Neuropsychology and the Dementias book. Siobhan Hart, James M. Semple.

Neuropsychology and the Dementias book. This book summarizes current knowledge of the neuropsychology of dementia, highlights the multifaceted nature of the problem, and argues that an input from neuropsychologists can facilitate the advances made by other neuroscientists investigating dementia. The book shows that the study of dementia has caused something of a paradigm shift within neuropsychology itself as a scientific discipline.

By Siobhan Hart, James M. For Instructors Request Inspection Copy. Major advances in brain-imaging techniques and the cognitive modelling of the impairments following brain injury promise a wider understanding of the nature of the representation of cognition and behaviour in the damaged and undamaged brain. The aim of the Brain, Behaviour and Cognition series is to publish a wide range of books that present comprehensive and up-to-date overviews of current developments in specific areas of interest. These books will be of particular interest to those working with the brain-damaged.

Studies on Neuropsychology, Neurology and Cognition

Studies on Neuropsychology, Neurology and Cognition. This volume demonstrates that even among stroke and dementia-free persons, several traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, plus a spectrum of cardiovascular diseases and their medical and surgical treatments, are associated with brain abnormalities and neurocognitive difficulties.

Most practitioners of neuropsychology hold advanced degrees in clinical psychology. This is supplemented with specialized training in neuropsychology at the postdoctoral level, including intensive didactic and applied clinical experiences.

2003, J. K. Sutherland and others published Brain Behaviour Relationships in Dementia (Neuropsychology).

A correlation cluster was found in both temporal lobes, mainly in the left one, between 99m Tc-HMPAO SPECT and the Buschke SRT in a recent European cooperative study in patients with mild to moderate AD. 38 In a correlation study with 99m Tc-ECD, significant sites of correlation were found in several regions, including the left postcentral gyrus (BA 3) and inferior parietal lobule (BA 40) (thus very close to the present correlation achieved with 99m Tc-ECD).

Dementia is one of the most pressing problems that currently faces planners and providers of health care today. This has resulted in an explosion in research activity with the consequent growth of knowledge about all aspects of dementia and in particular about Alzheimer's disease. This book summarizes current knowledge of the neuropsychology of dementia, highlights the multifaceted nature of the problem, and argues that an input from neuropsychologists can facilitate the advances made by other neuroscientists investigating dementia. The book shows that the study of dementia has caused something of a paradigm shift within neuropsychology itself as a scientific discipline.
