Summary

This text balances experimental and clinical perspectives with a survey of a variety of mental functions. In a conversational style, the author provides clear, accessible explanations of difficult concepts, making use of analogies and case studies to illustrate them. A consistent structure throughout each chapter defines a mental function and the role of each part or parts of the brain in that function, followed by a discussion of what neuropsychological syndromes say about the cognitive and neural organization of the mental function. Extensive coverage of current research in the field includes over 600 new references new to the Second Edition. Updated and expanded coverage of state-of-the art research techniques includes MRI, optical imaging, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as information on how these methods work and new findings based on them.
