The SAGE Handbook of Clinical Neuropsychology
Clinical Neuropsychological Assessment and Diagnosis

Edited by:

May 2023 | 728 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Clinical Neuropsychology is a vast and varied field that focuses on the treatment, assessment and diagnosis of a range of cognitive disorders through a study and understanding of neuroanatomy and the relationship between the brain and human behavior.

This handbook focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of cognitive disorders.

It provides in-depth coverage on a variety of content, including psychometrics, neuropsychological test batteries (computer based cognitive assessment systems) and assessment applications.

This handbook is vital for clinical neuropsychologists and postgraduate students and researchers hoping to apply a knowledge of neuropsychology to clinical settings and effectively assess, diagnose and treat patients suffering from cognitive disorders.
