Fully revised and updated, this pocket handbook for clinical assessment covers a comprehensive range of neurological, neuropsychological, neuropsychiatric, and neurobehavioral syndromes and disorders.

Now in its fourth edition, this ready reference helps the busy clinician or doctoral-level trainee select from among hundreds of tests and assessment techniques in clinical neuropsychology. It guides clinicians in developing tailored, hypothesis-driven approaches for assessing patients with a broad range of common neuropsychological syndromes and neurological disorders.

This book is an invaluable diagnostic guide designed to fit into a lab coat pocket for accessible and immediate use.

Major updates to the new edition include:

A revamped approach to contemporary neuropsychological assessment that incorporates cultural factors, mood, emotion and affect, medications, cognitive functioning and electrophysiology data, as well as emerging trends including tele-neuropsychology, positive neuropsychology, and consumer-focused reports.
New and expanded coverage of topics including updates on neurodegenerative disorders and mild cognitive impairment (MCI); lifestyle interventions to maximize cognitive functioning in MCI and dementia; chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), autoimmune disorders, and motor disorders.
An increased emphasis on neuropsychiatric syndromes. New topics include intellectual disabilities, the impact of marijuana and alcohol on cognitive functioning, anxiety disorders/PTSD, and an expanded focus on mood disorders.
Updated online resources to support teaching and learning through neuroimaging figures and video demonstrations of exam techniques, and extended reading lists that have been expanded and more fully integrated into assessment chapters.
