This volume is an attempt to bridge the gap between laboratory science and clinical practice, and to integrate aspects of neurophysiology and neuropsychology that will prove useful to clinicians. The subject of neglect embraces many important aspects of human behavior that involve a host of normal functions that may be disrupted pathologically or by trauma. Intention, Attention, Inattention and Neglect brings together these concepts starting with what are considered normal human functions and moving sequentially toward those that are affected by aging, disease processes, and trauma. It is hoped that the practitioner will gain a better perspective of the intricacies of this subject, and be placed in a better position to diagnose and treat the cause of any of these disabilities. The authors cover this subject from different perspectives. All, in some way, include philosophical models that relate to the structure, function and behavior of the area they write about. Softbound, 158 pages.
