Current Issues in Neuropsychology

About the Series

Current Issues in Neuropsychology is a series of edited books that reflect the state-of-the-art in areas of current and emerging interest in the psychological study of brain damage, behaviour and cognition.

Each volume is tightly focused on a particular topic. The editors of individual volumes are leading figures in their areas and provide an introductory overview, with chapters contributed by international experts.

Each book will reflect an issue, area of uncertainty or controversy, with contributors providing a range of views on the central topic. Examples include the question of whether technology can enhance, support or replace impaired cognition, and how best to understand, assess and manage alcohol related brain damage.
