This book is unique in that it gives equal weight to the psychological and neurological approaches to the study of cognitive deficits in patients with brain lesions. The result is a balanced and comprehensive analysis of cognitive skills and abilities that departs from the more usual syndrome approach favored by neurologists and the anti-localizationist perspective of cognitive psychologists. It gives an introductory account of the core subject matter of cognitive neuropsychology. It provides a comprehensive review of the major deficits of human cognitive function. It offers the expertise of two scientists who are also practicing neuropsychologists.
