It's all about the brain. My understanding of the brain was almost nonexistent, and this book explains it in a simple way. For example, I didn't know animals with only a spinal cord came first, then animals with brainstems, then animals with forebrain. Anatomically, each part is formed one after the other in that same order. Functionally, each part goe First of all, that's a huge book. Functionally, each part goes from the most basic to convey sensory informations , to the most advanced cognitive functions the regulation of eating, drinking, moving, being in the middle.
I can't wait to see how many more I'll learn in this book.
Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology is a contemporary, hugely informative textbook on the subject with a well-organized layout and clear text. This book is divided up in five parts, namely: 1 Back Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology is a contemporary, hugely informative textbook on the subject with a well-organized layout and clear text. This book is divided up in five parts, namely: 1 Background, 2 Cortical organization, 3 Cortical functions, 4 Higher functions, and 5 Plasticity and disorders. The text itself is easily readable also for those new to books on neuropsychology , for which I commend the authors, as their subject is not entirely that easy to write on.
The book is quite beautifully designed and very colourful, with many illustrations, photos, diagrams, and charts to help clarify biological processes, research results, etc. I would highly recommend this textbook for any and all who are looking for a well-updated and entirely complete work on neuropsychology. I found this book to be an amazingly engaging read, and was fascinated by so many case examples and such a proper, scientific approach. Dec 17, Steven Peterson rated it really liked it. This work is titled "Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology.
One positive feature: it is well written and you do not have to be a doctoral student in neuropsychology to follow the book from chapter to chapter. A second positive feature is the wide ranging coverage of basic subjects--from the evolution of the brain to its basic organization to the structure and func This work is titled "Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology.
A second positive feature is the wide ranging coverage of basic subjects--from the evolution of the brain to its basic organization to the structure and function of the cortex to a discussion of higher functions such as memory, language, emotions, and so on , as well as abnormalities that can occur in the brain. All in all, a valuable volume that provides the reader with a good introduction at more than a very basic level to the structure and functioning of the human brain. It also makes us think a little bit about what it means to be a human.
Jun 29, Dr. George H. Elder rated it it was amazing. I got this book to update my knowledge in the area, and I was pleased with the text. The pathways are well described as are the various functional areas, and as usual, by brain damage studies for the most part.
But we also get a bit into how events can lead to changes in the brain, as in PTSD. The memory sections are fine and the layout and organization of the sujects is clear. The text is very easy to read, unlike some, and I found that very refreshing. If I were teaching a course in neuropsych I got this book to update my knowledge in the area, and I was pleased with the text.
Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology
If I were teaching a course in neuropsychology, this would be the book I used--assuming it has been updated. A decent textbook, well-organized and readable. It's a little dry at parts, for a subject so fascinating, but overall I was able to learn a lot from it. The entire book was read for a third-year university course.
I love psychology, biology, and neuroscience so i'm a bit biased, but i would have honestly read this book for pleasure. I never got more enjoyment doing the required reading for a class as evidenced by the fact that I never actually did the required reading for my gen chem course Feb 17, Amanda A.

Aug 11, Jyotika Varmani rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Every psychology student. I just can't believe how the author has presented such a difficult to understand subject so simply! The simple, everyday analogies that the author makes to explain the structures and functioning of the brain are more than helpful.
They not only help understand the brain, but also aid recall. Moreover, there are numerous diagrams and case illustrations for an even deeper comprehension.

I have read several books on neuropsychology since I have found that I need many repetitions of study in this subject.
How I wish this was the first book I'd found, for then all the other books would have been just supplementary.
