Clinical Neuropsychology: A Pocket Handbook for Assessment, Second Edition is a practical reference source for neuropsychologists, interns, and trainees working in hospitals. With over 100 quick-reference tables, lists, diagrams, photos, and decision trees, this book offers guidance through the complicated decision-making processes of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Because neuopsychologists now consult in many different health care settings - including emergency rooms, oncology departments, infectious disease programs, cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry - having a guide that covers such a broad array of illnesses is absolutely critical. This new edition builds on the success of the best-selling first edition by providing cutting-edge information on how to use and interpret neuroimaging technologies and how to integrate pharmacological approaches into treatment. A new chapter has been included to introduce the busy clinician to the range of established and novel neuroimaging technologies that have seen tremendous technological improvements over the past seven years. In addition, chapters were revised with the intent of adding more specific information related to the neurochemical bases for various disorders, and when appropriate, more information on currently accepted pharmacologic treatment approaches. The reader will also find other new additions, including chapters on neuro-oncology, schizophrenia, late-life depression, and adult ADHD.
