Lesion Analysis in Neuropsychology

; Antonio R. Damasio

Knowledge about neuroanatomy has played a major role in the understanding of the brain mechanisms behind psychological processes. Nowhere has the role been stronger than in the study of the relation between specific areas of brain damage and changes in perception, memory, and language. Les mer

Knowledge about neuroanatomy has played a major role in the understanding of the brain mechanisms behind psychological processes. Nowhere has the role been stronger than in the study of the relation between specific areas of brain damage and changes in perception, memory, and language. This book is about that particular approach to brain and behaviour studies-the lesion method-as applied to humans. It reviews recent advances brought about by the advent of modern
neuroimaging methods (such as X-ray computerized tomagraphy and magnetic resonance scanning) and discusses how the new findings are modifying neuropsychological thinking and helping to develop new theories regarding the neural substrates of cognition. The book also describes a method for the analysis
of neuroimaging data that can help researchers and clinicians in neuropsychology to use imaging techniques as a source of neuroanatomical data. Included in the book are magnetic resonance (MR) and computerized tomographic (CT) images of exceptional quality. Based on a decade's work by two neuroscientists of worldwide reputation, this unique volume will be of value to neurologists, neuropsychologists, basic neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, neurolinguists and other researchers and
clinicians interested in the relation between brain structure and behaviour.
