This text presents the psychological features of all the common neurological and medical disorders, as well as some that are not so common. It demystifies cognitive profiles and, thus, enables neurologists to have an idea of what and what not to expect in many disorders. It covers neurodegenerative cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's, as well as other common neurological disorders complicated by such things as stroke, brain tumors, or multiple sclerosis. Larner (neurology, Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery, UK) aims to review current knowledge of neurocognitive and neuropsychological impairments that can occur in neurological disorders, as well as in some general medical conditions. The material is organized in 12 chapters, including two new ones: sleep-related disorders and psychiatric disorders in the cognitive function clinic. All other chapters have been revised and updated. This concise and well-organized theoretical volume, a companion of a previous practical one, is targeted for neurologists, general physicians, and other health-care professionals working with cognitively impaired patients. There is a helpful outline at the beginning of each chapter, as well as tables, and references. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
