Neuropsychological Neurology: The Neurocognitive Impairments of Neurological Disorders

Arch Neurol. 2009;66(6):802-803. doi:10.1001/archneurol.2009.86

The purpose of the text is to provide practicing neurologists with an overview of neuropsychological implications of various neuromedical disorders. Larner notes that this work reflects a “modest excursion into applied neuropsychology . . . ,” and as an introductory overview of some common neuropsychological tools and the cognitive sequelae of various neurological and medical disorders for the practitioner, the book hits its mark. One of the most unique aspects of the book is its inclusion of brief overviews of a wide array of medical conditions that may have neurocognitive sequelae, thereby highlighting the importance of cognitive screening and neuropsychological assessment in disorders that may directly or indirectly affect the brain.
