BeschreibungCompletely revised and updated, this third edition remains an unparalleled reference on the assessment of patients by non-neuropsychologists. Expanding the section on neuroanatomy, the book discusses new findings on age related cognitive changes, PTSD, late onset dementia, and Alzheimer's and includes a new chapter on malingering and deception. The book covers new neurodiagnostic procedures and evaluates a wide range of neuropsychological tests in terms of their strengths, limitations, validity, and reliability as well as methods of scoring and interpretation. It presents several case studies and sample medico-legal reports, a glossary of terms, a list of medications, and a quick-reference summary of the tests detailed in the book.
