"I am pleased to include this text in my library, and I am confident that it will serve as an excellent resource for years to come."--PsycCRITIQUES This book serves as an A-Z reference that addresses the neuropsychological aspects of 300 neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neuromedical disorders. Each entry follows a 5 section structure that will cover (1) essential features of the disorder (2) physiological basis of the disorder (3) neuropsychological and other clinical presentation (4) assessment and diagnostic practices (5) evidence-based treatments and interventions. This book is written for clinical professionals and students in training to aid in clinical awareness, diagnostic accuracy, and intervention successfulness. The text goes beyond the emotional and behavioral aspects of each disorder and views the broader impacts of the symptoms. This approach emphasizes the importance of looking at the other functional impacts of these manifestations (e.g. cognitive deficits secondary to depression, orthodopaedic ambulation issues). The emphasis on neuropsychological sequelae, physiological basis, and means of diagnosing and treating of 300 conditions across the lifespan make this the most comprehensive resource available to professionals in and around neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and the behavioral neurosciences. Key Features: Presents 300 highly-structured entries providing disorder features, pathology and physiology, clinical representation, assessment and diagnosis, and evidence-based treatments and interventions Covers neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neuromedical disorders across the lifespan (pediatric, adult, and geriatric populations) Includes interventions and methods of treatment for the outcomes patients may experience

Susannah Cahalan ist jung, attraktiv, frisch verliebt, eine aufstrebende Journalistin – und gerät über Nacht in den schlimmsten Albtraum ihres Lebens. Innerhalb kürzester Zeit erkrankt sie schwer, leidet an Wahnvorstellungen und wird binnen weniger Wochen zum Schwerstpflegefall in der Psychiatrie. Vollgepumpt mit Medikamenten wird sie ans Bett gefesselt und vegetiert vor sich hin – dem Tod näher als dem Leben. Doch ihre Familie gibt nicht auf bis endlich der renommierte Neurologe Souhel Najjar hinzugezogen wird. Er findet heraus, dass Susannah an einer erst vor kurzem entdeckten Autoimmunerkrankung leidet, in deren Verlauf der Körper das eigene Gehirn angreift und Symptome wie Schizophrenie, Autismus und Wahnvorstellungen erzeugt. Einmal richtig diagnostiziert, sorgen die geeigneten Medikamente rasch und dauerhaft für Genesung und Susannah gewinnt ihr Leben zurück. Ihre Schilderung des Leidensweges ist eine bewegende und aufregende Geschichte über Familie, Liebe, Hoffnung und darüber, wie sich ein perfektes Leben innerhalb kürzester Zeit in eine Katastrophe verwandeln kann. Ein fesselndes Buch, das man nicht aus der Hand legen kann, bis die letzte Seite verschlungen ist.

Oliver Sacks ist berühmt für seine brillanten Geschichten, die uns tief in die Welt des menschlichen Geistes und Gehirns führen und unser Verständnis des menschlichen Wesens erweitert haben und dies mit seiner einzigartigen Mischung aus empathischer Erzählkunst, wissenschaftlicher Gelehrsamkeit und dem Blick für das Kuriose. In seinem neuesten Buch erzählt Sacks von Menschen, die nach einer Hirnverletzung ihre Musikalität verlieren, und von anderen, die durch eine solche Verletzung erst Musikalität entwickeln, ja von Musik geradezu besessen sind. Sacks erweist sich wieder als Meister der Menschenbeschreibung und entdeckt an scheinbaren Defekten die besonderen Qualitäten der Menschen wie beim einarmigen Pianisten Paul Wittgenstein, für den die großen Komponisten Benjamin Britten, Paul Hindemith, Richard Strauss und Maurice Ravel eigens Stücke für die linke Hand schrieben. Musik, so zeigt Sacks, hat die einzigartige Kraft, das Gehirn in ganz bemerkenswerter und komplexer Weise zu verändern, und wir Menschen sind eine musikalische Spezies nicht nur eine sprachliche. Musik zieht uns unwiderstehlich in ihren Bann.
