This volume is an elementary introduction to neuropsychology for beginning students. It assumes no previous knowledge of the subject. The book begins with a description of the structure and functioning of the nervous system, and goes on to outline the mechanisms of sensation and perception, particularly vision and hearing. Further chapters give a concise account of the structure and functions of cortical and subcortical areas of the brain. Each chapter is accompanied by discussion questions and practical exercises, and the book is illustrated with more than 50 diagrams and photographs. For more advanced students each chapter describes two particularly interesting case studies of neuropsychological research, highlighting the concerns and methods of psychologists working in the field.
