Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice, II

Synopsis

Compiling reviews of the recent literature is a long-established tradition in the laboratory and clinical sciences, providing a useful and timely summary of advances in the field. Neuropsychology has matured as a science and profession to the point where a like effort to summarize the status and direction of the field is needed. The authors of chapters in the second volume of Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice are authorities in the subjects they review; they offer investigators, practitioners, and students an overview of the important developments in neuropsychology that cannot be found from perusal of journals alone. Interest in the reviews collected in this volume is likely to go beyond the discipline of neuropsychology and will extend to those working in the science of brain-behavior relationships, the study of disease and injury as they affect brain function, and the rehabilitation of individuals who have suffered brain injury. A unique and valuable resource, Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice provides the means for clinicians and researchers to acquire a sound, up-to-date perspective on important advances and future directions in the field.

Excerpt

In Volume II of the Series the reader will once again find chapters by authors with distinguished credentials for summarizing recent research that has dominated the literature in neuropsychology and been prominent in workshops offered at professional conferences. This volume keeps to the promise of providing the profession with a resource for staying on top of the influential clinical and scientific studies of the past 12–15 months, for focusing on specific areas of interest, and for expanding the breadth and depth of awareness of the overall activity in the profession. The authors provide a rich consolidation of the important work that is being done in our centers, universities, and practices that would not otherwise be possible by perusing the literature alone. The range of topics included in Volume II likewise keeps to the mission of the Series of having applicability to practice, to the investigation of the science of neuropsychology, and to offer theoretical considerations to move the profession forward.

There has been a minor change in the name appended to the Series, which is now officially titled, Neuropsychology: A Review of Science and Practice. The editors believe this more clearly describes what the Series is about and what it purports to accomplish in this and future volumes. With this timely review neuropsychology now joins the medical and physical sciences that have long provided their readers with the means to be at the forefront of all that is new and significant in their professions.
