disorders and enables informed choices in care. Important insight into differential diagnosis is given, as well as help to extend and support the health care role through an introduction to basic bed-side assessment techniques and their interpretation. It provides knowledge to assist health professionals in empowering patients in their recovery or rehabilitation and is an essential workplace manual.

This book will benefit both those who have access to neuropsychological input and those who do not and will appeal to the more practical needs of practitioners. It bridges the theory-practice gap and can be used by all health team members for effective patient management. As such it provides a grounding in a number of important areas central to both general and specialised nursing care and associated disciplines including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy.
