It has been almost a decade since the First Edition of this book was published. While the authors have retained the same general structure-with the addition of a set of three chapters on psychosocial outcomes-virtually the entire book has been rewritten. There are two new chapters on the Iowa-Benton approach and on computers and memory in Part I. Part II has been expanded and reorganized. There are new chapters on Tourette's syndrome, acute and chronic hypoxemia, HIV infection, schizophrenia, and movement disorders. Part III is entirely new, and it focuses on life quality outcome in head injury and pulmonary disease. Considerably enlarged in size, this book will remain the basic reference on the neuropsychological aspects of diseases affecting brain and behavior.
