This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the very important clinical issue of recovery of function after head injury. It emphasizes recent advances in research on the outcome of head injury and provides a critical commentary on methodological problems. The use of clinical neuropsychological procedures, laboratory-based cognitive tasks, psychiatric interviewing and radiological techniques to assess the outcome of head injury is fully discussed. The list of contributors to this book is distinguished, multidisciplinary and international. The volume will be of particular value to neurologists, neurosurgeons and clinical psychologists. With improvements in trauma care, the number of young people surviving head injury with varying degrees of brain damage has increased, so the question of their neurobehavioural recovery is timely.Levin, Harvey S. is the author of 'Neurobehavioral Recovery from Head Injury' with ISBN 9780195042870 and ISBN 0195042875.
