This remarkable new book provides a unique, practical guide to cognitive testing for clinicians. Incorporating the enormous advances in the understanding of cognitive function over the past decade, the author - himself a practising behavioural neurologist - presents the theory behind cognitive assessment and advocates a practical approach to testing. Twelve case histories illustrate this pragmatic approach and tips on physical examination are presented making this an invaluable aid to bedside assessment. A useful appendix including standardized mental test schedules supplements the text. This unique guide will be invaluable to every clinician who wishes to enhance standards of cognitive assessment.
