This book is unique in that it gives equal weight to the psychological and neurological approaches to the study of cognitive deficits in patients with brain lesions. The result is a balanced and comprehensive analysis of cognitive skills and abilities that departs from the more usual syndrome approach favoured by neurologists and the anti-localizationalist perspective of cognitive psychologists.

"The text is well written, avoids jargon, and clearly assembles theoretical and anatomical considerations in a wide variety of contexts... this excellent volume will be a boon to a wide variety of neuroscientists." --JOURNAL OF NEUROLOGY, NEUROSURGERY AND PSYCHIATRY "Cognitive Neuropsychology: A Clinical Introduction by R. McCarthy and E. Warrington is, quite simply, the clearest, most comprehensive, and up-to-date account of the discipline in print. The volume's coverage is exemplary for those areas where a substantial database exists: object and face recognition, spatial perception, voluntary action, perception, comprehension and production of language, reading and writing, arithmetic calculation, memory, and problem solving." --NATURE
