Neuropsychology is a vast field, overlapping with psychiatry, medicine and neuroscience. It essentially addresses the relationship between mind and brain through the study of dysfunction, with a range of research paradigms drawing from cognitive, clinical, neurological and neuroscientific perspectives. Neuropsychology has a long history, but newer methods for analyzing the brain (neuroimaging) have taken the field on an exciting new trajectory in the past 10 years.
This six-volume collection provides a set of original sources that have proved to be popular, influential and enduring, and explicitly integrates modern neuroscience into neuropsychological endeavours. It represents the historical evolution of the field by presenting a set of papers which guide the reader from early thinking, often at a theoretical level, through the core empirical experiments and case studies which represent the advances of the field, up to more modern perspectives provided by neuroscientific accounts of brain and behaviour.
Volume One: Conceptual and Historical Issues revisits early works to provide a context for key topics that are still being investigated by a range of neuropsychological methods.
Volume Two: Cognitive Neuropsychology presents some of the "natural experiments" that are brought about by various injuries and diseases.
Volume Three: Clinical and Applied Neuropsychology explores how neuropsychological assessment is used in clinical and applied settings.
Volume Four: Cognitive Neuropsychiatry shows how neuropsychological paradigms can further our understanding of cognitive impairments traditionally associated with psychiatric disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, and developmental conditions.
Volume Five: Imaging Brain and Behaviour describes the key techniques that are used to measure the activity of the brain in typical and atypical circumstances.
Volume Six: Stimulating and Disrupting the Brain illustrates how various interventions can be used to affect brain function.
About the Author
Chris Moulin is a cognitive neuropsychologist. His current research interests focus on neuropsychological impairments of memory. In particular, he is interested in the interaction of executive function and long-term memory. Research themes include metacognition (such as knowing what you know), inhibition (such as suppressing unwanted information), and the sensations of memory (for example déjà vu).
Martin Conway is a cognitive psychologist. His current research interests focus on autobiographical memory; impairments of memory following brain injury; disruptions of memory in psychiatric illness; changes in memory across the lifespan; the self and memory; motivation and memory; emotion and memory; expert legal testimony on memory.
