This book provides a basis for understanding the impact of medical conditions on the developing brain and offers much practical clinical information. The authors first review normal brain development and then the influences that disrupt it. Specific developmental and genetic disorders are described. They explain the pediatric neuropsychological evaluation, from initial patient contact through assessment, interpretation and report writing. Many examples of how to obtain the best samples of behavior are given. Specific medical problems that affect brain-behavior functions are considered in-depth. These include hydrocephalus, epilepsy, head trauma, cancer, and cardiovascular and renal disease. Each chapter in this section provides essential information that contributes to an understanding of the system and of the impact of the illness of the child's brain function. This book will be of value to neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation specialists and other professionals directly involved in the care of children with medical conditions that affect brain function.

Reviews:

"Excellent text, well written and well organized. Contains much practical information for students, fellows and practitioners."--Keith Yeates, Director of Pediatric Neuropsychology, Ohio State University Children's Hospital

"Persons who work in pediatric settings will find the book to be a compendium of useful information and helpful clinical advice. The efforts of the authors to define basic neurobiological and neuropsychological concepts and to outline disease classifications and correlates will be of special benefit to persons who seek advanced training and professional certification in clinical neuropsychoogy. Because so many of the key concepts and disorders encountered by practitioners are reviewed in the book, it is an especially valuable resource for post-doctoral fellows. Although the book is not an introductory text in child neuropsychology, it would also be useful in teaching at the graduate or even undergraduate level, particularly as a supplement to courses in this area, and as a reference to practicum students....The most important contribution of this book is the emphasis it places on the biological as well as behavioral foundations of this emerging new field."--H. Gerry Taylor, Ph.D., in JINS

"The authors have taken a scholarly approach in their review of the studies pertaining to each medical condition. The authors have taken a major step towards filing the gap in the training of neuropsychologists and have done so in the tradition of neuropsychology as a clinical profession based upon science. The text itself is highly readable and informative to new initiates to the hospital settings....A valuable resource to senior clinicians."--Child Neuropsychology

"One text that teaches the practicing or aspiring child clinician much of what needs to be known...Pediatric Neuropsychology in the Medical Setting offers the practicing or in training clinician a detailed review of normal and abnormal brain development, the pediatric neurlogical and child clinical neuropsychological aspects."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

"Excellent physiological coverage without sacrificing psychological functions..."--Child and Adolescent Behavior Letter

"The present volume stems from the authors' collective rich and varied experience..."--Contemporary Psychology
