Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book provides a brief introduction to neuropsychology for those not familiar with the subject. It is arranged in two parts. The first part introduces some of the basics of physiology. The structures of the central nervous system, methods used in neuropsychology research, the lateral nature of the brain and the neuropsychology of sensory and motor function are discussed. The second part looks at higher order cortical function. It contains chapters on language, memory, perception and thinking. This book will be ideal for undergraduates studying this topic for the first time and presents complex material in a digestible and stimulating format.
