Book Description

Memory Disorders in Clinical Practice provides a comprehensive discussion of memory disorders, focusing on objective studies of memory disorder rather than simple clinical descriptions of memory impairment. The book is principally concerned with acquired neurological disorders, and so most congenital and psychiatric conditions are not covered in depth, although these are occasionally referred to where they relate to particular neurological problems.
The book begins with a discussion of memory assessment in clinical practice, covering the assessment of specific memory deficits and memory test batteries. This is followed by separate chapters on memory deficits caused by cerebrovascular disease, cerebral tumors, penetrating and blunt head injuries, dementia, infections of the central nervous system, chronic toxic or deficiency states, epilepsy, and ablation/disconnection of cerebral tissue. The book concludes with Appendices containing sources for materials which may be of use in designing memory tests for the assessment of neurological patients; and sources for information/materials relating to the remediation of memory disorders.
