Here is what the clinical neurologist has been waiting for in the Handbook series, an up-to-date series of definitive, tersely written, readable and at times, exciting, chapters which contain a wealth of information which is poorly understood by most clinical neurologists.
Volume 4 is a companion of other volumes previously reviewed. As the editors correctly point out, it is no longer possible to consider neuropsychology separate from neurophysiology and experimental psychology. As a consequence, great attention is given to interrelating these three fields in Volume 4. For helping them to accomplish this, the editors give particular thanks to Drs. Arthur L. Benton and Lamar Roberts.
